You may know Khan Academy. Khan Academy is the world biggest online video learning platform in the world. You can learn any subject you want. It has been more than 1 year that Khan Academy Burmese Translation organization started in Myanmar. They are translating many videos as much as they can.

Sometimes, to change the country or to develop the country, you don’t need to create a product. You just need to help to those who are already doing it. For example, if you have idea to share local people localized content of education, you better help KABT team. You shouldn’t create an another platform. So I suggest you to help them as much as you can. It is developing the country by education. For it, KABT partnered with Ooredoo Myanmar and Mastercard in Myanmar. In order to get more videos, they are making translation competition.
Translation competition, Translate-a-thon, is happening now in Myanmar, inviting every people to translate in the same room. Then sponsors give prizes to the most outstanding translators who translate the highest amount of video. On November, KABT is having the third Translate-a-thon event. It will take place in Ooredoo head office. You can register at www.translateathonmyanmar.org. I know you would say that you are not in Myanmar or not in Yangon. It’s OK. You can still sign up at www.khanacademyburmese.org and start translating video now.
