German subtitling – SLush Fund

In this two part documentary produced by Pictures & Words, the client shows how the fresh Aloe leaves are used in the New Charity Pot formula from this project.

Lush required subtitling services in 7 languages: Japanese, Korean, Russian, German, French and Italian.  Matinée produced a time-coded English transcript, performed the translation and condensed the translation to create foreign subtitles.  Finally the translated subtitles are synced to the video and burnt-in to MP4 and delivered as SRT documents (which is now supported by Vimeo).

Lush’s “SLush Fund” money has been helping Maasai women to build a sustainable future using Permaculture to grow Aloe Laiki on a commercial scale as well as nutritional crops to improve their diet and life expectancy. Learn more about the SLush fund here:

A short history of the German language

English to German subtitling service

German is a West Germanic language which is spoken by around 90 million speakers, who are mainly from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy. It is also recognised as a minority language in 16 other countries, including Denmark and Hungary. A significant number of people throughout the world are taught to speak German as a second language.

Many German words come from Latin and Greek and some come from French and English. The German spoken in Switzerland is called Swiss standard German. German is the most widely spoken language of the European Union and the 3rd most widely taught language in the United States and Europe.

The language began as High German in the early Middles Ages and then changed to Middle German and eventually became Early Modern High German. Standard German as we know it today began in the 19th And 20th centuries when dialects began to decrease.

One tenth of all books published in Europe are in the German language. Famous German storytellers of the 19th century were the Brothers Grimm, who produced tales such as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.
