Multi language DVD build – Gujarati

The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is a registered charity in England & Wales, and they provide information and support to lung cancer patients. Captive North produced an informative 75-minute film to help and give information to sufferers.

We were tasked with creating a multi-language DVD with subtitles in 7 languages. The subtitles enabled clearer communication of the information to the migrant population in the UK. The DVD has 13 chapter points and all the sub-menus were also localised.  This short clip shows the Gujarati subtitles on the film. 

A short history of the Gujarati language

English to Gujarati subtitling service

Gujarati is an Indo-Aryan language and it is spoken by around 46 million people in India, Bangladesh and 15 other countries where Indians have settled, including Pakistan and England.

It is a modern language that came from Sanskrit. The language began as Old Gujarati and then changed to Middle Gujarati. Finally, around the 1800s Modern Gujarati was born.

The first book was printed in 1815 and seven years later in 1822, the first newspaper, the Mumbai Samachar was printed and is still in circulation today.

Many Gujarati speakers are in Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Karachi in Pakistan. Students in the United Kingdom can take Gujarati as a GCSE exam subject.

In India there are 22 official languages and 14 regional languages It is the official language of Gujarat. Also there are 8 dialects including Parsi and Surati. The two major dialects are:

  • Hindu Gujarati – This is the standard that is taught in schools.
  • Parsi Gujarati – This is different from normal Gujarati because it has pure Persian words and numbers and also some Arabic words.

There are also some words in Gujarati from African Swahili, which came about as the Gujarati’s who migrated to Africa and added Swahili words to their language.
