Twi to English video transcription and translation project
FEB 25, 2018
By Ofer Tirosh
Spoken by around 7 million people, most of them in Ghana, Twi is a major dialect of the Akan language. Akan is part of the Kwa sub-group of the Niger-Congo family of languages. Tomedes has expert Twi translators on hand for those clients who need their documents translated into or out or Twi. In the most recent example, a client needed a video translated from Twi to English as part of the charitable work he was undertaking.
Video translation is a growing field. It requires particular expertise not just in language terms, but also in the translator’s ability to transcribe the video file and timestamp the translation. This process ensures that the translated dialogue can be mapped to the visual element of the video correctly, without the two going out of sync.
The client was keen to keep his translation cost to a minimum – after all, every penny counts when it comes to charitable enterprises. This was why he opted to use the Tomedes translation service. He had spotted a Tomedes review that highlighted our company’s particular blend of quality and value for money and was keen to know more. After chatting with our helpful team via our website’s live chat service, he was happy to go ahead and have Tomedes undertake his Twi translation.
Our professional Twi translator got to work straight away. Her previous video translation experience meant she was well placed to work efficiently on this client’s project and she had soon produced the required transcription and translation.
The client was delighted with the result. He received a high quality video translation in a timely fashion, having paid a very reasonable price – who could ask for more from their translation company?
