Obama translated into Farsi and Arabic

Perhaps it was in response to claimed mistranslations of previous statements. Whatever the reason, the Obama administration has posted a translation of his opening comments at a press conference (June 20, 2009) in Farsi as well as Arabic (down-loadable). (Note to White House: when you finally publish a pdf, remove the version number—“final_2” looks like a working title.)

And, as always, using current technology as much as possible, the White House also tweeted the translation in Farsi and posted a subtitled version of his opening remarks.
