Words That Don’t Click

The title should really be Words That Don’t Get Clicked. The folks over at HubSpot and Outbrain have done some extensive research on “Click-through Rate” or CTR.  Outbrain took 3.3 million paid link headlines and then analyzed the impact of a number of headline variables on CTR.  The information here is only a sampling of what HubSpot presented.

The Good:

  • Who
  • Photo
  • Template
  • Free Download

The Bad:

  • Easy
  • Free
  • How to
  • Credit
  • Cure
  • Magic
  • Simple
  • Trick

Of course, the bad words are often filtered out by anti-spam filters.  But note that your viewers and reader have their own internal spam filters as well.

Dotsub.com Statistics for January 2015

Let’s take a look at Dotsub.com’s statistics for the month of January 2015.

Languages

We will start with languages.  As usual, the top five remain steady with English, Spanish, French and Czech.  That has remained consistent month-over-month.  The rest of the top 15 languages play a sort of musical chairs amongst themselves.

When we drop the top five the rest come into focus.  German and Dutch shoved Italian down the ranks a bit from last month.

Country of Origin

For the country of origin of visitors to Dotsub.com, the U.S. is always on top, but the rest of the rankings are quite volatile.

So, removing the U.S., gives us a better look. The Netherlands and New Zealand are new since last month; while Chile and Slovenia have dropped out of the top twenty.

In January, we had a single visit from Wallis and Futuna, a French “overseas collectivity” made up of tiny and smaller islands.  These forgotten specks lie smack in the center of Polynesia/Melanesia, and make up one of the world’s least known countries.

Their land area is just 142 square km (55 square miles) with a population of approximately 12,000.  The languages spoken are Wallisian (indigenous Polynesian language) 58.9%, Futunian 30.1%, French (official) 10.8%, and other 0.2%.

According to Lonely Planet, the inhabitants, who are markedly more reserved than in most Polynesian isles, are happy to remain under the radar. This French colony has managed to keep its culture remarkably intact through serious Catholicism and a strong French presence. They have figured out how to get all the perks of colonialism without losing their soul.

Futuna is lush jungles and sparking beaches – but is completely without tourist infrastructure.  The island of Wallis is not particularly lovely by Polynesian standards, but does offer a fascinating, traditional culture, some crater lakes and extensive archaeological sites.

And there is a flag!

Language Business Update

The research company, Common Sense Advisory, who specialize in the language industry, have been tracking the mergers, acquisitions, and investments that have been particularly active in this market recently.  They have found that some venture capitalists and other investors are finally looking at language services companies as enablers for global business growth.   Investors have focused mainly on translation companies and cloud marketplaces which are rather circumscribed – until recently.  But many are realizing that this is a fragmented space, and have turned their attention on companies that assemble the pieces and provide business solutions.

Another important aspect is that language is becoming a core business issue.  For years, localization and translation efforts were isolated and seen as problems to be addressed not as opportunities for business growth.  Many multinationals are working on the development and implementation of their global content strategies and these services are entwined with core business processes.

Integrating Dotsub in to your video CMS

It’s a question we get here at Dotsub all the time. How do I integrate the captioning process into my custom CMS system? In this blog post I’ll show you how simple it is to add subtitles to your CMS workflow with a few calls to the Dotsub API.

I’ll be using cURL to call the Dotsub API and Python to listen for callbacks. This guide will use features from our ‘Extended API‘ which is only available to Enterprise accounts. If you need access to this API please contact us.

We will implement a workflow which will do the following:

  • Upload videos to Dotsub.
  • Orders captions and translations.
  • Listens for Pings from Dotsub server to download completed subtitle files.

The first step is to upload the video to Dotsub. Our team is good, but not good enough to caption your video without the file! Our ‘Media API‘ lets you upload a video file or provide us with a URL directly to a video file.

curl -u "username:password" -L -F file=@/Users/brooks/Movies/foo.mov -F title='My Video' -F description='Example' -F language='eng' -F license='a2be14e1-37d9-11dd-ae16-0800200c9a66' -F project=projectId https://dotsub.com/api/media

Note: You’ll have to replace username, password and projectId with the values for your Dotsub account.
Dotsub will reply with the UUID for your new video.

{"status":{"message":"Media created","error":false,"uuid":"f67c4500-9616-4ee6-962b-122c2aeb1e78","code":200}}

There you have it, your first video uploaded to Dotsub ready to be captioned.

Now we have to tell Dotsub what to do with this video. In this case we want captions and translations in a few languages. Let’s get it translated into French (Canada), Italian and Spanish. We do this by calling the order API:

curl -u "username:password" --form items="transcription,f67c4500-9616-4ee6-962b-122c2aeb1e78" 
--form items="translation,f67c4500-9616-4ee6-962b-122c2aeb1e78,fre_ca" --form items="translation,f67c4500-9616-4ee6-962b-122c2aeb1e78,ita" --form items="translation,f67c4500-9616-4ee6-962b-122c2aeb1e78,spa" https://dotsub.com/api/order

Note: You’ll have replace f67c4500-9616-4ee6-962b-122c2aeb1e78 with a UUID of your uploaded Dotsub video.
Dotsub will reply with all the details of your order:

}

Now we will build a Python script that listens for pings from the Dotsub API. The address Dotsub sends pings to is configured under ‘Project Settings’ in your project.

We will listen for ‘order pings‘ where their status is ‘ITEM_COMPLETED’. When we see that an item is completed we will download it using the ‘Order Download‘ API.

from BaseHTTPServer import BaseHTTPRequestHandler
from SocketServer import ThreadingMixIn
from BaseHTTPServer import HTTPServer, BaseHTTPRequestHandler
import base64
import urllib2
import cgi
#An example script that listens for HTTP order pings from the Dotsub API.

username = "username"
password = "password"

auth_header = base64.b64encode(("%s:%s" % (username, password)))

download_url = "https://dotsub.com/api/order/%s/items/%s/download"

class PostHandler(BaseHTTPRequestHandler):
    def do_POST(self):
        # Parse the form data posted
        form = cgi.FieldStorage(
            fp=self.rfile,
            headers=self.headers,
            environ={'REQUEST_METHOD': 'POST',
                     'CONTENT_TYPE': self.headers['Content-Type'],
                     })
        #There are the 4 fields the Dotsub Order Ping API posts in a callback.
        orderId = form['orderId'].value
        itemId = form['itemId'].value
        language = form['language'].value
        state = form['state'].value
        #only download an item when the item has been completed
        if state == 'ITEM_COMPLETE':
            file_url = download_url % (orderId, itemId)
            sub_req = urllib2.Request(file_url)
            sub_req.add_header('Authorization', 'Basic %s' % auth_header)
            u = urllib2.urlopen(sub_req)
            filename =  "%s_%s.srt" % (itemId, language)
            localFile = open( filename, 'w')
            localFile.write(u.read())
            localFile.close()
        self.send_response(200)

class ThreadedHTTPServer(ThreadingMixIn, HTTPServer):
    """Handle requests in a separate thread."""

if __name__ == '__main__':
    server = ThreadedHTTPServer(('', 9088), PostHandler)
    print 'Starting server, use  to stop'
    server.serve_forever()

And there you have it. In under 100 lines of code, we are submitting video files to Dotsub, ordering captions and translations, and handling the download of completed caption files.сайтповедение клиентов

Updated YouTube Synchronization and Upload

We have recently made some updates to how Dotsub integrates with YouTube. We are now using OAuth 2.0 and the latest version on YouTube APIs.

You will now be asked what channel in your YouTube account you’d like to give Dotsub access to. This will simplify the connection process for anyone using channels.

Screen Shot 2015-02-13 at 12.50.36 PM

 

After selecting the channel you will see a confirmation screen:

Screen Shot 2015-02-13 at 12.52.43 PM

 

The same push and match options are available to all users. Our enterprise clients can also set up automated subtitle updates to YouTube.

Because of this update, you will be asked again to give permission on your YouTube account next time you use the feature. You can see if you have made this update on your ‘My Account‘ page. Users who need to re-authenticate with YouTube will see this warning message:

Dotsub.com Statistics for December and 2014

We are at the end of another year and in this article we will have a look at Dotsub.com’s statistics for both the month of December and for 2014 as a whole.

We start the article with languages and then move to locations.

For both the monthly and for the whole year, we seem to have settled on a consistent top 5 which are English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Czech. Chinese is usually about 12th on the list and I expect that this will keep rising.

As we get towards the bottom of the top-twenty, things are a lot more volatile, but again that is to be expected, as a viral video in a language will certainly make that language move up those lower places very quickly. For example, Slovenian was 10th in December but was 15th overall in 2014.

 

Dec Languages 20

As usual I have removed the top 4 languages to get more granularity at the lower end.

Dec Languages 5-20

For the whole of 2014 the picture is very similar but with English being about 59% of the site visits.

2014 Languages

Removing the top three for clarity.

2014 Languages 4-20

 

Locations

There is a lot more volatility in the countries from which we are visited. The US is currently always at the top but with about 25% of the visits (compared with about 60% for English in the Languages). Spain, Brazil, Canada, UK and Australia usually make up the top 6 with a guest appearance from France every now and again. Israel features quite high in the rankings and I would guess much higher if we looked at the number of visits adjusted for the population of the country. I will leave that one until we hire our resident statistician.

Dec Countries 20

Removing the US to add clarity.

Dec Countries 2-20

Statistics for the calendar year 2014.

2014 Countries 20

and again removing the US.

 

2014 Countries 2-20

Our singletons for December features our usual mix of African and Island nations with Greenland appearing this month.

There were three locations that had one visit during the whole of 2014; Kiribati an island nation on the international date line (in the middle of the Pacific Ocean), Palau which adjoins Indonesia, The Philippines and Micronesia, and finally Western Sahara.

This last one fascinated me. I have two main sources of information for these snippets of geographical and political information.

The first is Wikipedia which says the following – Western Sahara is a disputed territory in the Maghreb region of North Africa, bordered by Morocco to the north, Algeria to the extreme northeast, Mauritania to the east and south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Its surface area amounts to 266,000 square kilometers (103,000 sq mi). It is one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world, mainly consisting of desert flatlands. The population is estimated at just over 500,000, of whom nearly 40% live in El Aaiún (also spelled Laâyoune), the largest city in Western Sahara.

The second source is the CIA, whose World Factbook is a fascinating piece of work. In this case they say  “Western Sahara is a disputed territory on the northwest coast of Africa bordered by Morocco, Mauritania, and Algeria. After Spain withdrew from its former colony of Spanish Sahara in 1976, Morocco annexed the northern two-thirds of Western Sahara and claimed the rest of the territory in 1979, following Mauritania’s withdrawal. A guerrilla war with the Polisario Front contesting Morocco’s sovereignty ended in a 1991 cease-fire and the establishment of a UN peacekeeping operation. As part of this effort, the UN sought to offer a choice to the peoples of the Western Sahara between independence (favored by the Polisario Front) or integration into Morocco. A proposed referendum never took place due to lack of agreement on voter eligibility. The 2,700 km- (1,700 mi-) long defensive sand berm, built by the Moroccans from 1980 to 1987 and running the length of the territory, continues to separate the opposing forces with Morocco controlling the roughly 80 percent of the territory west of the berm. Local demonstrations criticizing the Moroccan authorities occur regularly, and there are periodic ethnic tensions between the native Sahrawi population and Moroccan immigrants. Morocco maintains a heavy security presence in the territory.”

Perhaps the world’s next country. We shall see – although I was disappointed to see they don’t have a flag!разместить рекламуконтекстная реклама в ярославле

New York City – The Definition of Cosmopolitan

New York City residents are now able to sign up for idNYC – a government-issued identification card that is available to all residents age 14 and older. Immigration status does not matter. Demonstrating a truly open arms policy, the program applications have been translated into 25 languages available on-line.

applicationIDNY

This initiative was approved last year and is aimed at those who do not currently have a government-issued ID, including the elderly, homeless and an estimated 500,000 immigrants in the city without legal documentation.

Initially, the idNYC application process was walk-in and apply – which swiftly resulted in long lines – now you must make an appointment. The administrators of the program hadn’t anticipated on the overwhelming demand.  Thousands of New Yorkers (approximately 5,700) have enrolled in the city’s ID program since it launched on January 12, 2915, and more than 55,000 others have booked appointments.

NYC created an incentive program to entice all New Yorkers, regardless of their immigration status, to get a card. Cardholders are eligible for free memberships at 33 cultural institutions as well as other discounts. The idNYC card enables residents to access City services and City buildings, such as schools. In addition, the card can be presented as proof of identification for interacting with the police and is an accepted form of identification for opening a banking account at select financial institutions. It is also your library card.
