Dear Open Education Community,

Knowledge 4 All Foundation together with the UNESCO Chair in OER in
Slovenia is testing a new machine translation service specifically
tailored for educational texts from EN to 11 languages (9 European and
2 BRIC).

Now we need to test its performance, as we plan to offer it to the
public and the community via an API. We’ve translated two open
courses, a Yale humanities and MIT natural sciences, to cover a
broader user spectrum. The MIT course had original subtitles, the Yale
one had already automatically generated transcriptions and we assume
the end translation quality would be different.

We need your help to answer a short survey that is available under
each video and at the top of the course. Your answers will help us
understand how valuable this product would be to other users.

You can select the languages in the video player by clicking on the CC button.
