Malaysian subtitles for Flint Group eLearning videos

Flint Group’s translation agency required a Malaysian subtitling service. As a leading subtitling company, Matinée Multilingual was selected as their partner.

First we transcribed and time coded the 50 minutes of English audio and on-screen text, contained in the 21 eLearning videos. Then the translation agency performed the translations following Matinée template guidelines. The Malaysian subtitles were synced to the videos, and burnt-in. The on-screen text translations were also edited into the video. The final videos were encoded in MP4 format.

A short history of the Malay language

English to Malaysian subtitling service

The Malay language is Austronesian like the languages of the Philippines and Madagascar. It is spoken by around 270 million people in Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia and Singapore, where it holds official status. It can also be heard in Sumatra and Borneo.

The first signs of the Old Malay language come from a stone carving dating back to the 7th century. The script was greatly influenced by Sanskrit. The Malay language began to spread during the 14th and 15th centuries, as the tradesman on the Malay Peninsular began to use it. The language was known as classic Malay and contained Arabic, Tamil, Hindi and Sanskrit words.

Written Malay still uses Latin script called Rumi and Arabic script called Jawi, which is taught in schools. Rumi is used in Brunei and Malaysia for official documents.

There are a large number of Malay dialects and they are mainly divided into eastern and western groups and then sub-divided. Western group dialects can be found in Sumatra and Borneo. Eastern dialects include Maluku and Papua. The dialects are fairly distinct from one another and use different words for the same meaning.
