VOICE-OVER AND SUBTITLING
The number of moving images online is growing rapidly. Videos are either replacing or supplementing face-to-face training courses in many companies, providing consumers with a source of information or instructions for use. Videos are also being increasingly used in the worlds of science and education.
Baker & Company can help you implement your video projects with language services that include voice-over, subtitling, audio dubbing and graphic texts. Take advantage of our broad experience in this field and our extensive network of music designers, film and sound studios.
OPTIMIZING TRANSLATION PROCESSES
In many companies that have grown organically, translation projects are often awarded directly by individual departments in an uncoordinated way. Sooner or later, the time comes when a more effective process is called for, which can be applied equally for all translations.
Does it make more sense to establish an in-house language services department, or is it more advisable to engage an external service provider for the task? We will be pleased to advise you on how a solution tailored to suit your requirements could look – a solution guaranteed to reduce workflow complexity, ensuring higher content quality, greater coherence, and a maximum of cost efficiency.
THE USE OF CAT TOOLS
The digital revolution has long since led to changes in the world of translation. The use of Computer Aided Translation (CAT) tools makes for improved terminology consistency, better quality and higher output. There are a relatively large number of software solutions on the market. But what are the strengths and weaknesses of these various applications and which of them best serves your needs?
We use these tools on a daily basis and are well acquainted with their various strengths and weaknesses. We will be glad to share our knowledge and provide you with tips and suggestions that help you make the right decision. We can also help you integrate the application in the digital communication platforms of your company.
TRANSLATING WEBSITES AND MULTILINGUALES CONTENT MANAGEMENT
Particularly in larger companies, translation projects like websites, videos,
publicity material or manuals frequently involve multiples of languages and as many as five, ten, twenty, or sometimes even more target languages may be required. In these situations, an intelligent concept is called for that directly links your content management system with the CAT tool. Furthermore, it helps avoid redundant translation content. The traditional method of translating texts into other languages, i.e. exporting files, translating them and reimporting them – soon becomes too prone to error and unnecessarily complicated. We have the right solutions and will be pleased to present them to you.
