Custom Translation Solution Fit for Purpose
From untimed voice recordings to syllable-by-syllable lip-synced dubbing, Andovar offers media translation solutions optimized for your project’s specific needs.
Translating for lip-sync dubbing is one of the most challenging translations there is. Target translation lengths need to be respected, despite most languages expanding from English. Use of advanced translation synchronization tools allows users to fragment words by syllable and have better control over gaps between words and how the voice actor speaks a line. This results in greater accuracy when dubbing into foreign languages.
Using specialized subtitle translators with years of broadcast translation experience, our translators are adept at adapting the nuances found in international TV scripts. We offer a range of subtitling formats found in any type of content and bring the content to life in your audience's local languages.
To help you grow your international audience, Andovar helps you gain additional visibility with premium translated metadata. From Youtube to Vimeo and other OTT platforms, translated metadata increases a video's reach and discoverability.
