Quality Translations in Any Language
Adelphi aims to provide a full service to our customers. The translation itself is just a part of this service. Our experienced team will work with you to fully understand your project in order to effectively manage the workflow from concept to completion. Our ultimate aim is to facilitate your communication objectives. Our in-house translation project managers can provide the quality translations that you are looking for, it also means that if your translation is for voice-overs or subtitling then we can tailor the translations for that process. 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.
Adelphi can translate over 120 different languages. We also specialise in translating rare and difficult languages, which means we can provide one point of contact for any language enquiry.
Quality and timing is paramount to the translation service that Adelphi provides. To this end we have put in place a system to assure these factors are met. Using the latest Translation Memory software allows our clients to reap the benefits of quicker, cheaper and more consistent translations.
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-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.
The style of translation is important for voice-overs and should reflect the genre, e.g. if it is for marketing, public information, drama etc. The audio translator will have a copy of the video as reference and is instructed to translate using a style to match the source material. All our translators have signed an NDA (none disclosure agreement).
