Users in over 100 countries can now have the full TED experience in their native tongue.
TED, the lauded nonprofit that brings together Technology, Entertainment and Design through a series of talks and presentation by some of the world’s most fascinating people, has updated their Android app to version 2.0. All the same great talks and video content is still there, but now it’s available in 20 new languages thanks to some wonderful volunteers in TED’s Open Translation Project.
This change gives people from over 100 countries the ability to use the app and browse for talks, use the help files and FAQ sections, and get the full experience in their native language. In addition, subtitles are now offered in 102 languages for the talks themselves, with Somali being the newest translation.
TED is one of those apps everyone should look at. Maybe it’s not for you, but you owe it to yourself to see the passion and ideas the speakers bring to their talks. Chances are you’ll find something you love, and maybe even something that changes your view of the world. And now, chances are it will be in your native tongue. Grab the app at the Google Play link above.
