EMMANUEL TV GLOBAL TRANSLATION PROJECT

Welcome to the ‘Emmanuel TV Global Translation Project’!

‘Emmanuel TV Translators’ are a global community of volunteers who transcribe and translate Emmanuel TV’s videos on YouTube, thus helping to fulfil our mission of changing LIVES, changing NATIONS and changing THE WORLD through the glorious Gospel Of Jesus Christ!

If God has put it in your heart to volunteer as a TRANSCRIBER or TRANSLATOR, please fill out the form below with your information and follow the instructions.

The Role Of The TRANSLATOR

The role of Emmanuel TV Translators is to translate accurately and entirely the content of Emmanuel TV’s YouTube videos into your respective language.

• Can you fluently speak or write in another language apart from English?
• Do you own a laptop or computer?
• Are you willing to voluntarily contribute your time and skills to a project that will spread the Gospel to the four corners of the globe?

If YES, please submit your information in the form below, follow the instructions and we will be in touch with you shortly.

Please Note – if your language of choice is not available in the drop-down menu below, it means it is not yet among the languages compatible with YouTube’s in-built translation options.

About...

Emmanuel TV has launched the exciting initiative of translating ALL of our content on social media to as many languages as possible to reach a wider audience globally with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Inspired by Prophet TB Joshua’s visionary motto ‘Changing Lives, Changing Nations and Changing The World’, this project is enabling people wherever they are in the world and whatever language they speak to witness God’s power and experience His presence through the ministry of Emmanuel TV.

If God has put it in your heart, you too can apply to become an Emmanuel TV Translator or Transcriber to enable this mission and vision to transcend languages and borders – for the glory of God!

History

The inspiration to translate Emmanuel TV’s content came about by the fusion of Divine arrangement and genuine willingness from our global viewing community. Passionate viewers around the world started asking if they could translate faith-building material in order to share them with friends and family, several even independently starting YouTube channels to promote such content. Recognising a prevalent need, Emmanuel TV developed a system to allow volunteers to translate its content into any language – to then be subsequently published on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

The program launched in the early months of 2017. Today, more than 10,000 videos have been translated into 50 languages (and counting), created by more than 1,000 volunteers. As Prophet T.B. Joshua says, “Better is not good enough; the best is always yet to come!”

Emmanuel TV currently has YouTube channels for the following languages: 

• ENGLISH
• SPANISH
• PORTUGUESE
• FRENCH
• RUSSIAN
• ARABIC
• HEBREW
• KOREAN
• INDONESIAN
