Translate the global web. A new app for social translation of social media, brought to you by @meedan. Currently in beta.
Bridge is currently only available to translators and project leaders who have set up their accounts after contacting Meedan Labs. To apply to use the software for your online community, please visit http://www.meedan.com/bridge. This is a beta application.
Bridge enables rapid translation of public social media content and the addition of important cultural, social and political notes to facilitate understanding and build connections. \
Here's what you can do with this application:
Translate and Annotate: Participants can translate and annotate the most relevant and interesting content from social media by clicking the browser extension when viewing the content.
Request Translations: Participants can place interesting content into a request queue for others to view and translate.
Share With the World: Every translation completed under a Bridge project can be published and shared with the broader world.
When adding this extension to your browser, Google will ask for the following permissions. Here's how we'll use them:
- Read and Change Data: This lets us request data from the Bridge Reader, Bridge API, Embedly, Twitter and Google Fonts. The extension does not change any data on any of these sites without your permission.
To apply to use the software for your online community, please visit http://www.meedan.com/bridge. We work with journalists, fans, humanitarians, development organizations, internet culture researchers and anyone passionate about building bridges across the global web.
