Would you translate (or spread) a TED talk if you didn't agree with it's topic or the speaker's point of view?

I think, I've said it all in the title.

Would you translate a TED talk even if you did not agree with it? Do you think that people will feel you agree if they see your name written next to it?

Would you be willing to spread ideas, even if you did not agree with them?

    Apr 21 2012: One thing is translating, another is sharing the same views of the speaker. Here at TED we are all volunteers so I guess we can refrain from translating talks we do not agree with.

      Apr 22 2012: I did not know all the translators are volunteers.
      Very interesting.

      Well, you know what they say about volunteers Paola?

      "Volunteers do not get paid,
      not because they are worthless,
      But, because they are PRICELESS!

      Thank you and all your fellow volunteers for the wonderful work you do.
      Gracias, Merci, Domo Arigato Gozaimasu
