Thanks to almost 5,000 volunteer learners worldwide, and our partnership with ABBYY Language Services, Coursera’s Global Translator Community has translated over one million words of course content into Russian. In less than two months, we’ve hit a symbolic milestone in our mission to provide education to anyone, anytime, anywhere.
Russian subtitles are now available for Inspiring Leadership through Emotional Intelligence (Case Western Reserve University). Another four courses added recently – including Bioinformatics Algorithms (University of California, San Diego), Introduction to Public Speaking (University of Washington), and others – are in the approval process. The list of courses in English available for Russian translation includes recent additions are such as Model Thinking (University of Michigan) and Functional Programming Principles in Scala (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne).
We are actively growing our global translation team to continue to provide our courses in multiple languages, and are accepting volunteers to translate courses into dozens of different languages.
