Happy New Year from Dotsub
As we close 2012, I want to thank our readers and customers for following Dotsub this year, and for the great language powered uses of Dotsub that you allowed us to help you achieve.
The rich choices that you took, and the creative solutions that powered your video communications were always thrilling, often surprising, and definitely a privilege for us.
To date, the Dotsub platform has “language powered” more than 110,000 videos with more than 20,000,000 lines of video captions and more than 16,000,000 lines of video translations.
This year we witnessed 10,000s of passionate fans translating videos in scores of languages, or via professional captioning and video translation provided by us; on our website, or via the integrations with online video platforms like YouTube, Brightcove, Ooyala, Kaltura, LongTailVideo and others; on the web, via mobile phones, or downloadable videos with selectable subtitle tracks or with languages built in…
Together we reached over 100,000,000 video viewers in their native languages.
On sites like Adobe.TV, TED, WOBI, and Videum – Health in any Language… In healthcare, learning, corporate training, communication, for video documentaries, real estate, promotion, marketing, non-profits, and many, many other fields… We have worked together to further your goals, as informed by the mission of Dotsub, of overcoming the language barrier to cross-cultural communication in video.
We want to wish you a happy 2013, full of beautiful challenges, and successes!
PS: The language-powered video below, created by Italian filmmaker Giacomo Sardelli, and picked up by NASA, expresses very well the sentiments of opportunity and wonder that we want to share.
[Further Up Yonder – A Message from ISS to All Humankind]
♫ [music] ♫
“As the the most forward-deployed citizens of the planet at this moment and the first expedition crew aboard Space Station Alpha, we are well-started on our journey of exploration and discovery, building a foothold for men and women who will voyage and live in places far away from our home planet.
We are opening the gateway to space for all humankind. As we orbit the earth every 90 minutes, we see a world without borders and send our wish that all nations will work toward peace and harmony. Our world has changed dramatically. Still the ISS is physical proof that nations can work together in harmony and should promote peace and global cooperation and reach goals that are simply out of this world.
On this night, we’d like to share with all our good fortune on this space station, our wonder and excitement to gaze on the Earth’s splendor, and our strong sense that the human spirit to do, to explore, to discover has no limit. Times are hard all over the world, but this is a time when we can all think about being together and treasuring our planet, and we’ve got a pretty nice view of it up here.”
