Talk to me about
My TED story
I found out about TED from my sister, who heard about it when she went to Boston; USA, on a educational visit with her colleagues at The Royal Library in Copenhagen. She told me that I could volunteer my services and translate speeches. I am always willing to take on translation projects, and when the purpose is to spread good ideas all over the world, I will happily do it for free.
