The standard for a TEDx talk title is:

[Talk title] - [Speaker's name] (at) TEDx[Event name].

For example:

How many lives can you live? - Sarah Kay at TEDxEast

La felicidad en el trabajo - Santiago Vazquez at TEDxGalicia ...

Ideally, the description should contain 1-2 sentences overview of the talk, without links or speaker's biography. The text explaining what TEDx is should be left out.

Also, I'd like to point out and remind you that TEDx event names are branded terms, (like TED, TEDTalks etc) and should not be translated or written with a space between TEDx and event name. So, the correct naming is:





TEDxLondonBusinessSchool etc.

Please make sure you review these standard guidelines before approving the original transcript task.
