United Sounds Still Needs You!
Welsh, Yiddish and Persian/Farsi speakers – halp! We need your linguistic skillz!
United Sounds is still at it: looking for your help in sourcing as many audio recordings as we can of the 370 translations of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The UDHR is a central document detailing the human rights that affect every person on the planet, and we think that’s an important message to shine a spotlight on using the sounds of languages from around the world.
Can you, or someone you know, help us out? Take 15 minutes and head to the project dropbox where the step-by-step instructions to participate are outlined:

So, let's seize that spirit and enthusiastically head to the United Sounds dropbox to collectively contribute our sounds to something great: an archive that makes a statement on the universality of human rights. The steps to participate are here:
Big cheers and polite golf claps to those who have already participated! From the last batch of languages we received great submissions from SoundClouders in Estonian (from ‘haldjas’), Serbian (from ‘stereochemistrymusic’) and Hindi (from ‘shardul6’).
