Audiovisual Translation Services
“Audiovisual translation is an art: a series of specialized techniques and approaches, working with different file formats to provide a faithful, fluent and localized version of your audiovisual text.”
The translation of marketing documents is of utmost importance for any internationally oriented company, regardless of whether these documents are intended for internal or external use.
Subtitling video content
Audiovisual translation has an individual nature and presents its own issues. While it is a still a question of transferring the original message into another language as loyally as possible, there are a few differences to take into account.
First of all, the source text is usually composed of dialogue or monologue and is therefore oral. There are several constraints to be taken into account due to the dual nature of an audiovisual text: the target text must stick to a limited number of characters and must be easily read by viewers while visible on screen.
Of course, the subtitles have to be synchronized with the dialogue. In the case of closed captions, which allow the deaf and hard of hearing to follow a film or TV series, a color-coding system is used to indicate what type of sound is being described (birdsong, voiceover, tires screeching, etc.)
