Chaplin at Web 2.0 - The Kid with intertitles in many languages! (well, just 12)
NOTE: The movie was originally hosted at Google Video (until august 2012) with intertitles in 26 languages, now in YouTube it has 12 (+ the original english).
Photo gently courtesy of Mr. Philippe Chappuis. Statue of Charlie Chaplin made by John Doubleday (1982) at Square Charlie Chaplin, in Vevey, Switzerland, near the home where Chaplin lived his last 25 years with his wife Mrs. Oona O'Neill, daughter of the writer Eugene O'Neill. Note that the statue has the Google hat of Mr. Chappuis, who participated in this project.
The famous photo of Charlie Chaplin's 1921 movie "The Kid", with the kid that was his partner in the movie. Copyright has expired and the photo is in the public domain. Taken from Wikipedia. This media file is in the public domain in the United States. This applies to U.S. works where the copyright has expired, often because its first publication occurred prior to January 1, 1923. This image might not be in the public domain outside of the United States (this especially applies in Canada, China -not Macao or Taiwan-, Germany or Switzerland).
This project shows how the power of the web 2.0 can be used by us –the ordinary people- to do nice and productive things together. It follows, in some sense, the altruists’ lines that Chaplin referred in the last scene of his movie “The great dictator”. I hope that will be repeated by other people –and by me- to improve great public domain films hosted at

Este proyecto muestra como el poder de la web 2.0 puede ser utilizado por nosotros –la gente común- para hacer juntos cosas interesantes y productivas. Sigue, en cierto sentido, los lineamientos altruistas que Chaplin refirió en la secuencia final de su película “El gran dictador”. Espero que esto sea repetido por otros internautas –y por mí mismo- para mejorar grandes films de dominio público alojados en
Instituto Cervantes, Opentrad (beta), Translendium, Google translator (beta), InterTran translator, Lingvo.
