Sal Khan with Chinese subtitles

May 08, 2012 By Mark Hurst 2 Comments

For our Chinese-speaking friends, you can now watch Sal Khan’s Gel video with Chinese subtitles. People I talked to in China recently hadn’t heard of Khan Academy (though there are Khan Academy videos posted on RenRen’s 56.com, which is not blocked by the great firewall)… I hope this video helps spread Sal’s work a bit further there.

And thanks to the good people at Beijing-based Yeeyan.org for creating the subtitled video. Yeeyan is a company that crowdsource-translates English-language media to Chinese. I understand they have over 10,000 translators in their community, and very good editors on staff to keep up quality control.

This is the first Gel video to be subtitled in Chinese – and hosted on RenRen, where all Chinese users can access it – and I hope Yeeyan and I can make more available soon.
