Captioning is the first step before translating

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

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 Korean language

Until the 7th century, Korean was written in Chinese characters, which are not suitable for agglutinative languages, and so a syllabic alphabet was developed. In the 15th century an alphabet was created that is still used today, Hangul, a completely new creation that finally prevailed in the 20th century.

Korean is spoken by about 63 million people in South Korea, North Korea, China, Japan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Russia. The relationship between Korean and other languages is uncertain, although some linguists believe that it belongs to the Altaic languages. Grammatically, Korean is very similar to Japanese and about 70% of its vocabulary comes from Chinese.
