Japanese subtitling service for Land Rover Discovery Sport promo
Matinée transcribed and time-coded the English audio, and the translation agency performed the translations following our subtitle guidelines template. Then we synced the Japanese subtitles to the video and burnt-in the subtitles using style option 1.
A short history of the Japanese language
There are many, many words in the Japanese language that come from China and some words are from Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch. This came about because of the Missionaries who came to Japan in the 14th century. English has also been readily adopted by modern day Japanese speakers.
Texts in Japanese were not produced until around the 8th century, before that writing was done using the Chinese system. The Japanese language has three language systems which are used according to social status. There is polite, respectful and humble language.
Japan also has a number of different dialects. The main divisions are between north and south and are called the Tokyo type and the Kyoto-Osaka type. Popular dialects are Nagoya Ben, Hokkaido Ben, Osaka Ben and Hakata Ben.
Many students from China and Korea attend Japanese universities and language courses and it continues to attract students in Britain and America, who want to learn Japanese as a second language.
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.Please follow this link to read our blog page: Everything There is to Know About Video Subtitling & How it is Done
