A short history of the Farsi subtitling language

English to Farsi subtitling service

Farsi is known in English as Persian. It is spoken in Iran (Persia), Afghanistan and Tajikistan. There are around 110 million Farsi speakers in the world and it holds official language status in Afghanistan and Tajikistan. In the United States there are a number of Persian migrants, especially around the area of Los Angeles.

Turkik languages spoken by the people of neighbouring Central Asia, Caucasus and Antolia have also had an influence on the Farsi language.

Persian takes its name from the Capital of the Achaemenid Empire, Persis (Fars or Pars) and therefore the name Persian (Farsi or Parsi).

The Persian language was first used to write poetry in the Eastern Courts and one of the most famous Persian books is The King of Kings. It is a long poem telling of the mythical and historic past of the Persian Empire. It was written by the Farsi poet, Ferdowsi and it is the world’s longest epic poet, written by a single poet.

Persian or Farsi is known as Dari in Afghanistan and in Tajikistan it is known as Tajiki.


Farsi subtitling for RZA Teaser

When Mahmoud Reza Banki contacted us in early 2015 to request our help, we were very excited. To play a small part in helping him talk about the injustice he had suffered was an honour.

If you are not familiar with the story, Banki was arrested and prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s office, in New York City. He spent nearly two years in prison before winning his case on appeal, with all the charges against him eventually being dismissed, after another two years of court battles.

This video with Farsi Subtitling shows a clip of his captivating performance at the TED conference.  We were asked to produce Farsi subtitles for this clip of the full 15 minute speech. This has helped him communicate the injustice he suffered to other Iranians. Read more about TED at
