We provide a range of professional Audiovisual Services
Our Audiovisual and Interpreting department provides a full range of services including: subtitling, interpreting, translation for dubbing, and accessibility (subtitling for the deaf and hard of hearing), as well as audio description. We offer skilled translation and technical expertise.
As with our translation service, we offer all language combinations — from any source language to any target language. Our linguists guarantee consistency between projects, by using style guides, and a single reviewer for each project. We will be happy to analyse your translation, audiovisual and interpreting needs and provide the best possible solution. We can handle large volumes and our software (CAT Tools) guarantee consistency in the long term — this is especially important for subtitling TV Series and long movies. In fact, we have translated and subtitled an Oscar winner!
As well as standard subtitling, we also offer Closed Captions subtitling (for the deaf and hard-of-hearing). For closed captions we adapt the text, and applied reading speed, to the age of the viewers that the program is addressed to.

For blind and visually impaired viewers, we offer audiodescription, also referred to as a video-description. This is a visual description — a form of narration used to provide information surrounding key visual elements in a film, TV, or theatrical performance.
This is a fast-moving industry, and we regularly attend industry seminars and conferences to ensure we are up to date with all the latest developments. We perform a pre-analysis of the lapses between dialogue or significant sound elements, and always try to avoid subjectivity in the descriptions.
