Dotsub Dotsub: Any Language Any Video The idea of Dotsub was born in early 2004 after viewing the film "Fahrenheit 911." Michael Smolens, Founder and CEO of Dotsub, realized that if one documentary film in English might have an impact on a very close US Presidential election, what would happen if all independent and documentary films, television programming and video from all cultures could be made available in all languages - what a powerful impact on the world that would be!

Endangered Languages Project and more

Services like Google Translate support only 100 languages, give or take. What about the thousands of other languages—spoken by people just as vulnerable to this crisis?

06/12/2020

We at Dotsub have been struggling with how we can help in this time of a confluence of crises, two worldwide and one that, while based in the United States, is being heard all over the world. As with many of the issues that affect the world today, we feel that honest, global communication can help.

To that end, we would like to offer the use of our video translation platform, VideoTMS, free of charge, to any video creator, individual or organization, that is focused on the public health, economic or social injustice crises we are facing together.

We have been working with a few organizations that have privately contacted us, but if you would like to use VideoTMS, and our cross-cultural expertise, send us an email at [email protected] or reply to our social media posts and we’ll see how we can work together to get your message heard around the world

The elections for board membership at GALA are underway and we would like you vote for Dave Bryant, Dotsub's President. As a technologist, relatively new to the language industry, he tends to see things in a different way. And what he sees are opportunities to make GALA an even bigger force in our marketplace.

See why he thinks that in more detail here. And if you are at LocWorld in San Jose, come to the Dotsub booth (#107) and have a chat.

Translators without Borders scales program to develop machine translation for marginalized languages - Translators without Borders

In this fertile week for translation, with both European Day of Languages and International Translation Day in the last few days, we would love to give a shout-out to one of the most interesting projects in the language world today.

Gamayun, from Translators without Borders, is a language equality initiative using advanced technology to improve two-way communication in marginalized languages.

This aim ties in very nicely with UNESCO's 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages, working to raise awareness of the worlds 2680 endangered languages and support teaching and revival efforts.

Hats off to these and all the other language projects around the world, working to break down barriers to communication!

A great piece from JSTOR on why translating metaphors can be such a minefield - and what metaphors are really saying about our values from culture to culture.

"Carpe Diem" doesn't actually mean "seize the day." The fact that we understand it that way suggests we are more traditional than we like to admit.

Lights, camera, caption! Why subtitles are no longer just for the hard of hearing

"...it’s not just deaf people who rely on subtitles in 2019. What was once a question of accessibility and a mainstay of foreign-language broadcasts is becoming an inescapable part of visual media."

An enormous number of people with unimpaired hearing are choosing to watch with words. Why? And is it time captions became the norm?

The Glossary of Happiness

"Lomas, who speaks some French and Mandarin, acknowledges that it can be tricky to isolate words from their cultural context. But he noted that a few of the entries in his lexicon, such as nirvāna (Sanskrit) and bon vivant (French), are already commonly used by English speakers. Perhaps some of the rest will eventually be adopted, too, filling the gaps in our vocabularies and helping us give names to newly felt emotions, or to those that are familiar but difficult to articulate."

An enjoyable read from The New Yorker on that ever-fascinating idea of 'untranslatable' words.
From May 2016.

Happy weekend, language fans!

Dotsub is unveiling its new Video Translation Management Platform at Gala 2018. Come and see Dave Bryant, the Product Owner, demonstrate the product and describe how you can use your own resources, translators and project managers to provide a new, or perhaps more efficient, service for your customers. You can even hand some of the workflow off to Dotsub if you need assistance. We feel that this will be of interest to you, whether you are an LSP, a member of a Localization team or a consumer of language services. See you on Thursday at 9:00am in Independence West.
Cool "50/50" video for encouraging powerful women around the world as part of a global advocacy events today. 50/50 gives the 10,000 year history of women + power — from setbacks and uprisings, to the bigger context of where we are today. Using her signature, cinematic-thought-essay style, Emmy-nominated filmmaker & founder of The Webby Awards Tiffany Shlain brings us on an electric ride to explore, where are we really on the greater arc of history of women and power? And what’s it going to take to get to a #5050 world — not just politics and board rooms, but truly shifting the gender balance to be better for everyone. (Dotsub is proud to provide the film's captions and translations into 6 languages) More info at: http://www.letitripple.org/films/50-50/
