Projects: Open Bible Stories
Open Bible Stories is an open project to create A Visual Mini-Bible in Every Language. In order to translate these visual stories, we are building a video translation API that will be powered by online crowd sourcing. Crowd sourcing provides a way for any person around the world to help in the translation of these stories. These individuals will simply upload their audio files to a website, and the API will process and piece together a translated version of the video. For more information on the API process, check out this API Diagram. The ultimate goal is to create a tool that any mission agency can use to aid in the translation of their video resources.

Visual Bible Stories for Every Language
Over 3 billion hours of video are consumed per month on Youtube. These video services have made video the dominate technology for distributing the Bible in every language around the globe.
Powered by an API
Application programming interfaces, or APIs, provide a vehicle for sharing the video translation process across multiple applications. With one video translation service running, you can power your Android App, iPhone App, and website in one central place.
