We’re continuously improving the new BP Video Library. Some of the proposed improvements in the near future:
- More teaser videos to be added for BP18 sessions
- Slides to be made available for select talks/sessions
- Transcriptions to be added, especially to the videos with poor sound quality (there are 4-5 of these)
- More cross-links to be added to recommend similar videos
- You’ll receive all of these improvements as part of your package
- You’ll receive a list of such improvements occasionally – once a month or so
Yes, free access!
We give away free access to the BP Video Library… in exchange for some volunteer work.
The sound quality is poor in some of the videos, so it would be great to have a transcript that we can share with everyone who purchased access to the videos.
How does it work?
You can earn some points that you can redeeem for free access to the BP Video Library.
Trancription of a 50-minute video with poor sound: you get 10 points
Trancription of a 50-minute video with good sound: you get 5 points
Trancription of a 30-minute video with good sound: you get 3 points
1-year access to the BP Video Library (60+ videos) costs 10 points
Lifetime access to the BP Video Library (with future releases) costs 19 points
Free ticket to BP19 Translation Conference Bologna (+1 year access) costs 50 points
How to get involved?
Don’t worry, even videos with poor sound can be deciphred – you just need to turn up the volume.
If you’re interested, sign up to be a volunteer (marking ‘Video transcription’), and we’ll send you a link to one of the videos that need to be transcribed first. Eventually all videos will have a transcript, so when you’re done with the first video, you can choose to do one or several more, even ones with good sound quality.
If you’re happy with a 1-year access to all existing videos (BP16+BP17+BP18), transcribing one video with poor sound is enough. If you wish to have a lifetime access including all future releases, please pick more videos to transcribe, bearing in mind the ‘income’ and ‘cost’ items shown above.
We’ll send you a link to the videos to be transcribed, and you’ll send us back a Word file with the text within a reasonable timeframe (a week?). Once you’re done, you’ll receive a unique access code to watch all titles of BP Video Library. That’s it.
This is your chance to win a free ticket
If watching BP conference videos whets your appetite for the real thing, here’s the good news: with your purchase, you’ll get a chance to win a free ticket to our next event, BP19 Translation Conference in Bologna.
How does it work?
Each purchase is entered into a draw (except for purchases of single videos) with different weight, depending on which package you buy. With the purchase of the BP18 package you’ll get a single chance, with the purchase of all videos you’ll get 2 chances, and with the purchase of all existing and future videos you’ll get 3 chances.
After each batch of 200 purchase units we’ll draw a lucky winner using Randompicker.com. For example 40 people bought the ‘BP18’ package, 50 people bought the ‘ALL’ package, while 20 people bought the full video library access. This means the winner will be picked at this point, since 1×40 + 2×50 + 3×20 = 200.
We’ll notify the winner by email, and publish the protocol of the random draw. The prize cannot be transferred to another person, and no cash equivalent will be paid. The winner receives a free ticket to BP19 or BP20 Translation Conference. (Conference only; the free ticket does not include networking dinners.)
This is a crowdfunding project
Whether you purchase the videos at the rock-bottom initial launch price of 30€ or at the regular price of 50€, your money goes into funding BP Translation Conferences. We are not affiliated with and not funded by any national or international translators’ association, any EU or national institution, nor any CAT tool vendor.
This is a crowdfunding campaign to allow us to continue delivering awesome stuff to you.
Revenue from video sales will be used to improve the content and quality of next year’s video recordings by allowing us to invite even better speakers, using more cameras during the sessions.
Part of the revenue will be used to improve the invisible back-end that’s necessary to run an event for hundreds of people: we’re working on upgrading our CRM system, and we have several other ideas to implement in order to improve your conference experience.
In a Kickstarter campaign you would pay some serious amount upfront in exchange of a promise that you may receive a product or a service several months down the line.
Here, for a small amount, you receive 20 hours of videos with valuable, actionable advice from what is probaby the most popular annual CPD event for freelance translators in Europe. (Or, for a little extra, you get a lifetime access to all existing and future videos.)
How to watch the videos
1. Buy the item
Once sales will open (early days of October), you can simply select the desired item (BP18 or ALL videos) from our BPconf shop. You can pay using wire transfer or bank card.

2. Watch on Vimeo
You’l have a full year to watch your videos on Vimeo, a website for premium video content.
Feel free to comment on the videos, to create a dialogue among translators around the world.
3. Apply what you learn
Gather some inspiration from what you learn and implement some changes in the way you conduct your freelancing business. Ultimately we all want to grow professionally and do better financially.
