Audiovisual adaptation: A universal language
Audiovisual content is now an inescapable part of international communications. This generic term encompasses a broad range of materials, including institutional and corporate films and motion design, animated film, web series and documentaries as well as TV series, e-learning modules, audio guides, video games and much, much more.
All of these different materials demand a highly specialised skill set as well as a dedicated, multi-disciplinary team: you’ll need an audiovisual translator, a sound and image technician, an editor and actors. All of these professionals will need to work closely to achieve a seamless final product. Taking your audiovisual materials abroad involves so much more than straightforward translation. Subtitles and dubbing require you to adjust the text to the medium (lip movement, speech rhythm and tone).
