It was a pleasure to work with David and the team at GoLocalise. David gave me lots of help and advice, guiding me through my first subtitling project. He really knows his stuff! The experience was completely pain-free. I would not hesitate to recommend GoLocalise – outstanding work at a good price.

THE SUBTITLING
PROCESS IN A NUTSHELL

mailbox_icon_yellow
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.

uk_icon_yellow
2. ENGLISH TEMPLATE

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

edit_icon_yellow
3. TRANSLATION

Sending the English template to the linguist for translation.

page_icon_yellow
4. RECEIPT OF TRANSLATED SUBS

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.

check_big_icon_yellow
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.

search_icon_yellow
6. FINAL CHECK & SEND

After all the final checks have been completed and expectations have been met, the translated subtitle file is sent over to the client.

thumb_up_icon_yellow
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.

compact_disc_icon_yellow
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.

send_mail_icon_yellow
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.

CAPTION AND 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 Yoruba

Yoruba is a language spoken in West Africa mainly in Nigeria. The number of speakers of Yoruba is approaching 30 million. It is a pluricentric language spoken principally in Nigeria and Benin, with communities in other parts of Africa, Europe, and the Americas. A variety of the language, Lucumi, is the liturgical language of the Santería religion of the Caribbean. Yoruba is most closely related to the Itsekiri language (spoken in the Niger Delta) and to Igala (spoken in central Nigeria).

Yoruba is classified within the Edekiri languages, which together with Itsekiri and the isolate Igala form the Yoruboid group of languages within the Volta-Niger branch of the Niger-Congo family. The linguistic unity of the Niger-Congo family dates to deep prehistory, estimates ranging around 15 kya (the end of the Upper Paleolithic). In present day Nigeria, it is estimated that there are over 40 million Yoruba primary and secondary language speakers and several other millions of speakers outside Nigeria making it the most widely spoken African language outside Africa.

Literary Yoruba, also known as Standard Yoruba, Yoruba koiné, and common Yoruba, is a separate member of the dialect cluster. It is the written form of the language, the standard variety learned at school and that spoken by newsreaders on the radio. Standard Yoruba has its origin in the 1850s, when Samuel A. Crowther, the first African Bishop, published a Yoruba grammar and started his translation of the Bible. Though for a large part based on the Ọyọ and Ibadan dialects, Standard Yoruba incorporates several features from other dialects. It also has some features peculiar to itself, for example the simplified vowel harmony system, as well as foreign structures, such as calques from English, which originated in early translations of religious works.

Because the use of Standard Yoruba did not result from some deliberate linguistic policy, much controversy exists as to what constitutes ‘genuine Yoruba’, with some writers holding the opinion that the Ọyọ dialect is the most “pure” form, and others stating that there is no such thing as genuine Yoruba at all. Standard Yoruba, the variety learnt at school and used in the media, has nonetheless been a powerful consolidating factor in the emergence of a common Yoruba identity.
