Professional Direct Bengali Transcription and Translation Service from Audio or Video Files

We can provide a direct translation from any Bengali audio or video file into English.

The linguist will listen to the Bengali speech on the audio or video file and will provide a direct written translation into English much in the same way as an interpreter would interpret what he or she hears verbally.

Our Bengali translators and transcriptionists can include speaker labels and time codes, depending on your requirement.

The quality and speed of output will depend on the clarity of the source media file, so if you’re starting from scratch, please obtain the best quality recording possible.

Bengali is an eastern Indo-Aryan language with around 300 million speakers mainly in Bangladesh, and in the Indian states of West Bengal, Tripura and South Assam. Bengali is the national and official language of Bangladesh, and one of the official languages in India. It is also spoken in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. There are some differences in pronunciation and vocabulary between the Bengali of Bangladesh and the Bengali spoken in India. The Bengali alphabet is derived from the Brahmi alphabet. It is also closely related to the Devanagari alphabet, from which it started to diverge in the 11th Century AD. The current printed form of Bengali alphabet first appeared in 1778 when Charles Wilkins developed printing in Bengali. A few archaic letters were modernised during the 19th century.

Bengali is often known as the second most beautiful language in the world after French.


সর্বজনগ্রাহ্যতা : প্রবাদে সাধারণত এমন অভিজ্ঞতাই বাণীরূপ পায় যা সচরাচর সাধারণ মানুষের অভিজ্ঞতার জগৎ থেকে বাইরে নয়। প্রবাদের ভাবসত্যের জগৎ আমাদের সাধারণ অভিজ্ঞতার পরিম-লের মধ্যে থাকে বলে তা সর্বজনগ্রাহ্য হয়ে ওঠে।
