Help Wanted for Amiga Video Transcripts
Given limited resources for this project, we are looking for the help of passionate Amiga friends to create a first set of text transcripts of certain Amiga videos of historical interest. This includes three of the four videos already released on Amiga Forever 6.0 (one already has a transcript), and three additional videos.
All videos are in English, totaling about 5 and a half hours of footage still requiring transcripts. The transcription would be limited to what people actually say (no names of people who speak, no descriptions of sounds, music texts or other events). Technical skills are not required to create the transcripts, however in our experience it really helps to be a native speaker, otherwise you have to go over and over the most "difficult" parts. Some videos include limited Amiga terms, so some familiarity with Amiga also helps. Final proofreading and consistency checks will be done by us.
The transcripts would initially be included, in English and in other languages, in a future version of Amiga Forever. Credits would be given to the person(s) who created the transcripts. The limited budget sadly reflects interest in this topic and the fact that the project is mostly driven by passion, however the work would certainly be paid (preferably via PayPal), and free copies of Amiga Forever would also be given to the friends who help us.
As a possible second step, we may be looking for help in creating translations of the English texts into German, French, Spanish and Italian.
If you would like to help with either the transcription or the translations please send a note via the Contact page (select "Would like to Help").
