Google now has it's own Team on Amara!
My name is Darren Bridenbeck, and I'm an Amara support member. I wanted to write to thank you for contributing to the Google I/O translations, and let you know that Google now has it's own team on Amara.
Just go to: http://www.universalsubtitles.org/en/teams/google/ to join it!
From here on out, this is where all Google related videos will be posted for translation on Amara. Join the team to make sure you're up-to-date on Google video translations.
Thanks again, and happy translating!
Google has a Translation Team on Amara!
Hi friends of Amara (aka Universal Subtitles),
We wanted to let you know that Google has their own team!
You can join it by going to http://www.universalsubtitles.org/en/teams/google/
They recently added a video that had nearly 20 translations in only a few days, and a lot of those translations came from this very team, Congrats!
Happy translating, and thanks for helping make the world a more connected and accessible place.
The Amara team
Thus no further translations of the subs for this video have been completed so far after the creation of the team; only 2 translations were completed on the day the team was created, and of the people who participated in all completed translations, only 8 joined the Google team (though of course, lots of other people joined it: 140 members so far)
This does not tally with "a lot of those translations came from this very team", if the phrase indicates the Google team. If it indicates another team, the only one of those I'm member of - and thus via which I could have received Darren Bridenbeck's Amara message - and that might loosely fit this phrase, is NewsHour: Vote 2012. Or did he perhaps send the same message to all participants of all Amara teams?
(1) Update July 15, 2012: contributors now can't add videos to the Google team anymore.
