Ethics for Design's subtitles
This repo contains every subtitle available for translation, from the ethicsfordesign-website repo. If you're interested in translating one (or several, or even a small slice) of the subtitles, you'll find the roadmap below.
If you're not familiar with git, but still want to translate some files, you can google each of these steps which are very basics, and find some nice tutorials in order to get started. Do not hesitate to create an issue, I'll do my best to help you. Otherwise, send us an email and we'll figure something out.
