Captioning is the first step before translating

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

Croatian is a South Slavic language spoken mainly in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Serbian province of Vojvodina. A total of about five and a half million people speak it.

The oldest texts in Croatian date from the 11th century and were written in the Glagolitic script, mainly in Croatia. The oldest text in the Latin alphabet dates from 1345. The Glagolitic alphabet was eventually replaced by the Latin alphabet in Croatia.

Until the mid-nineteenth century there was no standard written form of Croatian, but there was a lot of literature in different dialects.

The Croatian Latin alphabet was invented in 1835 by Ljudevit Gaj, a Croatian linguist, based on the Czech and Polish alphabets. Today, this alphabet is used in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia. Variations of this alphabet are used for Slovenian and Macedonian.

Croatian contains many words of Latin and German origin. Many Croatian neologisms are created by combining and adapting existing words.
Croatian is closely related to and is mutually intelligible with Serbian, Bosnian and Montenegrin.
