Translators are CITVN Co-op members who subtitle CITVN Talks, and enable the inspiring ideas in them to crisscross languages and borders. 


Subtitles go through the following steps before publication:

1. Transcription

CITVN provides an original transcript in English. 

2. Translation

Subtitles are translated from the original language into the target language, using the simple Amara online platform.

3. Captioning

Subtitles are aligned with video.

4. Review and Approval

Subtitles are reviewed by an experienced Language Coordinator (a college professor or professional linguist). Before publication, reviewed translations are approved by a CITVN staff member.

Language Coordinators

Language Coordinators are skilled, experienced language teachers who help develop their language communities.

Key responsibilities:

  • Elevate translation quality

  • Support collaboration

  • Mentor new co-op members

  • Maintain language style guides

  • Perform the final proofread of subtitles (approval step)

  • Advise on linguistic questions and platform improvements


CITVN places tremendous priority on crediting co-op members for their contributions. Members with published subtitles will have:

  • Their profile appear in our translator directory

  • A special CITVN profile page, listing their published work


Co-op members receive free training in Zoom webconference meetings:
