Captioning is the first step before translating

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

Slovak has been known as a dialect since the 10th century and as a written language since the 18th century.

Slovak is a West Slavic language spoken by about 5.6 million people in Slovakia and also in Canada, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Ukraine and the United States. Slovak is closely related to Czech, Polish and Sorbian.

Documents in Slovak began to appear in the 15th century. The literary standard of Slovak did not appear until the 19th century. Slovak literature flourished between 1918 and 1938 when the Slovak-speaking territory became part of Czechoslovakia, although not all Czechs recognized Slovak as a distinct language.

Since the disappearance of Czechoslovakia in 1993, Slovakia is an independent country and the Slovak and Czech languages have begun to drift apart, although their speakers continue to understand each other.
