Khan Academy looking for translators!

Hey guys, my first question goes out to the duo mods. Since Khan Academy is a non-profit organization, I was wondering if we could reach out to them and translate their site for free (or at a very low price). This would be a great way to spread the word about duolingo.

My second question is for you bilingual duo-users. Would you guys want to look into this? I'm sure you all appreciate free education based on your enthusiasm for this site, this would be a great way to show your thanks and test your knowledge of the foreign language. :)

I love this idea. KA's and Duo's objectives are surprisingly similar- to bring a world class free education to anyone, anywhere, and, of course, in any language.

Exactly what I was thinking. :) Duolingo gets its publicity and KA gets to spread its knowledge in more languages. Everybody wins!

Oh and another win: the translators get to practice their language and test how good they are at it!

Er zijn heel wat Vlamingen en Nederlanders op deze site. De meesten zijn echter vrij goed in Engels en je merkt niet direct dat ze Nederlandstalig zijn

The more the merrier! I know that Luis van Ahn is already pretty well acquainted with Ted. Let's spread duolingo like a wildfire.

As an engineering student, Khan Academy is really helpful. I was thinking of doing some translations for Portuguese practice sometime.

i doubt their so called education for "everyone, everywhere". i cannot access their site because it's "forbidden" by Google for my country (stupid error 403). you may wanna take a look at this link : https://code.google.com/p/khanacademy/issues/detail?id=7021

so no translation from me. (i think it already supports Persian language). yeah it's not their fault but whatever it is, self made restrictions exist from their part.

Hello, just sharing this with you.

A few weeks ago I wrote them about the Portuguese translation. They answered promptly stating that this effort was already being done and should be ready next year.

In case you wish to take a look at their work, here's a nice link. There are a lot of videos translated already. http://www.fundacaolemann.org.br/khanportugues/
