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 22 2012: I tend to tranlsate speeches that I find interesting. I usually agree with them, at least in principle, but I have to admit I often lack the tools or knowledge to be able to disagree with all the theories underlying them. To answer your question: as a rule, in order to help spread the idea, I prefer to agree with the main message the talker is trying to convey . But, should I partly disagree with the message, I must really really really look up to the person giving the speech and her/his ideas in order to give help spreading their ideas....such a short time, so many talks/websites/articles to translate...I prefer to use my time to help to sprea ideas I believe in.
