Please translate! Thanks21/10/2015
We shouldn't so readily complain about it not being in English. It might be the most internationally used language but the world doesn't revolve around it. Learn the language or be content with what you have. It's harder for those that don't speak English than the other way around. Ted talks aren't exactly dubbed or subbed into Turkish most of the time.19/12/2014
