Video Subtitling or Audio Voice-Over
Video Caption Corporation is a full-service video translation company. We can provide you with either subtitling services or narrative voice-over services, from nearly any source language to nearly any target language, and we can provide your subtitles or voice-over in any format you require.
We can render your subtitles onto your master video so that they’re always visible, or provide you with subtitle files for the web, Streaming VOD, DCP or IMF packages, DVD or Blu-ray Authoring, as well as for most non-linear editing systems. Our experienced technicians can also modify your graphics to include translations and add custom design elements to your video, such as a contrasting background for your subtitles. We also offer professional DVD and Blu-ray Authoring services, from basic autoplay to complex multi-feature projects.
We can provide you with either a voice-over-only track or a voice-over track fully mixed with your existing audio. Our professional voice talent are all native speakers of the target language and can match the style, tone and pace of the native language. Our audio engineers check and adjust volume levels of the voice-over to ensure that levels are matching and appropriate to the original program audio prior to any mixing.
Localization, Not Just Translation
While most competent translators can provide a literal translation into the desired language, our translators understand that their job is not just to translate, but to ‘localize’. This requires fluency in the appropriate dialects and the use of culturally relevant idioms. Our translators are native speakers of the target language, completely fluent in the source language, and highly experienced in the art of video translation. To maintain the absolute highest quality control for our video translation services, each of our translations is reviewed by at least two translators.
Professional video translations are often paraphrased to provide the essential meaning of the dialogue within the time constraints of the on-screen video. This solves the problem of ‘expansion’, where a literal translation of the source language results in significantly more words in the target language. Whether your video translation is being used for subtitles or for voice-over, paraphrasing is essential to enable your target audience to fully understand your content.
Video Caption Corporation offers the fastest guaranteed turnarounds in the industry. Using state-of-the-art workstations, we can assign multiple editors and translators to work on the same program simultaneously, enabling us to offer fast turnarounds while maintaining the highest level of quality possible.
