All this would not have been possible without this incredible team of volunteers, both the TEDx Organizers who are finding these incredible speakers and the Translators who are labouring to make their words available across languages. The translators tend to spend 8 to 10 hours on each translation. We now have more than 20,000 translations of TEDTalks in 82 languages. They were done by 6,000 translators. We really want to thank you for your work and for being such extraordinary cultural ambassadors and helping us spread ideas.
