With a database of over 200 voice talents in 50+ languages, we could offer a wide range of services including transcriptions, script translation, voice-over recording, video subtitling, audio engineering, video editing, post-production and DVD localization.
Transcription is the first and crucial step of multimedia localization. Our transcriptionists qualify as experts in any terminology of the targeted industry and could meet the highest levels of quality assurance.
Based on industry production standards guidelines published by Office Business Center Association International (www.obcai.org), the general rule is that it takes one to two hours to transcribe 15 minutes of recorded audio. Of course, a lot will depend on the quality of the voices, technical content, accents, and if the video is to be transcribed verbatim vs. paraphrased. A straightforward, one-voice video will take much less time than a highly technical focus group with poor audio and accented speakers.
Moving to the translation part, to ensure top quality, we will assign not only one translator, but at least 3 linguists to the project: we translate from scratch by a linguist, then pass the translated documents to another editor for reviewing, and finally to a 3rd proofreader for fine-tuning the translation and to eliminate any remaining errors and assure of the translation meet the context.
This is known as a strict TEP (Translation, Editing and Proofreading) process: It is necessary for translation projects to ensure the highest quality. Many famous translation/localization clients like Microsoft or Oracle actually request their vendors to do so. They sometimes ask the vendors to provide 3 different versions of the TEP-process files and spot-check these internally.
