Apple launches iTunes LatinoNovember 1, 2006
Here’s the article: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15514482/
Some key points include the quote: “Offering a dedicated Latino section with a broader product mix also made sense given the nation’s growing Hispanic population, of which more than half are Internet users, said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes.”
What does this mean for you? If you are in real estate, you can now make your property for sale and vacation rental videocasts searchable on iTunes in english, spanish, and portuguese. For literally just a few dollars per minute of video, you can have your video with translated narratives available on iTunes Latino.
A single video currently in English and translated into both Spanish/Portuguese will cost less than $4.40/minute per language to translate and have converted to an iPod-compatible digital format. You’ll get copies of the written transcripts in every language that we translate (including the original) as part of the price. Volume discounts can bring the price down to less than $2.85/minute. You can include your own animated logo (or have us design/produce one).
UPDATE: Perhaps it isnt clear to some that the cost per minute represents minutes of finished video and not minutes of our time.
Some examples of translated narratives that we’ve done from Spanish to English and Portuguese are available here: http://www.forsalebylocals.com/video.asp
