Video Translation Services

Video Subtitles

We offer professional video subtitling services to governments, corporations, and school systems in over 80 languages. Our team makes creating a multilingual video easy by translating the audio scripts into the target languages, adding the foreign language subtitles to the localized video, and managing the production from start to finish. Once the translated subtitles have been placed into the video, our professional linguists review the localized video to ensure the highest linguistic quality.

Multilingual Video Voice-Over

Videos with native language voice-overs provide the most engaging user experience to your audience. We’re committed to finding the right talent and exceeding your expectations by matching you with a voice that’s the perfect fit. With translation expertise since 1995, we have gathered a team of over 1,000 actors. We have a detailed process for selecting our voice-over actors by first gathering audio samples. Then they are passed through a bilingual checker or producer to ensure all cues and pronunciations are correct.

Video & Film Dubbing

Compared to multilingual voice-overs, dubbing in foreign languages often involves lip sync. Lip syncing updates the recorded voice so it’s synchronized with the speaking on-screen character’s lip movements. We provide professional dubbing in a variety of languages including Spanish, German, Italian, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, and French. Our team has a large pool of talent and will find the perfect voice for your foreign language dubbing project.
