The Climbers Attitude –  Health & Safety documentary

Muddy Boots Productions required a subtitling company to provide Swedish subtitling services for this production. It demonstrates how we can all learn from the ideas and techniques that mountain climbers use to stay safe.

Matinée time-coded the English audio, translated the subtitles into Swedish, synced and burnt-in the Swedish subtitles to an h264 QuickTime .mov.   We also created Dutch subtitles, French subtitles and German subtitles.


A short history of the Swedish language

English to Swedish subtitling service

Swedish is a North Germanic language, like Danish. There are around 9 million people who speak Swedish and they mainly live in Sweden and Finland. You can also find Swedish speakers in Estonia, Canada, the United States of America and Norway.

The language began with Old Norse. That changed in around 1225, when important documents were compiled using Swedish as a language with a Latin script. The text included words from Latin and Greek. During the 14th century many German people settled in Sweden and this had an influence on the language.  Modern Swedish was said to have begun with the translation of the bible in 1526. However, Swedish as it is spoken today is called Contemporary Swedish.

Contemporary Swedish began in the late 19th century and changes were made to the language as late as the 1960s, which have made it the language you hear today.

Swedish was named the official language of Sweden in 2009, before then although it was used in the education system and on official documents, it was not recognised officially. Sweden has six main dialects including one called Finland Swedish, which is spoken in Finland.
