Dear Reader,

We're working on a translating the captions of some of our videos into different languages.

The first video is the Origami Kusudama Flower:

Taking part in this crowd-sourced effort will help spread the joy of origami around the world.

  1. After you translate it, send it to us as a Personal Message (copy and paste) on Youtube or Facebook (see links below).
  2. Let us know what language and origami model it is.
  3. Leave the english text in place (just write the translated version below each line)
  4. Leave the time codes in place
  5. Don’t use machine (automatic) translators. Translate only into a language in which you’re 100% fluent.

Thanks for your help translating the video!
