Professional Bengali translation by Tomedes

Video translation has really hit its stride now, with sustained demand for this skilled area of translation work covering a wide range of languages. A recent Tomedes client, for example, needed video translation services for more than 20 different video files. He needed each file transcribed and translated from his native Bengali into English.
Tomedes has a network of professional translators stationed around the world, including Bengali translation experts. Bengali has roughly 230 million speakers around the world, most of them located in the east Indian region of Bengal and in Bangladesh. It is one of the most spoken languages in the world, with a variety of different dialects in use. Interestingly, the written language has two forms: ‘Shadhubhasha’ (or chaste language) and ‘Choltibhasha’ (running language). The latter is the standard form of written (and spoken) Bengali.
For this client’s large video translation job, we turned to one of our leading Bengali translators, whose experience encompassed multiple video and audio file translations. He got to work at once, meticulously transcribing and translating each video in turn. The completed translations were then checked by our quality assurance team (as is standard practice, to ensure that Tomedes clients receive only the very best translations), before being sent to the client.
He was delighted with the result – 20 accurate Bengali to English translations complete with timestamping, ready for him to use as the basis of the English language voiceovers that he planned to record as the next stage of his project. Another very happy Tomedes customer!
