Thank you so much for your kind offer, dear Matthew, and for allowing us to get to know your further questions here, dear Mollie.
To answer your first question, typically, if we start a video and are working on that video, our Amara username and the language we’re working on will be shown in the Activity tab, as shown below, which can be seen by those who have Amara accounts (I haven’t checked if those without one can do the same ):
Regarding the second question, yes, we do have many videos with burnt-in English subtitles, such as:
. Short films
. English shorts by Thay
. Dharma talks / talk excerpts in Vietnamese by Thay
Many volunteers have already subtitled these videos in such languages as Portuguese, German, Chinese, Italian, to name only a few. You can see the list of subtitle languages sorted by complete / incomplete statuses on the right side of the screen.
The Vietnamese videos by Thay have for the last few months been published with separately-uploaded English subtitles so adding English subtitles, particularly to these videos, may create duplicates and it may be not worth it unfortunately.
I don’t know everything about Amara, on top of the fact that Amara is releasing new features every now and then, so please take my answers lightly
Your original question helps us all, so no question is too small
Also please don’t hesitate to let me know if my response somehow shows that I don’t understand your questions correctly, or if there are any other questions down the road - I’m here for you.
I sincerely appreciate the love and care @Matthew and you have put into this work and these lovely messages. Always. It’s nourished me reading your messages. You both make my day!
Much appreciation to everyone
