GoLocalise offers transcription services for audio and video files in over 100 languages including English. 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 service, all of which will result in a text document containing the dialogue from the source audio or video file:
This will include absolutely everything that is part of the footage, such as “ums, uhs”, false starts, noise words, any sounds, etc. The transcriber will also leave the speech as it is, even in the case of incorrect phrase or language selection, colloquialisms and poor grammar.
This type of transcription will only include the speech, but the transcriber will leave out any redundant or unnecessary elements such as nervous stutters, false starts, etc. The speech will however stay the same and will not be edited.
With this type of transcription, the style will be “written” more than “spoken”. Any grammar or syntax errors will be corrected in the process, and the text will read well and be grammatically correct.
We specialise in transcriptions that will be used as voice over scripts, (on-screen) captions and subtitles. Our experience in these fields has made us the top choice for clients all over the world who want to re-version their existing audiovisual content into several different language versions.
Transcriptions can be used for different purposes – as a script for a voice over session, or as reference when editing raw footage for example. We can also produce a time-coded and condensed version of the transcription that can be used for subtitling purposes.
No matter if your content is in English or any other language, we can help!
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!

We use continuous quality control processes to monitor quality and accuracy at each and every stage of a translation project.
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 omissions or typographical errors. Every translation is checked word for word against the original and any changes that are required are made to ensure that the correct terminology is used consistently throughout the text.
With GoLocalise you get an experienced and motivated team of professionals that work regularly alongside translation and production companies. We understand the technical requirements necessary to produce perfect foreign language and English voice overs. Our project managers will assist you along the way and we’ll break down the process and present it to you without the big words or technical industry jargon, so you don’t need to worry about the technical aspects and can simply concentrate on growing your business. By working with GoLocalise you’ll be able to offer additional services, i.e., voice over, subtitling and translation to your clients, with a partner who will deliver and on whom you can truly rely.
When working with translation companies we provide easy-to-follow guidelines so that you can provide your own translations for us to “convert” into subtitles, or voice over your translated scripts. Or if you prefer, we can take the entire project off your hands and keep things simple for you – it’ your call!
We’re equally used to working with production companies, so we can deliver your translations or subtitles in any language and format of your choice – either burning-in the subtitles onto the video for you, or supplying you with XML or PNG files for you to do yourself – Adobe After Effects and Final Cut Pro ready files.
We have thousands of passionate and professional voice over artists ready to work with you. No matter the type of voice you are looking for, we’ll either have it in our books or find it and source it for you. We’ll organise a casting and ensure you get the perfect voice to suit your needs.
You will also benefit from having your own dedicated project manager – a single point of contact – to guide you through your project, answer any questions you may have and make things a whole lot easier.
They will guide you through every step and ensure you understand the process. Our industry has a tendency to use lots of technical jargon but your dedicated project manager will be on-hand to untangle the mess and explain all you need to know to ensure you only pay for what you need.

AVT requires some of the same skills as general translation but also poses additional challenges. In subtitling for instance, the translator must fit the translation into the time and space constraints posed by the video; whilst in voice over the length of the translation must be considered and match the original as closely as possible. And these are just a few examples.
AVT is certainly no easy task and it takes a team of experienced professionals to do it well. This is where we can help you. We are highly specialised in AVT, so you can trust us to deliver products which look good, sound great and are perfectly suited to your target audience, all in your preferred format.
We look after every single detail when localising games into foreign languages and always use the latest glossaries for all the current video game platforms, Wii, PlayStation, Xbox, etc. so that terminology and platform word choices are always spot-on.

Our service includes the management of the whole process and the delivery of content adapted to foreign markets.
The steps and services involved in any end-to-end e-learning project are: the translation of the course and on-screen text; the localisation of the course graphics; the voice over recording of the course with your preferred voice over talent/s; and the quality control during which the localised course files are reviewed against the original files.
Arabic is the Classical Arabic language of the 6th century and its modern descendants excluding Maltese. Arabic is spoken in a wide arc stretching across Western Asia, North Africa, and the Horn of Africa. Arabic belongs to the Afro-asiatic family.
The literary language, called Modern Standard Arabic or Literary Arabic, is the only official form of Arabic. It is used in most written documents as well as in formal spoken occasions, such as lectures and news broadcasts.
Arabic is a Central Semitic language, closely related to Aramaic, Hebrew, Ugaritic and Phoenician. Standard Arabic is distinct from and more conservative than all of the spoken varieties, and the two exist in a state known as diglossia, used side-by-side for different societal functions.
Some of the spoken varieties are mutually unintelligible, both written and orally, and the varieties as a whole constitute a sociolinguistic language. This means that on purely linguistic grounds they would likely be considered to constitute more than one language, but are commonly grouped together as a single language for political and/or religious reasons (see below). If considered multiple languages, it is unclear how many languages there would be, as the spoken varieties form a dialect chain with no clear boundaries . If Arabic is considered a single language, it is perhaps spoken by as many as 420 million speakers (native) in the Arab world, making it one of the six most-spoken languages in the world. If considered separate languages, the most-spoken variety would most likely be Egyptian Arabic, with 69 million native speakers—still greater than any other Afro-asiatic language. Arabic also is a liturgical language of 1.6 billion Muslims. It is one of six official languages of the United Nations.
The modern written language (Modern Standard Arabic) is derived from the language of the Quran (known as Classical Arabic or Quranic Arabic). It is widely taught in schools and universities, and is used to varying degrees in workplaces, government, and the media. The two formal varieties are grouped together as Literary Arabic, which is the official language of 26 states and the liturgical language of Islam. Modern Standard Arabic largely follows the grammatical standards of Quranic Arabic and uses much of the same vocabulary. However, it has discarded some grammatical constructions and vocabulary that no longer have any counterpart in the spoken varieties, and has adopted certain new constructions and vocabulary from the spoken varieties. Much of the new vocabulary is used to denote concepts that have arisen in the post-Quranic era, especially in modern times.
Arabic is the only surviving member of the Ancient North Arabian dialect group attested in pre-Islamic Arabic inscriptions dating back to the 4th century. Arabic is written with the Arabic alphabet, which is an abjad script and is written from right-to-left although the spoken varieties are sometimes written in ASCII Latin from left-to-right with no standardized forms.
Arabic has influenced many languages around the globe throughout its history. Some of the most influenced languages are Urdu, Persian, Kurdish, Somali, Swahili, Bosnian, Kazakh, Bengali, Hindi, Malay, Indonesian, Tigrinya, Pashto, Punjabi, Tagalog, Sindhi and Hausa. During the Middle Ages, Literary Arabic was a major vehicle of culture in Europe, especially in science, mathematics and philosophy. As a result, many European languages have also borrowed many words from it. Many words of Arabic origin are also found in ancient languages like Latin and Greek. Arabic influence, mainly in vocabulary, is seen in Romance languages, particularly Spanish, Catalan, Galician, Portuguese, and Sicilian, owing to both the proximity of Christian European and Muslim Arab civilizations and 800 years of Arabic culture and language in the Iberian Peninsula, referred to in Arabic as al-Andalus.
Arabic has also borrowed words from many languages, including Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, Persian and Syriac in early centuries, Kurdish in medieval times and contemporary European languages in modern times, mostly English and French.
