    CSR paper-thin Bluetooth Keyboard promo – Chinese subtitling

    Case Study

    CSR required Chinese video translation and Chinese subtitles for their “paper-thin Bluetooth keyboard” promotional video.

    Matinée provided audio transcription, translation, animation, video editing and subtitling services to re-version the on-screen captions into Chinese and produce the Simplified Chinese subtitles. The final video was encoded in .mp4 format and was well received by the client.

    A short history of the Chinese language

    Chinese consists of a group of related varieties or dialects, some of which are not mutually intelligible, therefore it is often described as a family of languages. All varieties of Chinese are part of the Sino-Tibetan language family.

    In Chinese there is a clear difference between the written language (wen) and the spoken language (yu). The relationship between the two is complicated, partly because the spoken varieties of the language evolved at different rates, while written Chinese has not changed as much.

    Although there are many different Chinese dialects, standard written Chinese is understood by most Chinese speakers as it is based on the standard spoken language (Mandarin).

    Written Chinese is one of the oldest writing systems in the world still in use today, originating in the late Shang Dynasty (1200-1050 BC). Its characters gradually evolved and were standardised during the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC).

    In the 20th century, written Chinese divided into two forms, known as simplified and traditional. Simplified Chinese was developed to make the characters easier to write and memorise – it is now the standard written form of the language. Traditional Chinese is still used in Hong Kong and Taiwan, as well as by calligraphy artists.

    Matinée Subtitling Montage

    This video montage features a variety of subtitling projects we have completed in a number of languages. It also shows four different ways in which the captions can be displayed on screen.

    Choosing the best way to display your subtitles on-screen will depend on your video content, and how much information you need to show in the captions area. When you send us your video, the first thing we’ll do is review the content, and advise which subtitle style we think will work best for your production.

    However, if you have another captions style you prefer, perhaps to match a template you have used before, then we’ll work with whatever you feel works best for your video.

    The Big Word

    Friendly and efficient service

    The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
