Audio and video translation requests are coming in thick and fast these days. In fact, this area of Tomedes’ work has grown faster than any other in recent years.
The need for video and audio file translation
Given the increasing importance placed on video in marketing circles, it is perhaps unsurprising that video and audio file translation requests have increased so rapidly. Statistics show that:
• Video marketers can achieve a 54% increase in brand awareness
• Video marketers get 66% more qualified leads
• 97% of businesses feel that their explanatory videos help users to understand them better
Video already accounts for 70% of all internet traffic and is on track to account for 80% by 2020. As such, audio and video translation is big business.
High quality Punjabi translation
Our most recent audio translation job was from Punjabi to English. The client had been using a Punjabi video to promote her products and raise awareness of her brand. Based in Pakistan, she was already in a position to appeal to 45% of the country’s population through the use of her Punjabi video. However, she also wanted to reach out to English speakers living there (English, along with Urdu, is one of Pakistan’s official languages) and thus maximise the return on the investment she had made in creating the video in the first place. As such, she provided the audio file that she had used in the original video to Tomedes.
We stepped up straight away to work on the audio translation. Our native English speaker was fluent in Punjabi and able to deliver a high quality transcription and translation service. We always ensure that our audio and video translators’ transcription skills are every bit as good as their language skills, as this is such a key part of delivering this kind of translation.
A competitive translation price
As well as being pleased with the quality of the English transcription and translation that we delivered, the client was also delighted by the competitive translation price that Tomedes was able to provide. We purposefully keep our business model slick and lean in order that any savings can be passed on to our clients. This means we can deliver accurate translations at competitive prices, even for urgent translation jobs.
