Ted.com translation stats for November 2010

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

I waited a bit longer than the usual six weeks before this update on the Ted.com translation stats as I was keeping an eye on Bulgarian and Spanish to see if Bulgarian would end up taking first place, and though it once got within three translations of first place Spanish has managed to hold first place. The numbers at the moment look like this:


The language with the largest increase over the past two months is definitely French, which added a full 145 translations since the last update compared to the next highest at 92, Italian. Besides this there aren't that many surprises. Chinese is also now close to first place but considering the population this is not that surprising a result (whereas Bulgarian is always notable considering its tiny population), and no languages have dropped off or been added to the list. Also, when checking the overall list (not just the top performers) there doesn't seem to be anything worth noting there either. Here are the numbers compared to those two months ago:

Arabic: 557 -- 632 (+75)
Bulgarian: 699 -- 747 (+48)
Chinese : 665 -- 730 (+65)
Croatian: 119 -- 163 (+44)
Czech: 122 -- 192 (+71)
Dutch: 286 -- 334 (+48)
French: 538 -- 683 (+145)
German: 341 -- 396 (+55)
Greek: 204 -- 238 (+34)
Hebrew: 410 -- 490 (+80)
Hungarian: 261 -- 301 (+40)
Italian: 532 -- 624 (+92)
Japanese: 357 -- 396 (+39)
Korean: 498 -- 579 (+81)
Persian: 138 -- 156 (+18)
Polish: 410 -- 490 (+80)
Portuguese: 694 -- 742 (+48)
Romanian: 411 -- 494 (+83)
Russian: 350 -- 382 (+32)
Serbian: 119 -- 153 (+34)
Spanish: 710 -- 753 (+43)
Turkish: 451 -- 525 (+74)
Vietnamese: 161 -- 232 (+71)

and rearranged from most to least we get the following, which shows that Persian may be in danger of dropping off the list.

French: 538 -- 683 (+145)
Italian: 532 -- 624 (+92)
Romanian: 411 -- 494 (+83)
Korean: 498 -- 579 (+81)
Hebrew: 410 -- 490 (+80)
Polish: 410 -- 490 (+80)

Arabic: 557 -- 632 (+75)
Turkish: 451 -- 525 (+74)
Vietnamese: 161 -- 232 (+71)
Czech: 122 -- 192 (+71)
Chinese : 665 -- 730 (+65)
German: 341 -- 396 (+55)
Bulgarian: 699 -- 747 (+48)
Portuguese: 694 -- 742 (+48)
Dutch: 286 -- 334 (+48)

Croatian: 119 -- 163 (+44)
Spanish: 710 -- 753 (+43)
Hungarian: 261 -- 301 (+40)
Japanese: 357 -- 396 (+39)
Serbian: 119 -- 153 (+34)
Greek: 204 -- 238 (+34)
Russian: 350 -- 382 (+32)
Persian: 138 -- 156 (+18)

So which language is right behind Persian? Slovak at 150 articles. We may see it on the list soon, especially considering how easy it is to turn Czech to Slovak, and Czech has 192 articles right now.
