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

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

The linguist will listen to the Kurdish 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 Kurdish 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 Kurdish LANGUAGE

The Kurdish language is related to Persian (or Farsi), the language spoken in Iran. Kurdish, like Persian, has also borrowed many words from the Arabic language. Until 1991, it was illegal to speak Kurdish in Turkey except at home. The skillful use of language is highly valued by Kurds. Cleverness and a command of poetry are considered important skills. Population estimates for the Kurds range from 5 million to 22 million. More Kurds live in Turkey than anywhere else. They are the second-largest ethnic group in Turkey, Iraq, and Syria. They are the third-largest group (after Azerbaijanis) in Iran. Kurds also live in Lebanon, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Germany, and other places across Europe, the United States, Canada, and Australia. Although they live among them, Kurds are ethnically unrelated to Turks, Arabs, and Iranians.
