Thai subtitling for the United Nations – Adelphi Studio

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, through the United Nations office at Vienna, asked Adelphi to add captions to their public service announcement (PSA) about wildlife crime.

The PSA video called “Serious About Wildlife Crime”, was subtitled by Adelphi in Simplified Chinese, Lao, Arabic, Spanish, French and Russian. We have just subtitled Thai and Vietnamese for them.

The videos were placed online and pitched to broadcasters in order to spread the message about the prevention of wildlife crime and trafficking.

Dutch Subtitling Translation Service offering both open and closed caption Dutch subtitles. Adelphi are a specialist media localization agency and have a full time translation department sourcing translations in over 120 languages. As well as Subtitling we also produce voice-overs in over 70 languages and typesetting of printed materials in over 120 languages.

Because we control all of the aspects of the subtitle localization from the transcription to translation to the finished subtitled Dutch video, we can offer quality control through out the process as well as a high degree of confidentiality.

All our Dutch subtitles are produced in-house and never outsource any of the work. Our media department works on a wide range of specifications and can take your original video and produce a working copy with Dutch subtitles ready to publish on the Internet, film, TV, or on DVD.

These subtitles were ‘burnt on’ to the video, which is also called open captions, and because of the nature of the video in this case we used a transparent band behind the text for best readability. There are other styles of subtitles we can produce. We can advise you on the best option for your video and even produce samples for you to choose from. We also offer samples of fonts to choose from if required.

Adelphi’s clients include Barclays Bank, the International Olympic Committee, Cisco, Raison, Amnesty International, UNICEF, Vidal Sassoon, Jaguar and many other companies and their agencies.

Dutch On-Screen Text localization

On-screen text can also be localized into Dutch and our technical engineers can convert any on-screen text in the required style. Depending on the complexity and how the original text was produced we may require the data package it was made in.

Transcription Services

We also offer a transcription service, to provide time-coded scripts for translation. The length of many languages will expand when compared to original English and care must be taken in the translation to keep the true meaning of the English, while staying within the time frame allowed. We sometimes have to edit the English to make a more concise version of the original, this is because the written version of many languages is much longer than the English and would not fit in the allocated time-slot.
