Captioning is the first step before translating

If you produced a video in English that you want to translate into Catalan, first you should get the captions and then translate into Catalan 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.

Once you are satisfied with the captions in the original language you can start translating into English or Catalan.  Captioning and subtitle translation is offered between any language combination (Spanish-English-Catalan or any additional language).

Improve interaction with your videos

Our native English-Catalan linguists will accurately translate and convey into Catalan the message intended in your videos, and shape it into a targeted and understandable message that will convince your potential Catalan-speaking leads.

On a subtitled video, the user listens to the audio in the original language (Catalan 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 Catalan language

Catalan is usually divided into two major dialects that are divided into other regional variants. The dialects are mainly characterized by differences in pronunciation and, to some extent, in vocabulary.

For the most part, all dialects are mutually intelligible. The two main dialects are Eastern Catalan (Catalonia and the Balearic Islands) and Western Catalan (Valencia). One of the phonetic differences is the pronunciation of the atonal vowels.

Standard Catalan is based on the central Catalan spoken in the Barcelona metropolitan area.
