This project is a new initiative, launched in January 2010, which allows Osho Talks to be translated into any language, by volunteers, worldwide. At launch, translators in more than 36 languages have contributed to this project. We’d love you to join us … Register now »
The current plan is to expand this project on an ongoing basis to an ever increasing number of Osho Talks. We will try to find a mixture of talks from different periods and series as spoken by Osho and we will make available a mixture of full talks (which can be 120min+), selected individual questions (30-60 min) and shorter pieces, so that translators can select videos for different involvement levels. Beginners or people with less available time can work on smaller videos; others can work on full questions or full talks.
The dotSUB translation software allows collaboration in a project so longer talks can be also translated by small teams, perhaps with a friend or a group which comes together for a particular project. And our Facebook site OSHO TALKS is available for additional support; there we can create more and more language groups where we can share our joy as well as our trials and tribulations related to this wonderful translation as meditation.
When you sign up to translate a video, this particular talk will be exclusively assigned to you (or to your team) for 30 days in which time we hope you can complete the translation. If not, it is very easy to extend your time assigned. In case you cannot or you don’t want to complete the translation we will then assign the project to another person or team to complete the task.
Translations will be reviewed and approved to give each translation a high quality standard. We have people who are familiar with Osho in different languages and if you want to get involved in reviewing translations, please connect with us.
The Osho Talks Video Translation Project is based on four aspects of Osho's work:
