Ted.com translation stats for March 2010

Sunday, March 28, 2010

It's been seven weeks since we last took a look at the translation stats for Ted.com, so let's see what's been happening during this time. These stats are especially important for those learning languages as Ted.com translations are not only good for comparing one language with another (and so if , but the content is almost always interesting as well. The current list of languages with most translations is as follows:

New languages in orange there are Arabic and Korean. Bulgarian continues to do an absolutely phenomenal job, especially considering the size of the language (10 million) compared to the others. All the others have a population in the hundreds of millions, except for Korean which has a population nearly entirely online (in the South, anyway).

The change over the past seven weeks for each of these languages is as follows:

Arabic: 238 --> 303 (+65)
Bulgarian: 358 --> 448 (+93)
Chinese (both traditional and simplified): 393 --> 491 (+98)
Croatian: 38 --> 44 (+6)
Czech: 36 --> 47 (+11)
Dutch: 97 --> 138 (+41)
French: 238 --> 294 (+56)
German: 152 --> 195 (+43)
Greek: 86 --> 102 (+16)
Hebrew: 165 --> 195 (+30)
Hungarian: 120 --> 156 (+34)
Indonesian: 35 --> 37 (+2)
Italian: 201 --> 263 (+62)
Japanese: 203 --> 238 (+35)
Korean: 199 --> 261 (+62)
Persian: 82 --> 93 (+11)
Polish: 162 --> 218 (+56)
Portuguese (Brazil + Portugal): 415 --> 481 (+67)
Romanian: 195 --> 235 (+40)
Russian: 161 --> 202 (+41)
Spanish: 488 --> 575 (+87)
Swedish: 48 --> 52 (+4)
Turkish: 162 --> 215 (+53)
Vietnamese: 42 (wasn't on the list last time, but had 9 talks translated over the past month)

The volume translated then for these languages is roughly the same as last time. Indonesian fell off the list, and Vietnamese is now on it.

The languages reordered by translation volume:
