Origins of the Welsh language and accent
The Romans who came to Britain spoke Latin and by 70 AD most of Britain was speaking Latin, which was the official language, although Brittonic was still spoken at home. However, it is thanks to the Romans that we have written history because the Brittonic people did not put things down in writing and relied upon oral history instead.
Latin words began to influence the Brittonic language, especially for the names of objects which before the Romans had not existed, such as Bridge.
Between 400 and 700 AD Brittonic split into four different languages and these became Cornish, Cumbric, Breton and Welsh. Around 785 the construction of Offa’s Dyke began and this created the border between England and Wales. The Welsh were described as Cymry, meaning fellow countryman.
In the 9th century, the alphabet was adapted from Latin to Welsh. The Norman invaders however brought back English speakers to Wales, they began to use English for official purposes and this went through the centuries, including the Victorian period, when the use of the Welsh language was discouraged and only English was taught in Welsh schools.
By the time of the First World War, it was said that only just below half of the population spoke Welsh. However, there were people who wanted to keep the language alive and in 1962 The Welsh Language Society was formed. This group campaigned for a number of causes, one of which was the creation of bilingual road signs, which you can see today. In 1982 the Welsh got their own television channel, S4C. Today Welsh is taught in all Primary and Secondary Schools.

Fantastic to work with
The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

I use Matinee a lot for subtitling projects

Friendly and efficient service
The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
