Call for Subtitles

Sunday, January 10th, 2016

Deutsche Version weiter unten.

As you might know, during 32c3 the Subtitles Angels created real-time subtitles for all the talks which took place in Hall 1 and 2. These allowed hearing impaired visitors to follow the talks, and also provided assistance to the non-native German or English speakers.

As the last recordings are being released, the task of creating subtitles for all recording has started. For this we need your help!
If you have the capacity to create subtitles for a talk (perhaps one you wanted to watch in detail anyway), could translate a transcript or would like to do quality control, please check out subtitles.media.ccc.de and join #subtitles on hackint.

Being new to subtitling CCC talks is not a problem at all. Getting started is easy. And if transcribing is not for you, you can always work on the translations and quality control.

If you are willing to help, please take a minute to read through the new work-flow and style guide.
Please also read through these if you have previous experience subtitling CCC talks, because we have redesigned the entire interface to include Amara.

The finished subtitles will be released into the CDN and announced via Twitter at @c3srt_releases.

P.S. Remember the audio problems during the opening eventSubtitles were available all the way through. :-)
And by the way, subtitles also allow machine-indexing of the recordings. That means things like searchable archives become possible.


Wie Ihr vielleicht wisst, haben die Subtitles Angels alle Vorträge des 32c3, die in Saal 1 & 2 stattfanden, in Echtzeit untertitelt. Dies erlaubte Besuchern, die schlecht oder gar nicht hören können, trotzdem den Talks zu folgen. Zudem unterstützte dies auch Hacker, die nicht muttersprachlich Deutsch oder Englisch sprechen.

Während nun die letzten Aufzeichnungen des Congress veröffentlicht werden, hat die Untertitelung der aufgezeichneten Talks begonnen. Dafür brauchen wir Eure Hilfe!

Solltet Ihr Lust haben, ein Video zu untertiteln (vielleicht von einem Talk, den ihr sowieso schauen wolltet) oder Qualitätssicherung zu machen, indem Ihr den Talk anschaut und kleinere Fehler und Timings korrigiert, oder auch fertige Untertitel zu übersetzen: Schaut bitte bei subtitles.media.ccc.de oder in #subtitles (auf hackint) vorbei.

Solltet Ihr mit der Oberfläche von subtitles.media.ccc.de und dem Untertiteln von CCC-Vorträgen nicht vertraut sein, schaut Euch einfach den Workflow sowie die Untertitelstandards an. Fertige Untertitel werden im CDN veröffentlicht und via Twitter bei @c3srt_releases bekanntgegeben.

P.S. Erinnert Ihr Euch an die Audioprobleme während des Opening Events? Die Untertitel funktionierten den ganzen Talk hindurch. :-)
Übrigens: Untertitel machen ein maschinendurchsuchbares Vortragsarchiv möglich.

Simultaneous translations at 31C3

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

31C3 is getting closer, and the translation team is once again at the ready to translate all German talks into English, and also a selection of English talks into German.

You can listen in on the streams by either selecting the appropriate stream, or by changing the stream audio channel (if your player allows). If you are on the Eventphone DECT network, you can dial in to various streams: 8011 for Saal 1, 8012 for Saal 2, 8014 for Saal G, and 8016 for Saal 6.
