You deserve the best!

Leave your project to the experts at GoLocalise so that you can relax and be assured of getting top-notch results.

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 and English (including American and British English localisation).

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 transcription service, all of which will result in a text document containing the dialogue from the source audio or video file:

Caption & Graphic Editing

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!

Hand-picked translators

Translators are screened not only for linguistic ability but also for technical knowledge. Applicants must pass interviews and rigorous subject-specific language tests. Furthermore all our translators have at least five years experience in their sector.

Each translated document is edited by a second translator to ensure accuracy and to address any linguistic issues. Again, the work is assigned to a specialist according to subject matter.

At GoLocalise, the translation process goes one step further with a final quality assurance step. A third translator revises the document to verify that editing changes and formatting have been properly implemented, and that there are no…

Frequently Asked Questions

Apart from our translation services, we provide a comprehensive suite of solutions including localisation, transcription, and voice-over services. Our aim is to serve as a complete hub for all your audiovisual content requirements, ensuring each piece is customised to resonate with global audiences.

Upon receiving your content and requirements, we assign the project to a translator or a team of translators best suited for the task. Once the initial translation is completed, it undergoes rigorous quality checks. We then offer our clients a review period for feedback before finalising the translation.

The choice between subtitling and dubbing largely depends on your target audience and the nature of your content. We work with you, providing insights on audience preferences in specific regions, to help decide which approach best suits your project’s goals.

Yes, we’re equipped to handle translations in a multitude of languages, all while maintaining consistent quality. Our vast network of translators allows us to efficiently manage multilingual projects, ensuring your content reaches diverse audiences effectively.

Pricing for audiovisual translation often depends on multiple factors, including the length of content, complexity of the subject matter, desired turnaround time, and specific language pairs required. For instance, translating into less common languages might be pricier due to limited expert availability. Furthermore, services like dubbing or specialised localisation might carry additional costs compared to standard subtitling.

At GoLocalise, we’re fully aware of the dynamic and often fast-paced demands of the audiovisual industry. Our team is well-equipped to handle projects with tight deadlines, ensuring we deliver translations of the highest quality. However, it’s important to note that for projects requiring an especially quick turnaround, we might need to apply a rush fee to accommodate the expedited process.

Most importantly, our commitment to quality remains unwavering. We will only accept projects we are confident we can deliver to our exacting standards. It means that if we take on your urgent project, you can be assured of a result that meets GoLocalise’s benchmarks for excellence, even with the tight timeline.

Maintaining the original tone and intent of content is paramount in professional translation services. Our team of translators, well-versed in both the language and its cultural nuances, prioritises retaining the essence of the original material. It’s not merely about word conversion; it’s about capturing the emotion and essence behind every phrase. By closely collaborating with clients and understanding their objectives, we ensure that the heart and soul of the content remain intact across languages, respecting both linguistic accuracy and emotional resonance.

Handling sensitive or potentially controversial content requires a tactful and nuanced approach. Companies rely on translators who are not just linguistically proficient but are also culturally aware and can provide insight into how specific topics may be perceived in the target region. This ensures translations are respectful, appropriate, and tailored to avoid unintentional misunderstandings or offences.

Absolutely. At GoLocalise, we understand the importance of ensuring the translated content meets your expectations and aligns with your objectives. Once you receive the initial translation or subtitle draft, you have an opportunity to review it. If there are any aspects you’d like adjusted, we offer a free round of amends to ensure the final output is to your satisfaction. This collaborative approach underpins our commitment to delivering excellence and building lasting client relationships.

Quality assurance is central to our ethos. Our translators are not only linguistically adept but also culturally informed. After the initial translation, a separate team reviews the content for accuracy, consistency, and cultural relevance. This two-tiered approach guarantees the quality of our work.

Absolutely. We have a diverse team of translators with expertise in various industries. Whether it’s medical, legal, technological, or any other niche sector, we ensure that your content is handled by experts familiar with the industry-specific terminologies.

Client confidentiality is a top priority for us. Our translators and staff are bound by strict non-disclosure agreements. We also employ secure data transfer and storage protocols, ensuring your content’s privacy throughout its journey with us.

Absolutely, we’re well-versed in supplying translations in this format upon request. Presenting the original and translated content side by side streamlines the process for voice artists, providing a clear reference. This also ensures that the translated version aligns closely with the original in tone, intent, and length, enhancing overall accuracy and efficiency during voice-over projects.

Using a two-column format with the source and target languages side by side offers numerous advantages. For voice-over sessions, this layout aids voice artists in maintaining the right pacing, ensuring translations fit within the same timeframe as the original. The direct comparison also allows for swift resolution of discrepancies or uncertainties, facilitating efficient decision-making. Additionally, this clear structure is beneficial for clients wishing to provide feedback, as they can easily annotate specific lines or sections, fostering a more collaborative approach.
