Subtitling montage in 4 languages for Sony
Matinée transcribed the English audio, and then produced the French, Italian, German and Spanish subtitles. Once approved, the subtitles were synced to the video and delivered as MP4 files.
A short history of the Swahili language
You will also hear Swahili spoken in Burundi, Rwanda, Malawi, Mozambique and Northern Zambia. The word for Swahili is Kiswahili, which means coastal language.
It uses the Latin script for writing and the first ever written documents in Swahili are said to have been written in 1711. The first epic poem dates back to 1728. Words in the Swahili language come from Arabic, German, Portuguese, French and English.
Swahili is pronounced the way it is read, it is therefore much easier to learn than some other languages, which have a different pronunciation to the spelling of the word, like English. Arabic and Bantu are two languages which are close to Swahili because of the concentration of Arab words. Disney fans will remember the film the Lion King, which contained the famous Swahili quote Hakuna Matata, which means ‘No Worries’.
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
