Video content is indisputably the most engaging type of content on the internet. It is also an important and successful tool from a marketing point of view.Upto 2 minutes
According to Cisco’s recent report, a whopping 80% of traffic on the internet is generated by the video content. Here, video content means written content in the video, which is commonly called as captions. So, if you are planning to upload your videos online either for teaching others, marketing or to make it more accessible to the hearing impaired, you need to give attention to captions.
Captions have the power to boost your video. It also makes your content more effective. One way to do this is by focusing on the language to use for your video captions. English is taken as the most widely spoken language in the world, which is true to some extent, but English is treated as a business language in the world. When it comes to the general public, they prefer their native language overall. More than 60% of the total video views on the internet come from users selecting a different language than English as the website’s display language. 55% of the online content available worldwide is in English but only one-quarter of internet users speak English.
All these facts lead to the requirement of closed captioning translation services. If you want your content to reach the global audience and it should not be limited to the English speaking audience, closed captioning translation, into different native languages depending upon the target audience, is needed.
Closed captioning is the procedure of turning dialogue and sounds from a video into text. Captions are usually displayed at the bottom along with the videos. Closed captioning benefits the deaf and hard of hearing. It doesn’t only include spoken words and dialogue but also identifies different speakers, describes the sound effects from the background, denotes music and indicates the tone of voice. All these elements combined make sure that the content is easily and fully accessible to the hard of hearing audience.
The quality of the closed captions is the uttermost thing. Poor quality captions are of no use. They cannot convey the proper message being given in the original video content. This also results in a lack of accessibility for the deaf and hard of hearing population.
Captioning translation services is an art of translating a video’s language into another language by written text captions. This can either be combined with the captioning service, where the captions of the video file are created and then they are translated into other languages or independently with the closed captioning translation services, where the written captions are translated.
