Captioning is the first step before translating

If you produced a video in English that you want to translate into Basque, first you should get the captions and then translate into Basque and into as many languages as you wish. Captions are specially useful for people with hearing disabilities, and also in noisy places (like airports and train stations) or in places where audio can be a nuisance, like hospitals. Captions are a transcription of the original audio. Some words might be changed and repetitions are deleted to get short and compact sentences.

On a subtitled video, the user listens to the audio in the original language (Basque or English, in our case) and is able to read the translations embedded at the bottom of the screen. Customers can then appreciate the narrator’s intonation and expressiveness. This is the way to get the message across with every nuance.

Some facts about the Basque language

Basque is a language with no known linguistic relatives, spoken by about 660,000 people, mainly in the Basque Country (Euskal Herria) in northern Spain and southwestern France.

An ancient form of Basque known as the Aquitanian language appeared in Roman inscriptions in Aquitaine, in southwestern France. The inscriptions consist of names of people and gods, and were written during the first and second centuries A.D.

The Basque language first appeared in Latin religious texts, the Emilian Glossesdating back to the 11th century. The first book published in Basque was a collection of poems entitled Linguae Vasconum Primitiae, published by Bernard Detchepare in 1545.

For centuries there was no standard spelling, and Basque was written with Romance spelling conventions supplemented with other signs to represent sounds not present in the Romance languages. In 1964 the Royal Academy of the Basque Language (Euskaltzaindia) published a new orthographic regulation, which met with some resistance at first, but which is now used by almost everyone.
