Using Universal Subtitles To Track Libyan Conflict

The Libyan conflict has made international headlines this year and the Universal Subtitles community has absolutely taken notice. Our great volunteers have been translating videos into multiple languages, and Universal Subtitles is now being used as a medium through which world news can be shared with everyone.

This particular video is extremely popular among people following the conflict on Twitter. It presents a speech given by Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the Libyan ruler’s son and colleague.
