Universal Subtitles Making Rounds in Malaysia and Indonesia

It’s been another exciting couple of weeks at the Lingua desk!

In mid-Feb, we held Universal Subtitles (now Amara) workshops with over 30 participants from different organisations at Camp Sambel 2. People from Indonesia, West Papua, Malaysia, South Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia went hands-on with the Universal Subtitles utility, joining our team page and adding lots of great new videos.

By joining the EngageMedia team page, you can help subtitle and translate their amazing content, contributing to having more people around the world understand their stories.

Over the first weekend of March, we took the workshop to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Partnering with CJ.MY and MalaysiaKini, I had a fruitful workshop with 50 citizen journalists from across Malaysia.

KL WorkshopWe previously discussed a goal of having every important CJ.MY available in the 4 major languages of Malaysia; English, Malay, Chinese, and Tamil. In the months to come, look out for more collaborations between MalaysiaKini and EngageMedia.

And before I sign off, I’d like to alert everyone about the Indonesia Lingua Tour, which is a series of workshops held in Jakarta, Bandung, and Yogyakarta. It kicks off at the end of March and runs for 2 weeks.
