In 2010, when we invited Adobe TV users to change the way our videos were translated, we never imagined that in five short years we would have more than 240 volunteers and 26,000 minutes of translated video, covering 35 languages.
Our volunteers have built a passionate, dedicated community that produces highquality translations for users all over the world. We are deeply grateful for your contribution.
Recently, we made some technology changes to Adobe TV that have interfered with the community translation workflow. In fact, you may have encountered some problems moving videos to your workarea or watching translated videos. We are working hard to resolve these issues and add some improvements to the Adobe TV Community Translation project. We hope to relaunch it in the coming months. Keep checking this page for updates on our progress.
