The video Overeaters Anonymous: Many Symptoms, the OA Solution (Public Service Announcement) – preparing a localized version of the video to be used in your own country.

  1. First, make sure you have completed and received WSO (world service office) approval to use the video and translate it. The forms are available online, at the WSO website
  2. Download the original video from youtube (this can be done with software that allow you to save you tube videos, such as this one – http://download.cnet.com/Free-YouTube-Downloader/3000-2071_4-75219434.html)
  3. Once you have the video, prepare a simple text file (.txt file) that contains the actual text that is spoken and written in the video. This should be in your local language. Below is the exact text said in the video. In brackets, text that appears as text and not spoken (the number in the beginning of each line is the correct time it appears in the video)                                                                                                                                          00:04 Compulsive eating affects millions of people world-wide                                        [I go on binges – – for no apparent reason]                                                                       00:11 These are just some of the symptoms
