Aikido Journal is looking for several native Japanese speakers to assist in transcribing into Japanese the audio of a historical seminar video featuring Koichi Tohei Sensei. The four-hour plus video footage preserves a rare seminar of Tohei Sensei from 1983.
Qualified volunteers will be sent a clip of a corresponding portion of the seminar video to transcribe into Japanese. They will also receive a copy of the Windows-based subtitling software, and a 30-minute video tutorial for using the software prepared by Stanley Pranin.
Aikido Journal would like to show its gratitude to the volunteers selected by providing them with a gift of items from our product catalog in addition to the completed video of the Tohei seminar.
- Native Japanese speakers with a knowledge of aikido
- Access to a computer with a windows operating system
- A headset to better hear and transcribe the audio
- Be willing to send a sample transcription of a 1-minute video using the subtitling software to demonstrate proficiency in performing the task.
If you would like to be considered as a member of the Aikido Journal transcription team, kindly reply via email describing a little about your background and qualifications. You will be sent a package with the software, tutorial, and video sample.
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
