Previous World Duchenne Awareness Day, we published a series of educational videos to make Duchenne Care information accessible for as many people as possible, and more specific for children as well. All twenty videos are published on the YouTube channel of the World Duchenne Organization. Each video provides a clear explanation of a different aspect of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy care. Each country can then make the video available in their own language by adding their translation in both voice and text.
Help translate those videos so all Duchenne patients worldwide, and their family, can benefit from this information!
The videos on DMD-care should ideally be available to all children with Duchenne and their parents, and in their own language. However, it is very time-consuming to do all translations ourselves. So if you are willing and able to help us, all Duchenne families will be very grateful!
1. Replace the voice over in the video file
The best way to help us is by downloading the videos text-files (scripts) and a tutorial file. You’ll find these on the DMD-care website under downloads. These videos are high quality versions without the voice over. If you are a keen video editor you can add your own voice over in your native language. Or have someone (preferably a native speaker) help you do the voice over.
After you have translated, please send your file back to us so we can have them checked by a physician. This allows us to make sure everything is correct. Once everything is approved, and edited, we will add your translated version of the video to our channel.
2. Subtitles for Youtube
If you don’t have the ability to do video editing or produce a voice over, writing a translation for subtitles is another helpful alternative. Download the voice over scripts on the DMD-care website, make your translation in a seperate file, and send them back to us so we can have your work checked for errors by a physician. When everything is all right you can add them to the videos on our Youtube channel.
3. Translate the tutorials
Download the tutorial and translate it to your native language. Then send it to us via email. We will have it checked for errors and make it available on this website.
Please send your translation proposals to SOC@worldduchenne.org.
