Please note: We are currently transitioning to a new subtitling platform. Applications to join the program will be paused until further notice. The TED team on Amara will not be accessible after December 31, 2020. In the coming weeks, we will share the steps you can take to get started on the new platform — no need to sign up for CaptionHub at this time. Thank you for your patience!

TED Translators are a global community of volunteers who subtitle TED Talks, and enable the inspiring ideas in them to crisscross languages and borders.
