This year we will track talks in a dedicated task management software. The account management is intended to be linked to the RC3 account management (SSO). If you do not have a ticket for rC3 but want to help nevertheless please see the section at the bottom of this page.


If you have a rC3 World Account please use the oauth button below the login form. Do not enter your rC3 credentials here. You have to be logged in in the rc3 world beforehand otherwise you'll get a not found error.

A few Safari Users reported they got a invalid OAuth2 state parameter error. Switching to another browser was the easiest solution in this case.


You can find the talks in the rC3 project.

In our rC3 project each talk is in the column of its respective phase throughout our subtitling process. You can search and filter them as you like, under the bookmark icon are a few predefined ones, e.g., to filter by a specific language or a specific event.

Shift Beginning

Shift End or Finished a Talk

When your shift ends or you completed a task please make sure to unassign yourself by “Return task”, so it can be further processed. Furthermore please make sure to update the c3subtitles page accordingly, e.g. enter the timestamp or mark the phase as finished.
