This is Cummins –  Portuguese subtitling

Cummins required a subtitling company to assist them with Portuguese subtitling services for the “This is Cummins” promo video.  Matinée transcribed the English audio and produced the Portuguese subtitles.  The Portuguese subtitles were synced to the video and burnt-in to a .mov video file.  We also produced: Turkish subtitles, Brazilian Portuguese subtitles, Arabic subtitles and French subtitles.

A short history of the Portuguese language

English to Portuguese subtitling service

Portuguese is a romance language like French and Spanish. It is the official language of Portugal, Brazil, Cape Verde, Sao Tome, Principe, Guinea-Bissau, Angola and Mozambique.

Three countries have Portuguese as a co-official language and these are East Timor, Macau and Equatorial New Guinea. You’ll also hear the language in Diu in India, on the east coast of Sri Lanka and in Malacca in Malaysia.

The language originated in the Kingdom of Galicia and is spoken by around 250 million speakers.  San Paulo in Brazil has the greatest number of Portuguese speakers in the world. In the city you can visit the Museum of the Portuguese Language which was opened in 2006.

The Portuguese language became official in 1290, when King Denis opened the first Portuguese university and changed the language name from ‘Common Language’ to Portuguese. During the 15th and 16th centuries Portugal colonised many countries and the language was used in Asia and Africa.

European Portuguese has around ten dialects and in Brazil there are sixteen. The differences are mainly in accent and vocabulary. The vocabulary of European Portuguese contains Arabic words, which came about as a result of the Moorish conquest of Iberia.
