Adelphi are experts in on-screen text localization, recreating the original effects and animations used in your video in over 120 languages.

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.

Adelphi has offices in the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States of America (USA).

On-screen text localization – graphics files

Adelphi studio has its own in-house graphics department that can localise text in most graphics and in over 120 languages. The problems occur when text has been placed over a complex background and the original layered files are not available. This makes the removal of the original text difficult and time-consuming and in some cases impossible. Ideally we would need the original artwork in these cases, otherwise, the end result might not be up to the standard required.

Adelphi has Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign as well as a number of software packages used by most designers, enabling to change most graphics, even with right to left languages such as Arabic etc.
