My hovercraft is full of eels. Here's what we want to avoid.
"Dirty Hungarian Phrasebook" is a Monty Python sketch aired in 1970 on Monty Python's Flying Circus. The popularity of this sketch has led to the phrase "My hovercraft is full of eels." as being synonymous for mistranslation.
The Autodesk Open Translation Project is an Autodesk Labs project where we work closely with a community of volunteer students, educators, and freelance translators who believe in the culture of participation and the power that Open Learning resources can bring to the world at large. We are using Autodesk Labs to actively seek feedback and engagement on how to evolve and improve our Open Learning initiatives.
Our worldwide vision for open learning requires that we reach out in many languages. To this end, we are looking for skilled volunteers like yourself to join our community and help translate the subtitles for our video tutorials hosted on YouTube. All languages are welcome!
You can express yourself regarding open learning by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post to the dedicated forum in the Autodesk Labs project.
Correct translation is alive in the lab.
