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

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

The linguist will listen to the Estonian 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 Estonian 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.

WHILE YOU’RE HERE... SOME QUITE INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE Estonian LANGUAGE

Estonian is a Finnic language closely related to Finnish, and spoken by about 1.1 million people in Estonia. The main difference between these two languages is that Finnish has many loanwords from Swedish, while Estonian contains many words of German origin, plus some from Russian, Latin, Greek and English. There is considerable mutual intelligibility between Estonian and Finnish.

Estonian has two groups of dialects: northern and southern. The northern dialects are associated with the city of Tallinn, and the southern ones with Tartu. Standard Estonian is based on the northern dialects. The southern dialects are sometimes considered separate languages.

Estonian was the state language of Estonia from 1919 to 1945. During the Soviet period Estonian was one of the the official languages, along with Russian, and most Estonians became bilingual in Estonian and Russian. Non-Estonians had to learn Estonian in school, however many considered learning the language unnecessary. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989 Estonian became the state language once more, and Russian was discouraged.
