Translation Buzz – January 31
Beauty Found in Translation
It is a rare occasion when the world of language translations is dazzled by the beauty of translations. This time it comes in the form of Disney’s animated movie Frozen. The movie was released in 25 different languages with all of the dialogue lip-synced — a translation and production feat by itself when you consider language variations.
Disney just released a YouTube video with the movie’s 4-minute title song “Let It Go” sung in all 25 languages in succession. Notice how all of the languages sound as though they are sung by the same singer and are perfectly lip-synced.
This video is beautifully done and a joy to watch. Enjoy it!
Will OneHourTranslation become the largest translation company in the world? Really?
OneHourTranslation has big ambitions to “become the largest professional translation service in the world,” according to Israel’s Business Arena. To this end Fortissimo Capital has acquired one-third of OneHourTranslation for $10 million. (It is unclear whether this is Euros, Dollars or Shekels). This company has high ambitions and has grown exponentially in a short amount of time, but in our opinion its becoming the largest translation company in the world is a stretch.
