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: In a contest like TED's, where I am free to choose the talks I want to translate, then I would simply decide not to contribute to spreading ideas I am not in agreement with, and let somebody else work on the translation. Then, if I HAD to translate something I don't agree with, I would certainly try to remain as objective as possible, although, I'm afraid, if your heart is not into it, you're not going to do as good as a job.
