ElsaMarie DSilva - International Translation Day 2017

  • 0:01 - 0:03
    Hi, my name is ElsaMarie DSilva
  • 0:03 - 0:06
    and I'm the founder and CEO
    of Red Dot Foundation
  • 0:06 - 0:08
    also known as Safecity
  • 0:09 - 0:13
    Safecity is a crowd map
    for sexual violence in public spaces
  • 0:13 - 0:15
    and this is collected
    as location based trends
  • 0:15 - 0:17
    visualised on a map, as hotspots
  • 0:18 - 0:21
    As you know, sexual violence
    is a global pandemic
  • 0:21 - 0:24
    we have received
    a lot of international recognition
  • 0:24 - 0:29
    for our work in crowdsourcing data
    and technology to address it
  • 0:30 - 0:35
    As a result, we've been invited
    to speak across the world
  • 0:35 - 0:39
    and share our work with several audiences
  • 0:39 - 0:43
    I speak in English, but my audiences
    may not know English
  • 0:43 - 0:44
    as their primary language
  • 0:45 - 0:49
    Therefore, translation is critical
    because it helps share my message
  • 0:49 - 0:53
    in the true context and meaning
    that I intend it to be
  • 0:54 - 0:57
    For example, I'm in Argentina right now
  • 0:57 - 0:59
    and I've had several speaking assignments
  • 0:59 - 1:02
    with over five hundred people
    at each of these places
  • 1:03 - 1:06
    Without the help of translators,
    these people
  • 1:06 - 1:08
    would not have understood
    a word of what I said
  • 1:09 - 1:14
    yet, they have appreciated my work
    and they've got the context and meaning
  • 1:14 - 1:16
    of what we are doing
  • 1:16 - 1:19
    So in this International Translator's Day
  • 1:19 - 1:22
    I would like to celebrate
    translators and translations
  • 1:22 - 1:26
    And thank you very much
    because language is so critical
  • 1:26 - 1:32
    we have to find the bridges
    to share our experiences with each other
  • 1:33 - 1:34
    Thank you.
