Voice Over or Subtitles?


This is a decision that comes down to what user-experience you wish to provide for your audience. Of course, each one has it’s own unique benefits. Voice-over is the most professional level of service we offer. Adding language tracks provides your audience with an easy-to-view experience in their native language.

Our best quality Translation Service can ensure the highest quality of Voice-Over service as well as maximum message control. The process begins with transcribing every word of your video and subsequently translating it into the target language/s. This provides ultimate control and accuracy of the translated transcription. Once you approve the translation, we will engage professional voice talent to narrate the video with extreme care to ensure the voice-over matches all time sequences and cues.

How it works


The first step is to upload your videos for transcription or automatic transcript assignment. You also need to complete an online translation profile that provides context around your content and communicates to LANGUAGE FIRST what your business is about, the voice of your brand, and the style in which you’d like to communicate to customers. It’s often helpful to provide a glossary of terms.

After your videos have been transcribed you can initiate translations with a click of a button. When your translations have been processed, you can download transcripts and multilingual subtitles in a variety of formats. You can also publish interactive video plugings with complete support for all the languages that you process.
