What You Should Know About Our Localization Post-production Services

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You want to expand into a new territory to reach a new audience, so you’ve decided to translate your video or presentation into another language. You’ve decided on your target languages, but aren’t quite sure how the process works. 

In general, what most people do after deciding on the target languages is to choose a voice talent to record it. Once voice-over is chosen, and the translation is ready, the voice records your script. But the process does not end by the time the translated script is recorded. So, what’s left? Localization post-production services.

Choosing Professional Voice-over Talents: Human Voice Can Really Make a Difference

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A good-voice over is an essential prerequisite for a good video. The audio content plays the same crucial role as the visual input. Since all audiovisual components have an effect on the viewer, they are just sides of the same coin. Whereas for advertising and broadcasting a human voice is a must, on the flip side, many people think that for explanation videos, e-learning or IVR they can use a machine voice. Of course, using a machine will eventually cut the budget. However, what could the real costs of depriving a video of the naturalness of a real voice be?

Subtitles: Don’t Spoil Them!

Top 10 mistakes in subtitling, and the ways to avoid them

Subtitles: Don’t Spoil Them!

Subtitling is a form of art; by means of subtitles we can recreate and express both people’s voices and whole communicative contexts. As audiovisual products have reached a great amount of people by means of subtitles, subtitles have had a huge impact on society in the last years. What’s more, they’ve made it possible for us to access different sources of entertainment (movies, video games, and series). So, it’s very important to create them and to translate subtitles (if needed) as best as we can.
