Professional voice dubbing for your audiovisual projects

Voice dubbingreplaces the original language used in the filming of an audiovisual work (film, series, etc.) with another language – the language spoken by the population to whom the work in question is broadcast. For optimum results, the voice of the dubbing artist must match the key characteristics of the original actor (gender, age, background). The two voices must therefore sound similar. The dubber’s voice must also be in sync with the dubbed actor’s lip movement (known as labial synchronisation).The dubbing stages include script preparation, adaptation (translation), selection of voice talent according to voice criteria, studio recording, and finally final editing.

Precise subtitling for effective multilingual broadcasting

Subtitling consists of text corresponding to the words heard (or the translation of the words heard), being displayed at the bottom of the image when a programme is broadcast. When translating subtitles, the linguist must demonstrate a certain concision and great clarity to comply with the “rules” of subtitling. The text must be easy to read and fluid for the viewer. The translation as a whole must also be faithful to the original work, remaining consistent and respecting the meaning. Subtitles are also subject to constraints such as reading time, display time, and visual breakdown.The steps in the subtitling process include spotting with a time code, transcription, translation, synchronisation of the subtitles with the spoken dialogue and finally simulation to check the overall consistency.

Enthralling voiceovers for your corporate and advertising videos

Voiceovers involve using the voice of a character who is not seen on screen during the course of a shot, sequence or scene. It is therefore located off-screen. Its purpose is to facilitate the audience’s understanding or to get a message across. The voiceover can be used as a drive narrative, explain or correct. It can be used to clarify a point, guide the discourse, provide additional information, explain an emotion or feeling, describe the context, or challenge a specific aspect. The voice-over must be measured and appropriate. It must fit naturally into the context in which it is used, with controlled intonations and perfect diction.The voiceover process follows key stages: script preparation, selection of vocal talent based on voice criteria, studio recording and finally final editing.

Accurate transcription of your audio and video content

Transcription simply involves writing down, the content of an audio or video recording. Transcription therefore allows you to benefit from a written trace of words heard. It can be a full transcription, focusing on content as much as form (how it was said), uncluttered (focused on content), or synthetic.As well as requiring perfect linguistic skills, transcription requires rigour, concentration and patience. The transcriber must have a high level of oral comprehension: there must be no omissions and no additions.
