Send Your Project Viral with the Help of the UK’s Leading Papiamento Subtitling Company.

Subtitles occur on the screen as text in reaction to the characters’ speech or dialogue. They are typically used to transform media into a language that the audience can comprehend. If subtitles are not accurate to the spoken word on screen, the viewers’ understanding of the content can be negatively impacted. Precisely created subtitles, on the other hand, enhance the value of your video content. 

That’s why we have professional linguists in place to create subtitles for your film or other video content. Our team consists of both local and foreign resources to ensure that every uttered word in another language is correctly translated.

Papiamento Language Facts

Papiamento (or Papiamentu) is the most widely spoken language on the Caribbean ABC islands, having the official status on the islands of Aruba and Curaçao. The language is also recognised on Bonaire by the Dutch government. Papiamento is also spoken on the islands of Saba and Saint Eustatius. Papiamento is a creole language derived from either Portuguese or Spanish with vocabulary influences from African languages, English, Dutch, and Arawak native languages. The precise historical origins of Papiamento have not been established. Its parent language is Iberian but scholars dispute whether Papiamento is derived from Portuguese or from Spanish. The first evidence of widespread use of Papiamento in Aruba can be seen through the Curaçao official documents in the early 18th century. In the 19th century, most materials in the islands were written in Papiamento including Roman Catholic schoolbooks and hymnals. The first Papiamento newspaper was published in 1871 and titled Civilisado (The Civilizer). Civilizado (stress on /za/) is Spanish and Portuguese for “civilized” but can also be understood as having a suppressed final “r” in the word Civilizador (stress on /do/) (Civilizer). Current status > Many Papiamento speakers are multilingual and are also able to speak Dutch, English and Spanish. In the Netherlands Antilles, Papiamentu was made an official language on March 7, 2007.After its dissolution, the language’s official status was confirmed in the Caribbean Netherlands, until January 1, 2011; since then, Bonaire is the only portion of the Caribbean Netherlands in which it is recognized. Papiamento has been an official language of Aruba since May, 2003. Papiamento is also spoken in the Netherlands and on the other Dutch Caribbean islands of St. Maarten, Saba and Sint Eustatius by immigrants from Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao. Venezuelan Spanish and American English are constant influences today. Code-switching and lexical borrowing between Papiamentu, Spanish, Dutch and English among native speakers is common. This is perceived as a threat to the further development of Papiamento due to a language ideology that is committed to preserving the authentic African or Creole “feel” of Papiamento. Dialects > Papiamento has two main dialects: Papiamento in Aruba and Papiamentu in Curaçao and Bonaire. Although the Papiamentu in Curaçao and Bonaire are largely the same, there are still minor differences. Spoken (Aruban) Papiamento sounds much more Spanish. The most apparent difference between the two dialects is given away in the name difference. Whereas Curaçao and Bonaire opted for a phonology-based spelling, Aruba uses an etymology-based spelling. Many words in Aruba end with “o” while that same word ends with “u” in Curaçao and Bonaire. And even on Curaçao, the use of the u-ending is still more pronounced among the Sephardic Jewish population. Similarly, there is also a difference between the usage of “k” in Curaçao and Bonaire and “c” in Aruba. Furthermore, there is also an intonation and lexical difference between Papiamento and Papiamentu. Due to the current evolution of the language, the language is suffering a hispanization and might eventually became a creolized dialect of Spanish returning the language to a situation prior to the Dutch takeover over Spain’s government of the island
