OpAntiSH Social Translation Project: 21 Languages in 7 Days.
UPDATE: The OpAntiSH video has been translated/subtitled into 23 languages in 7 day! That’s 2 more over the goal of 21 languages. Amazing!!
English, Finnish, Spanish, Dutch, German, Italian, French, Arabic, Portugese, Bosnian, Japanese, Chinese (Simplified), Swedish, Bulgarian, Czech, Serbian, Armenian, Romanian, Hungarian, Persian, Hebrew, Turkish and Polish. [Translations are still coming! We now also have Albanian! If anyone who is a native speaker of a language that is not mentioned above and still wants to support the project, please send your translation, I won’t say no].
We did it!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the volunteers that were involved in this project. I’m going to write a proper post to write your names one by one. This project would not have succeeded without you! All the translations will be posted soon on OpAntiSH Youtube Channel and on the Subtitled Videos webpage for OpAntiSH Social Translation Project. – Blog SQ post
THE IDEA: To translate and subtitle the video produced by Egypt’s Op Anti-Sexual Harassment to as many languages with the help of friends and volunteers from around the world.
WHY? We are all against sexual harassment and assault of women in Egypt and in any city in the World. We can all help by making this video SEEN and UNDERSTOOD in as many languages as possible. This will help OpAntiSH and similar initiatives working on the ground. The video is an awareness campaign that will encourage more people to stand up against sexual harassment, in Egypt and around the world.
WHEN? A goal is a dream with a deadline. My goal, with help of you and other volunteers around the world, is to complete 21 languages in 7 days, from 3rd February 2013 till 10th February 2013.
Can you or someone you know translate the voice-over (words spoken in the video) from the English translation below into your native language? No google translations please because they suck and we prefer translation from native speakers not machines. If you are willing to help, then first write in the comment box below and clearly state which language you will be translating to. If you can’t translate, you can still help by tweeting or sharing this post with your friends by using the share buttons available on the bottom of this webpage.
When you are done and you’re happy with the translation, post it in the comment box below. I’ll take the translation that you post in the comment box below and will insert it into the video using Amara. It’s a user-friendly web application for adding subtitles. If you feel like giving it a try yourself, please do help yourself. The website provides simple video tutorials on how to insert subtitles.
You deserve a reward for your effort. When the subtitling is ready, I’ll post the Amara video for each available translation in the following link. Please share these videos with your friends and network. All you’ll need to do is click the share button of your preferred language and Amara will provide you with a link to share the video.

00:00:19,315 –> 00:00:22,700
This is not a fight,
00:00:22,700 –> 00:00:25,833
there is a girl stuck inside this circle…
00:00:25,833 –> 00:00:28,733
the girl is being sexually assaulted.
00:00:28,733 –> 00:00:32,100
Right now there are 3-4 hands inside her pants,
00:00:32,100 –> 00:00:35,500
and 3-4 hands inside her shirt,
00:00:35,500 –> 00:00:39,615
there are 10 men pulling her from every body part…
00:00:39,615 –> 00:00:45,067
there is now a guy taking her shoes off so his partner can easily pull off her pants.
00:00:45,067 –> 00:00:48,700
There is a guy holding the girl saying he is protecting her,
00:00:48,700 –> 00:00:51,067
while in fact he is a harasser,
00:00:51,067 –> 00:00:54,233
and his hands are inside her underwear.
00:00:54,233 –> 00:00:57,200
There is another guy taking off his pants to give to her,
00:00:57,200 –> 00:01:00,033
and there is another trying to give her his jacket,
00:01:00,033 –> 00:01:08,207
and another trying to cover her, and tens are trying to stop them with weapons like knives.
00:01:18,833 –> 00:01:21,700
The guys helping her are telling her to run,
00:01:21,700 –> 00:01:25,733
the girl is screaming trying to tell them that those around her are not helping
00:01:25,733 –> 00:01:27,933
that they are pulling her back.
00:01:27,933 –> 00:01:29,667
She is afraid to fall,
00:01:29,667 –> 00:01:31,900
and someone is trying to remove her pants again.
00:01:31,900 –> 00:01:34,133
But no one hears her screaming.
00:01:34,133 –> 00:01:37,333
This girl cannot breathe from the pushing and the pulling.
00:01:37,333 –> 00:01:39,533
She is about to faint,
00:01:39,533 –> 00:01:43,833
but thankfully she is not wearing a scarf like the other girl who was almost strangled with it,
00:01:43,833 –> 00:01:46,744
or like the third girl who was penetrated with a knife,
00:01:46,744 –> 00:01:51,267
or like the 4th or the 5th girls who were kidnapped in cars but were able to jump out of them…
00:01:51,267 –> 00:01:53,867
or like the mother who was violated in front of her children.
00:01:53,867 –> 00:01:57,300
These girls were raped by mobs in front of everyone.
00:01:57,300 –> 00:02:01,867
These girls did not imagine coming out alive from inside this circle.
00:02:01,867 –> 00:02:05,733
No one will visit these girls’ homes to tell them they are heroines.
00:02:05,733 –> 00:02:08,600
Because no one wants to know about these girls.
00:02:08,600 –> 00:02:12,021
No one wants to read, hear, or see.
00:02:33,967 –> 00:02:36,233
But we will not be silenced.
00:02:36,233 –> 00:02:37,867
We will not be broken.
00:02:37,867 –> 00:02:39,567
We will not shy away.
00:02:39,567 –> 00:02:42,900
There are mob sexual assaults in Tahrir Square and its surroundings.
00:02:42,900 –> 00:02:45,433
Come and stand against the rapists,
00:02:45,433 –> 00:02:47,900
because we do not plan to hide in our homes.
00:02:47,900 –> 00:02:57,456
This is our square, this is our revolution, and we will fight this battle to the last breath.
00:03:34,332 –> 00:03:47,866
You can help in many ways, volunteer with us
