#TEDwiki / TED speakers

The start position in terms of number of articles about TED speakers per tracked language is here. For the full list of articles per tracked language, click on the languages link. See below the table for status reports during the challenge. Note that you can add an article in any language that you create/improve to the sign up table - this is a pre-determined list based on the TED metadata, with languages added somewhat haphazardly. TED supports subtitles in over 70 languages, and you can have a Wikipedia language added to the table by placing a request on the discussion page.
