Captioning is the first step before translating

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

Translation of subtitles from French into English, or vice-versa

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

Improve interaction with your videos

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

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

French developed from the originally Celtic Vulgar Latin of Gaul, and was divided into three major dialectal groups: Northern French, Provençal in the south and Franco-Provençal in the east.

In the 13th century, the French dialect of northern Ile-de-France became the model for the entire region, and a uniform written language was developed in the early 17th century.

Canadian French has undergone certain modifications, as it is not as strongly subject to the linguistic rules of the Académie française.
