Highest Quality, Expert Accuracy in Multimedia Localization Projects
The process of translation for audio, video and multimedia can be difficult because there is an additional layer to the translation process. Translation of the original text is only the first step.
The next step is to perform or re-enact the translated text. Our dedicated linguists have to re-create the tone, breath, style, pacing, and local customs of the original piece all while maintaining a high degree of accuracy. The project is further complicated because the completed text must remain in synch with the original video images. This further impacts the decisions of the translator, who may have to adjust the syntax, gender/declension, and the length of the translated product. It is a lot of balls to juggle, and they all have to come down precisely at the same time. We are expert jugglers.

Selecting the Services that are right for you
Our expert staff has years of experience in order to localize videos or audio tracks into other languages and cultures.
Some of our techniques include:
Lip-synching. The on camera actor's voice is carefully and precisely dubbed over in the target language;
Voice-over added production, a technique brought to prominence in the United Nations, in which the original audio is retained but mixed down to a lower level while the native speaker translation is heard as the dominant voice;
Multi-Language subtitling and captioning services for each and every multimedia format. Subtitles can be placed anywhere on screen, or in multiple locations in order to keep the subtitling out of the way of the on-screen action.
Multimedia Captioning: Native Speaker Translation can create fresh product from scratch or enhance already completed videos with multimedia captions in order to highlight on screen activities for learning, tutorial or other purposes.
While many clients select voice-over narration, each project should be judged on its own merits. There are many projects that would benefit from the selection of subtitles or lip-synching. We have experts to advise and consult on the best choices for your project. We have a large pool of professional voice over artists to choose from in all languages. Voice over reels and samples are always available on request to assist the client in finding the best possible candidates.
