TTC wetranslate has enjoyed a takeaway with a difference after its subsidiary, Bedford Translations, was asked to support the hit TV show Saturday Night Takeaway, featuring household stars, Ant and Dec.
The Association of Translation Companies member was contacted by ITV, who commissioned TTC to translate release forms into French and Italian to facilitate an international version of one of the show’s most popular competitions, ‘Sofa Watch’.
The feature, in which the producers place sofas in secret locations and then give visual hints on their location went global in the episode which aired on 18th March 2017, with sofas being placed in locations including Paris and Rome to mark the final day of the RBS 6 Nations 2017 competition.
And to ensure that members of the public in both France and Italy had given their consent to participate in the feature, the appropriate release forms had to be translated into the native language for each country.
Levent Yildizgoren, managing director at TTC wetranslate and ATC Council member commented: “Being big fans of the show we jumped at the chance to support them with this project. Getting involved in such a popular feature within an iconic show like Saturday Night Takeaway was a real honour.
“Without our services, the participants would not have been able to understand and sign the all-important legal documentation, and as a result would not have been able to take part in the show. Understandably, we were all very excited when we saw the episode air.”
