Did videos and clips overtake written mediums in this current age?
Yes, the visuals have already become more common than audio or written mediums. We no longer able to read newspapers and novels like our predecessors did, but it is hard nowadays –at least in our post-industrial community- to avoid reading written texts on screens – such as translated dialogues, texts, instructions, and guides. Some resort to watching television to learn a language or use it in improving their linguistic skills instead of linguistic translation or even to provide better assistance for the deaf, mute, and hearing impaired people. Ejada Translation Services provide screen and video translation to relieve these concerns.
