Call for Interpreters: translate 35C3!

If you are multilingual and fluent in German, English and maybe other languages, please consider joining the translation team.

We interpret ALL talks in the five main halls live and in real-time. German talks are interpreted into English, and vice versa. Our work is transmitted live in the lecture halls, streamed to the Internet?*, and recordings are published on CCC sites and YouTube. A second translation channel will be operated in the same way.

That is a lot of material to translate and in order to succeed, we need YOU. With the second channel, you have the chance to contribute in an even more special way if you can interpret into another interesting language (from English or German). We’ve so far focused on adding French language translations, but if your skills differ just let us know – especially if you can bring along a few interpreters for the same target language. Sometimes, we might even use the second channel for interesting things that are not (strictly) translations.

Don’t be shy. If you are uncertain whether you’re good enough, chances are that you’ll do just fine. In case you‘re struggling, we will talk it over, no harm done.

Simply send an email to “translate-subscribe(at)” and write a quick intro to the mailing list after you’ve completed your subscription. Also sign up as a translation angel at the Engelsystem. Most importantly, come to one of our meetings. The kick-off meeting on 26 Dec, 20:00 would be best, but if you can’t make that, join us at the earliest meeting that you can attend.

So please, take this chance and help us bring C3 to an even wider international audience.

For more information, you can contact us on Twitter at @c3lingo and #c3t, or via mail to translate(at) (after subscribing).

See (and possibly hear) you at 35C3!
