Working in cooperation with Translation Agencies

Even though we are a full-service translation agency we often provide other translation agencies with audiovisual translations and video localization and are also happy to work with their own translations. Although we often have to give advice on the length of translations, fonts for subtitling etc as many translation agencies do not understand the difference between standard translations and audiovisual translations. This enables these translation agencies to offer video translations including the voice-over and subtitling to their own clients.

Subtitling translations

Adelphi produces SRT files in any language, including making transcriptions of the source video before they are translated to create SRT files for subtitling. Some clients want only the SRT file so that they can produce their own subtitles while others want us to provide the finished video for them.

Voice-over translations

These are a more specialist area when compared to standard translations. Voice-over translations must be restricted to fit the same time-slot as the original otherwise the voice-artist may have to speak faster to make it fit. If the voice-over is going to be used over a video of a different language, then the voice-over translation may include time-codes to help the voice-artist and engineer sync up the voice to the video.

On-screen Text and Motion Graphics

On-screen text localization is required when making either subtitles or voice-overs in a language other than the original on the video. There are many instances of text appearing on videos, some of these are part of the editing package and these can be changed by a trained engineer, however, some on-screen text is placed as graphics or part of the actual footage. Depending on the complexity and how the original text was produced we may require the data package it was made in.
