I came across TED for a first time few years back when I was watching a TEDTalk video record on Youtube.
Soon I found out that TED is full of interesting and inspiring presentations and stories told by people on the edge of their field.
During the period when I was exploring the possibilities of TED I found by chance a great, inspiring, funny and absolutely amazing talk. I was quite astonished. I shared this talk with my friends about whom I thought might appreciate it just as much as I did. But some of them were complaining about the fact they could not fully understand this talk due to their level of English. And that was the first of my TEDTalk translations.
After the translation was completed I shared the talk with them again and they were charmed. And it was then, when I realized this is a way how to spread the great idea of TEDTalks not just among my friends but among general community as well.
And this is my TED story - from surprised user to enthusiastic contributor.
