Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,
I started getting "congratulations on getting on MBC
" messages from viewers on my Facebook account (Baba Ali) and I'm like "what's MBC?" so I started googling it and this is what I found:"MBC the first-ever, independent Arabic satellite TV station and a market leader, delivering news and quality, family entertainment programming to more than 130 million Arabic speaking people around the world"
Although the video series has been translated into many languages
, we only have two videos translated into Arabic. Honestly, I had no idea that the videos would be televised to such a huge Arabic-speaking audience so we weren't really prepared. Then again, the translations are done by a group of volunteers (viewers) so its not really in my hands.
Alhamdulillah with the effort of many viewers, we have the scripts to all the Reminder videos, the videos themselves, and of course software to do the actual subtitling. If there are people who can help us subtitle the videos for the Arabic speaking audience or any other language, please email email@example.com
. Also, there is a blog for the translators here
so please check it out.
Finally, if you can help us subtitle videos in English for those who are deaf, please contact us
because it will help us reach the hearing paired community. Learning to subtitle the videos isn't hard and we have a whole blog
setup to help you do it. Although it can be time consuming, it can also be rewarding as well. Remember, you never know how far you efforts will go. All these videos were done in a small room and now they have spread all around the world. The point is that our job is to put in the effort, make du'ah, and hope that it becomes successful**.
JazakAllah khair for all your efforts and du'ahs
**By successful I mean that we get rewarded for it in the hereafter...the success in this life is only temporary and worthless compared to the hereafter)
