These are all the ones I know about.  There may be more.  I only know about the German one because the uploader let me know about it and I sent him my transcript.  It does not show up if you just search for '"Government Explained" in German' so there could be others I'm not aware of. The view counters are as of 24 January 2013.

If you would like to create a new translation, the English transcript is here, or if you send me an email (GrahamWrightUK at Gmail dot Com) I can send you a timestamped caption file so the subtitles can easily be added to the original video.

  1. Graham,
    I have edited a version of the video with - I believe - a little better pacing, and posted it to my blog. If you would like a copy of the video file, or would like me to take the edited video down and only link to your version, just let me know and I'll do so right away.
    Thanks, and nice work.

  2. I like it! A few people commented to me that it could have been a little faster edited and I definitely plan to take on board that feedback for future productions.

    It's amazing how much time you shaved off it, going from 9:28 to 7:52. Personally, I think you went a little bit too far in a few places where a longer pause is needed to really make a point sink in. I think it could be a bit fast for the first-time viewer to take it all in. Maybe around 8:20 would be the sweet spot, in retrospect.

    Good work. I've added a link to it in this post.

  3. I work as an editor for a primetime show on network TV... you'd be amazed how little tolerance an average viewer has for a pause! haha But watching it again today, I can see how there's room for a second here and a half second there.
    Thanks again...

  4. The 'Czech' translation is actually Slovak :)
