The Subtitling Process In A Nutshell

1. Receipt of the final video

This can generally be in any format, as long as the subtitling provider has the facilities for converting the video into the format supported by their subtitling software. It is always recommended to double check with the provider whether they need to receive the video in a specific format.

2. English Template

Usually undertaken if translation into more than one language is required.

3. Translation

Sending the English template to the linguist for translation.

4. Receipt of translated subtitles

The subtitle file is imported onto the subtitling software in order to perform final quality checks and ensure that subtitles do not exceed reading speeds or run over more than two lines.

5. Quality check

If the results of the quality checks are not satisfactory, the subtitle file will be sent back to the 
translator and necessary amends will be requested.

6. Final check and send

Sending the English template to the linguist for translation.

7. Client approval

If burning-in is also required, the client needs to approve the translation. If any 
changes to the translation are requested, these need to be communicated to the subtitler and will be implemented if they do not affect readings speeds, maximum characters per line etc. If they cannot be implemented, this will be communicated to the client and alternatives will be suggested.

8. Burning-in

Once all changes have been implemented and the final version of the translation is ready, the burning-in process (if requested) will take place.

9. It's ready

Your final video is ready, and will be delivered to you via WeTransfer, Hightail, Dropbox, FTP or another file-transfer service of your choice.

Closed captions

Subtitles that can be switched on and off in multiple languages. These can easily be uploaded to your YouTube or Vimeo videos, DVD or Blu-Ray.

Caption & Graphic Editing

When localising and translating videos (whether you choose subtitling or voice over), you’ll find that often there are several elements that need to be localised. These elements can be on-screen graphics, text and/or captions.

Our expert project managers will review the video or project file and advise which elements would be best subtitled or graphically edited. If you do not have the project files, worry not; one of our expert editors will be able to re-create the graphics, captions and titles of your video.

Our expert editors work with a multitude of software: to localise graphics we use Photoshop or Illustrator; and After Effects and Final Cut Pro to create motion graphics and visual effects.

Once all elements are in the video, and the graphic elements have been created and localised, we can then rebuild the video and export it to whichever format and codec you need.

We’ll prepare your video project for any platform, including PAL, NTSC, VOD, the Internet, smartphones, game consoles, mp3 players and tablets.

With our facilities and highly skilled operators, your videos are in safe hands!

A Brief History Of Albanian

Albanian or gjuha shqipe is anIndo-European language spoken by five million people, primarily in Albania, Kosovo, the Republic of Macedonia, and Greece, but also in other areas of Southeastern Europe in which there is an Albanian population, including Montenegro and the Preševo Valleyof Serbia. Centuries-old communities speaking Albanian-based dialects can be found scattered in Greece, southern Italy, Sicily, and Ukraine. As a result of a moderndiaspora, there are also Albanian speakers elsewhere in those countries as well as in other parts of the world, including Austria,Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, theScandinavian countries, Switzerland, theUnited Kingdom, Brazil, Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Turkey.

The earliest written document that mentions the Albanian language is a late-13th-century crime report from Dubrovnik. The first audio recording of Albanian was made by Norbert Jokl on 4 April 1914 in Vienna.

The first written mention of the Albanian language was on 14 July 1285 in Dubrovnik, when a certain Matthew, witness of a crime, stated “I heard a voice shouting on the mountainside in the Albanian tongue”.

Linguistic affinities

The Albanian language is an Indo-European language in a branch by itself, sharing its branch with no other extant language. The other extant Indo-European languages in a branch by themselves areArmenian and, in some classifications, Greek. Though sharing lexical isoglosses with Greek, Balto-Slavic, and Germanic, the vocabulary of Albanian is quite distinct. Once hastily grouped with Germanic and Balto-Slavic based on the merger of Proto-Indo-European *ǒ and *ǎ into *ǎ in a supposed “northern group”, Albanian has been proven to be distinct from these two because this vowel shift is only part of a larger push chain that affected all long vowels. Albanian does share two features with Balto-Slavic languages: a lengthening of syllabic consonants before voiced obstruents and a distinct treatment of long syllables ending in a sonorant. Conservative features of Albanian include the retention of the distinction between active and middle voice, present tense, and aorist.

Albanian is considered to have evolved from an ancient Paleo-Balkan language, usually taken to be either Illyrian or Thracian, but this is debated. (See also Thraco-Illyrian and Messapian language.)

Linguistic influences

The earliest loanwords attested in Albanian come from Doric Greek, whereas the strongest influence came from Latin. The period during which Proto-Albanian and Latin interacted was protracted and drawn out roughly from the 2nd century BCE to the 5th century CE. This is borne out into roughly three layers of borrowings, the largest number belonging to the second layer. The first, with the fewest borrowings, was a time of less important interaction. The final period, probably preceding the Slavic or Germanic invasions, also has a notably smaller number of borrowings. Each layer is characterized by a different treatment of most vowels, the first layer having several that follow the evolution of Early Proto-Albanian into Albanian; later layers reflect vowel changes endemic to Late Latin and presumably Proto-Romance. Other formative changes include the syncretism of several noun case endings, especially in the plural, as well as a large-scale palatalization.

A brief period followed, between the 7th and 9th centuries CE, that was marked by heavy borrowings from Southern Slavic, some of which predate the “o-a” shift common to the modern forms of this language group. Starting in the latter 9th century CE, there was a period characterized by protracted contact with the Proto-Romanians, or Vlachs, though lexical borrowing seems to have been mostly one sided—from Albanian into Romanian. Such borrowing indicates that the Romanians migrated from an area where the majority was Slavic (i.e. Middle Bulgarian) to an area with a majority of Albanian speakers (i.e. Dardania, where Vlachs are recorded in the 10th century CE). Their movement is probably related to the expansion of the Bulgarian Empire into Albania around that time.

According to the central hypothesis of a project undertaken by the Austrian Science Fund FWF, Old Albanian had a significant influence on the development of many Balkan languages. Intensive research now aims to confirm this theory. Albanian is being researched using all available texts before a comparison with other Balkan languages is carried out. The outcome of this work will include the compilation of a lexicon providing an overview of all Old Albanian verbs.
