Graphics Localization

Adelphi localizes graphics in over 100 languages for printed materials, videos, and audiovisual materials. Our in-house typesetting department and media localization team can handle any type of graphics localization for your print, video or e-learning project.

Print graphics localization

Print graphics can be made in a number of applications, the most common are Illustrator and Photoshop, but other applications can be used such as PowerPoint, Coral Draw etc. These graphics are then imported into the master application, the most popular are InDesign and QuarkXpress. One of the problems we encounter is when a client makes complex graphics with text and then send us exports of those in Jpeg, tiff or even pdf formats so we cannot get at the text to localize. We always recommend that the text should be implemented in the master program and not into the graphics themselves.

Our foreign language typesetting team has over thirty years of experience in translating and typesetting printed materials into over 120 languages. All our foreign language typesetting is handled in-house and carried out by our own experienced typesetters. We typeset all kinds of documents including corporate brochures, packaging, business cards, posters, and manuals, producing print-ready PDFs from most industry standard applications.

Example project

One of the largest projects we have worked on was over 2000 signs in Chinese for a new theme park for Disney. All the signs were produced in Illustrator and had to follow precise guidelines laid down by Disney.

On-screen text and graphics localization
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.

Video Localization Services

Adelphi Studio offers a world-leading Video Localization Service providing translations, voice-overs and subtitling, plus any on-screen text and motion graphics localization into over 100 languages.

Adelphi is a video localization agency that aims to provide a full localization service to our customers. We have a dedicated studio with engineers, editors and producers who have years of experience producing voice-over and subtitling projects. We also have an in-house technical support who localize graphics and any on-screen text into your target language. Our in-house translation department is staffed by experienced project managers who have been working on all kinds of audio and video translations and who know the difference between traditional translations and translations for audio projects.

Apart from the actual voice artists and translators who can be anywhere in the world, Adelphi has its own in-house setup. We have our own translation department, audio studio, engineers, project managers, a design team who look after the localization of graphics and printed materials etc. keeping as much of your project in-house. This keeps costs down and offers a great level of confidentiality.

Translations and Transcriptions

For 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 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.

Take a look at our audio translation and audio transcription pages to find out more.

As we have many years experience providing translations for media projects we understand the process to get the most out of your project, unlike other translation agencies who will have little understanding of translating for voice-overs and subtitling projects and often provide translations that are too long, not timed properly or that use fonts unsuitable for the software to be used.

SRT subtitle translations

Adelphi produce 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.

In SRT subtitling translation, our audiovisual translator (srt file translator) would create translated subtitles in the target language directly from the source video. Our subtitle translator would then create SRT files that are used to produce burnt-on subtitles.

Voice Artists: How to Care for Your Voice (Part 2)

There are many variables that can cause issues with your voice including seasonal atmosphere changes, general body hydration, stress, tiredness… the list goes on! In this blog, we will look at the general day to day care tips all voice artists should know. It is important to prevent problems by knowing your body, your voice, your limits, and how to take care of yourself.

Hydration

Dehydration can be caused by many factors; not enough water, smoking (first or second hand), caffeine, alcohol and salt can all cause your body to lose water so you should try to avoid these as much as possible. Staying hydrated is very important for your vocal cords as they are surrounded by a mucous membrane, which must stay wet and fluid for the cords to work properly. A lack of hydration causes this membrane to thicken, which makes your throat feel clogged up.

Lemon flavoured water is often stated as being a favoured drink to help bind the mucous and flush it out if there is an excess of it in your body. On the day of the voice-over recording session try to drink as much water as possible, and during the session drink Room Temperature water as cold water can cause your vocal cords to constrict and tense up.

Dairy products are a bad choice for any voice professionals as they can cause the mucus to thicken, coating the vocal cords and affecting the smooth operation of the larynx. Food such as cheese, milk, yoghurt and ice-cream should all be consumed sparingly when using your voice professionally.

Sleep

Before a voice-over recording session you should try to get a good night sleep. You will find that the lack of energy from a bad sleep causes your vocal muscles to tire quickly and be less flexible than normal. This lack of energy can then lead you to over compensate by forcing the sounds out which creates tension and ultimately pain and hoarseness in your larynx.

No shouting!

You should also always try to avoid straining your voice by not shouting. Excess strain can eventually cause nodes on your vocal cords, which limits your range, flexibility and tone.

Finally, before a voice-over recording session always be sure to warm up! See part 1 of this ‘How to Care for Your Voice’ post for some tips on warm up techniques.

Explainer video localization

Explainer video localization in over 100 languages

Explainer videos are becoming a vital tool in how companies are portraying their services to customers and consumers alike. The fast, simple and efficient visual medium is replacing paragraphs of text all over the web. But is your explainer video really being used to its full potential?

Companies are spending thousands on producing explainer videos to advertise in the same market pool every year, without considering the possible consumers or even investors overseas. Unlike traditional marketing videos, Explainer videos cannot be simply subtitled due to the excessive on-screen visuals, meaning important graphics could be covered up with the use of subtitles. But what if there was a way to translate your explainer video directly in the project files?

We can translate not just the text from your Articulate Storyline project itself but also localize all of the button and slider content too, we also add voice-overs and subtitles to any embedded videos using translated scripts and voice talents we can provide.

All the work is carried out in-house by our own experts and we never farm out the work to freelancers or other companies.
