Types of
Transcription

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:

1Verbatim transcriptions

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.

2WORD-FOR-WORD TRANSCRIPTIONS

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.

3GENERAL TRANSCRIPTIONS

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!

Caption and graphic
Editing

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!

3 steps to high
Quality Assurance

We use continuous quality control processes to monitor quality and accuracy at each and every stage of a translation project.

Hand-picked translators

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.

EDITING

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.

REVISION

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.

A translation
Masterclass

At GoLocalise nothing is too much hassle! The expert team of project managers, translators and linguists are always at hand to ensure your content is perfectly localised – whatever the media. You’ll benefit from a company with over 15 years' experience, an in-house subtitling team, and in-house state-of-the-art recording facilities!

Audiovisual Translation

Audiovisual translation, or AVT, is a highly specialised type of translation, which is increasingly popular in today’s digital world. We are surrounded by audiovisual content, so it makes sense that there is a type of translation that is suitable for the modern technological world.

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.

Video Game Translation

We know that a game doesn’t just have to look good and play smoothly, it also has to sound great and read well too. That’s why we, at GoLocalise, provide all our clients with carefully selected linguists, who are not only specialists in the video game field but are also gamers themselves.

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.

E-learning Translation

GoLocalise provides your company with e-learning translation, localisation and voice over services, leaving you with a ready-to-host product.

We only employ highly skilled linguists who have extensive experience in e-learning and a sound understanding of the particular industry sector they are dealing with.

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.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF Flemish

Flemish or Belgian Dutch, or Vlaams) is the Dutch language as spoken in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium, be it standard (as used in schools, government and the media)[4] or informal (as used in daily speech, “tussentaal (nl)” [ˈtʏsə(n)ˌtaːl]). There are four principal Dutch dialects in Flanders: Brabantian, East Flemish, West Flemish and Limburgish. The latter two are sometimes considered separate languages.

Linguistically, ‘Flemish’ is sometimes used as a term for the language of the former County of Flanders, especially West Flemish. However, as a result of political emancipation of the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, the combined culture of that region (which consists of West Flanders, East Flanders, Flemish Brabant, Antwerp, Limburg) and of Brussels has come to be known as ‘Flemish’ and so sometimes are the four dialects or the common intermediate language. Despite the name, Brabantian and in particular its local dialects of Antwerp and Mechelen is the dominant contributor to the Flemish tussentaal. Using it for the official language in Flanders is not entirely correct: the official language in Flanders is standard Dutch.

Flemish includes more French loanwords in its everyday vocabulary than does Netherlands Dutch, but there are exceptions: for example, the former Belgian gendarmerie was known as the Rijkswacht (“Guard of the Realm”) in Belgium while the equivalent body in the Netherlands is the Koninklijke Marechaussee (“Royal Military Constabulary”).

The traditionally most spoken Dutch dialect in Belgium, Brabantian, has had a large influence on the vocabulary used in Belgium. Examples include beenhouwer (Brabantian) and slager (Hollandic), both meaning butcher (slager is however used in Belgium to mean the kind of butcher who sells salami, sausages, etc.: cf. the difference between beenhouwerij (butcher’s shop) and slagerij (delicatessen)); also schoon (Brabantian) vs. mooi (Hollandic) “beautiful”: in standard Dutch, schoon means clean, whereas in Belgium it is often used for pretty or beautiful. Another notable difference is ge / gij (“you” in Brabantian and “thou / thee” in the Dutch Bible, originally translated by Belgian Protestants fleeing the Inquisition under Philip II of Spain) vs. je / jij (“you” singular in Hollandic), jullie (“you” plural in Hollandic). The changes (isoglosses) from northern to southern Dutch dialects are somewhat gradual, both vocabulary-wise and phonetically, and the boundaries within coincide with territorial borders. There is a distinct boundary located in the river area of the Netherlands, a historical border of the Roman empire, south of which “Brabants” is spoken, a Dutch dialect with some of the phonological traits commonly associated with Belgium. A second distinct border area is located around the border with the Belgian territories, where the transition is mostly lexical, but also with an intensification of the phonological diversion from northern Dutch. An exception to the border with the Belgian territories for this border is Zeelandic Flanders (“Zeeuws-Vlaanderen”), a part of the Netherlands where Flemish is spoken.

The differences between Dutch in the Netherlands and Flemish are significant enough for Flemish and Dutch television shows with rather informal speech occasionally to become subtitled for the other country in the standard language.

In 2009, one of the main publishers of Dutch dictionaries, Prisma, published the first Dutch dictionary that distinguished between the two natiolectic varieties “Nederlands Nederlands” (or “Netherlandish Dutch”) and “Belgisch Nederlands” (“Belgian Dutch”), treating both variations as equally correct. The selection of the “Flemish Dutch” words was based on the Referentiebestand Belgisch Nederlands (RBBN): an electronic database built under the supervision of Prof. Dr. W. Martin (Free University in Amsterdam, Netherlands) and Prof. Dr. W. Smedts (Catholic University in Leuven, Belgium).

Professor Willy Martin, one of the Flemish editors, claimed that the latter expressions are “just as correct” as the former. This formed a break with the previous lexicologists’ custom of indicating Dutch words that are mostly only used in Flanders, while not doing the same for Dutch words mostly only used in the Netherlands, which could give the impression that only usage in the Netherlands defines the standard language.

In the Dutch language, around 3,500 words exist which are considered “Flemish Dutch”, and 4,500 words which are considered “Netherlands Dutch”.

In November 2012 the Belgian radio channel Radio 1 wrote a text with many Flemish words and asked several Dutch speaking people to “translate” it into general Dutch. Almost no inhabitant of The Netherlands was able to make a correct translation, whereas almost all Flemings succeeded.
