This was a video project we handled for a corporate client that rolled out a training initiative in their US and Japan offices centered around the famous “Who Moved My Cheese” book.
The voice talent handled all three voices – Narrator, Hem and Haw. He did an excellent job of capturing the spirit of the video and retaining some of the humor that was built into the original English video. This project was a very challenging project in terms of localization and adaptation of the script. The central theme of the video – managing change – had to be preserved but yet make sense to a Japanese audience. We also had to time the audio track to the characters actions on screen. The project required tight collaboration between the translator, editor, narrator and audio engineer.
