Professional audio editing:
At Adelphi, we offer professionally edited audio as standard for all of our voice over projects. But what exactly does this mean? Go here and we will briefly look at what we do with the audio before we deliver it to our clients, turning the ‘raw’ unedited audio data into professional, clean-sounding voice-over files. Also included in our quality checks are, listening to the audio to check if errors have been made, pronunciation is correct, all the segments have been recorded, the timings are right, files are correctly split and named; we take out overly long pauses and normalise the levels so all the audio is of the same volume.
A major international TV streaming service came to us to localise their explainer videos before rolling them out across the world. We produced over 1,000 words of informative, friendly voice-over in US English, Spanish, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, Japanese, and Thai.

Make sure the script you send is the final version before we start recording, any changes afterwards can be expensive to rectify.

Japanese voice-over translation
As part of our Japanese voice-over service, Adelphi provides a full translation service to our customers. Our experienced in-house translation 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. Adelphi ensures that all our translators are professional and work only into their mother tongue. This ensures accuracy.
Voice-over translations compared to standard translations
Voice-over translations are a more specialist area when compared to standard translations. A regular Japanese translator will not have the experience or knowledge to create translations suitable for voice-overs. The voice-over translations must be restricted to fit the same time-slot as the original and should not be longer. 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.
Style of translation is important for voice-over translation and must reflect the genre, such as if it is for marketing, public information, drama etc. The translator will receive a copy of the video as a reference and be instructed to translate in a style matching the source material. All our translators have signed an NDA (non-disclosure agreement).
We also provide transcription services in any language, 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. For voice-overs and depending on the language, we sometimes have to edit the English to make a more concise version of the original, this is because the spoken version of many languages is much longer than the English and would not fit in the allocated time-slot. Of course, the edited English is approved by the client before translation into Japanese.
