Every single detail will be analysed, studied and looked after so that you do not need to worry. Some would say it’s not too classy to blow our own trumpet… but we just like to point out two very important details.
We have achieved ISO 9001 Quality Management certification in recognition of our consistent performance and high standards, and ISO 14001 Environmental Management because we care about our planet!
And if you are still curious and want to know more about us, why not have a look at our studio page.
GoLocalise offers transcription services for audio and video files in over 100 languages including English. Our expert team of transcribers will create a text version of your video or audio file, and we can also translate and/or voice over your transcript.
There are different variations of this service, all of which will result in a text document containing the dialogue from the source audio or video file:
This will include absolutely everything that is part of the footage, such as “ums, uhs”, false starts, noise words, any sounds, etc. The transcriber will also leave the speech as it is, even in the case of incorrect phrase or language selection, colloquialisms and poor grammar.
This type of transcription will only include the speech, but the transcriber will leave out any redundant or unnecessary elements such as nervous stutters, false starts, etc. The speech will however stay the same and will not be edited.
With this type of transcription, the style will be “written” more than “spoken”. Any grammar or syntax errors will be corrected in the process, and the text will read well and be grammatically correct.
We specialise in transcriptions that will be used as voice over scripts, (on-screen) captions and subtitles. Our experience in these fields has made us the top choice for clients all over the world who want to re-version their existing audiovisual content into several different language versions.
Transcriptions can be used for different purposes – as a script for a voice over session, or as reference when editing raw footage for example. We can also produce a time-coded and condensed version of the transcription that can be used for subtitling purposes.
No matter if your content is in English or any other language, we can help!
When localising and translating videos (whether you choose subtitling or voice over), you’ll find that often there are several elements that need to be localised. These elements can be on-screen graphics, text and/or captions.
Our expert project managers will review the video or project file and advise which elements would be best subtitled or graphically edited. If you do not have the project files, worry not; one of our expert editors will be able to re-create the graphics, captions and titles of your video.
Our expert editors work with a multitude of software: to localise graphics we use Photoshop or Illustrator; and After Effects and Final Cut Pro to create motion graphics and visual effects.
Once all elements are in the video, and the graphic elements have been created and localised, we can then rebuild the video and export it to whichever format and codec you need. We’ll prepare your video project for any platform, including PAL, NTSC, VOD, the Internet, smartphones, game consoles, mp3 players and tablets.
With our facilities and highly skilled operators, your videos are in safe hands!
We use continuous quality control processes to monitor quality and accuracy at each and every stage of a translation project.

AVT requires some of the same skills as general translation but also poses additional challenges. In subtitling for instance, the translator must fit the translation into the time and space constraints posed by the video; whilst in voice over the length of the translation must be considered and match the original as closely as possible. And these are just a few examples.
AVT is certainly no easy task and it takes a team of experienced professionals to do it well. This is where we can help you. We are highly specialised in AVT, so you can trust us to deliver products which look good, sound great and are perfectly suited to your target audience, all in your preferred format.
Albanian or gjuha shqipe is an Indo-European language spoken by five million people, primarily in Albania, Kosovo, the Republic of Macedonia, and Greece, but also in other areas of South-eastern Europe in which there is an Albanian population, including Montenegro and the Preševo Valleyof Serbia. Centuries-old communities speaking Albanian-based dialects can be found scattered in Greece, southern Italy, Sicily, and Ukraine. As a result of a modern diaspora, there are also Albanian speakers elsewhere in those countries as well as in other parts of the world, including Austria, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, the Scandinavian countries, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Turkey.
The earliest written document that mentions the Albanian language is a late-13th-century crime report from Dubrovnik. The first audio recording of Albanian was made by Norbert Jokl on 4 April 1914 in Vienna.
The first written mention of the Albanian language was on 14 July 1285 in Dubrovnik, when a certain Matthew, witness of a crime, stated “I heard a voice shouting on the mountainside in the Albanian tongue”.
The Albanian language is an Indo-European language in a branch by itself, sharing its branch with no other extant language. The other extant Indo-European languages in a branch by themselves are Armenian and, in some classifications, Greek. Though sharing lexical isoglosses with Greek, Balto-Slavic, and Germanic, the vocabulary of Albanian is quite distinct. Once hastily grouped with Germanic and Balto-Slavic based on the merger of Proto-Indo-European *ǒ and *ǎ into *ǎ in a supposed “northern group”, Albanian has been proven to be distinct from these two because this vowel shift is only part of a larger push chain that affected all long vowels. Albanian does share two features with Balto-Slavic languages: a lengthening of syllabic consonants before voiced obstruents and a distinct treatment of long syllables ending in a sonorant. Conservative features of Albanian include the retention of the distinction between active and middle voice, present tense, and aorist.
Albanian is considered to have evolved from an ancient Paleo-Balkan language, usually taken to be either Illyrian or Thracian, but this is debated. (See also Thraco-Illyrian and Messapian language.)
The earliest loanwords attested in Albanian come from Doric Greek, whereas the strongest influence came from Latin. The period during which Proto-Albanian and Latin interacted was protracted and drawn out roughly from the 2nd century BCE to the 5th century CE. This is borne out into roughly three layers of borrowings, the largest number belonging to the second layer. The first, with the fewest borrowings, was a time of less important interaction. The final period, probably preceding the Slavic or Germanic invasions, also has a notably smaller number of borrowings. Each layer is characterized by a different treatment of most vowels, the first layer having several that follow the evolution of Early Proto-Albanian into Albanian; later layers reflect vowel changes endemic to Late Latin and presumably Proto-Romance. Other formative changes include the syncretism of several noun case endings, especially in the plural, as well as a large-scale palatalization.
A brief period followed, between the 7th and 9th centuries CE, that was marked by heavy borrowings from Southern Slavic, some of which predate the “o-a” shift common to the modern forms of this language group. Starting in the latter 9th century CE, there was a period characterized by protracted contact with the Proto-Romanians, or Vlachs, though lexical borrowing seems to have been mostly one sided—from Albanian into Romanian. Such borrowing indicates that the Romanians migrated from an area where the majority was Slavic (i.e. Middle Bulgarian) to an area with a majority of Albanian speakers (i.e. Dardania, where Vlachs are recorded in the 10th century CE). Their movement is probably related to the expansion of the Bulgarian Empire into Albania around that time.
According to the central hypothesis of a project undertaken by the Austrian Science Fund FWF, Old Albanian had a significant influence on the development of many Balkan languages. Intensive research now aims to confirm this theory. Albanian is being researched using all available texts before a comparison with other Balkan languages is carried out. The outcome of this work will include the compilation of a lexicon providing an overview of all Old Albanian verbs.
