Subtitle needs review

Hi team,

I've created a subtitle for the video:

and now the status changed to "needs review".

So I'm wondering how is going to work next? Do I need to contact someone in my team to review it? Or someone qualified will get assigned to review this? Or it just going to wait until someone volunteer to pick up the review assignment?

Thanks in advance.


Thank you for your question, Shawn. 

No, you don't have to do anything. The reviewing task for your subtitles is presently "unassigned". As reviewers are volunteers too,  it can take some time until your subtitles get reviewed.



Hi Claude,

Thanks for quick reply.

And I think it might be helpful if the status (like "unassigned" or "assigned to whom" ) can be seen by everyone. :) 

Nevertheless, thanks again for your support.



Hi Shawn,

The status "unassigned" r "assigned to whom" is actually visible to all members of the TED team: I clicked on "View tasks for this video." left of the page. That should give you the tasks for your language, Chinese Simplified. As it is not one of my languages, I used the filter to view the tasks for it.

The task filter is perhaps not immediately intuitive, but it's not very complicated either.



Hi Claude,

Well received. Thanks

I'll close the question.
