A few weeks ago, I saw Stefania Buoni’s request for translating her TEDx Talk https://www.ted.com/talks/stefania_buoni_quando_mamma_o_papa_hanno_qualcosa_che_non_va?language=en on (TED Tanslators FB group) https://www.facebook.com/groups/ITranslateTEDTalks/. Luckily, my subtitling project was delayed, so I started working on this immediately.
During the course of my translation, I got in touch with Stefania on FB.
Aimee Ansari @ TEDx Youth Bath
Few days ago, I had the opportunity to translate a wonderful talk by Aimee Ansari at TEDx Youth Bath. She is the CEO of Translators without Borders. In her talk, she stresses the importance of access to Information in times of crisis. It needs to be provided in the right language at the right time in the right format. Communication of critical life saving information in ones local language is important. Not only this, it needs to be accessible and easily understood by the locals too.

Phil Mitchell @ TEDx Mile High
An innovative idea for the betterment of society has been presented by Phil Mitchell @ TEDx Mile High. Just imagine, feeling really sick and not knowing what to do. But according to Dr. Mitchell’s ER house call, all you have to do is call a number and the person on the other end of the line will be there to help you through your crisis. He will ask your symptoms and also have full access to your medical records. He will be qualified enough to tell you if you can be treated at home or will need to move to the hospital. Not only this, a fully equipped ER will be at your door within no time. It will be from the comfort of your own home that things like stitches, IV fluids will be taken care of.
She was a banker doing great for herself and unjustly faced a conviction. She went to jail for the crime she did not commit. Ever imagine how that life would be like and for a moment think how it would impact yours. And in a day and age where most Money crimes are settled outside of the courts with money.
