“Lifeline has continually earned our trust and respect.” – GM Voices
Our foreign language subtitling and multilingual voice over services deliver high-quality accurately-translated and cost-effective in-language video or natural well-engineered IVR prompts. We deliver right, on-time, on-budget subtitling or voice over, for corporate, informational or educational media.
Translating foreign language voice over / subtitling scripts is an unwelcome distraction for studios who’d MUCH rather be engineering. So when a client requests a “French voice over of that job”, they tend to Google “cheap translator” then just record the resulting “translation”.
Even if the foreign language voice over talent DOES raise concerns while recording, s/he’s usually over-ruled – “Sorry, got to get done today – just read it!”
But that’s not all – inexperienced voice over translators don’t understand video timing. French is often 30% longer than English, so the talent will have to really rush. Even worse, they often crudely cut your translation.
The result: inaccurate, unconvincing product. And because this all needs more studio time, it’s more expensive too.
Yes, it really happens – we know because talents tell us so while recording for us!
Compared to voice over recording or subtitling costs, good translation is cheap. So isn’t it better to know it’s right BEFORE you spend a fortune in studios?
Whoever you record with, do make sure you use a professional language provider for the translation. And get a translator REALLY experienced in translating foreign language voice over… Most aren’t, producing the problems above.
