Brief Background on Company
At Matinée Multilingual, we adapt existing video content into over 80 different languages. This process is more commonly known as video localization. We’ll take your existing video content and transcribe the existing audio, and arrange translation into your target languages. Next, we’ll either record a new voice-over track in whatever language(s) are required, or add subtitles. We can also translate and replace captions within the video. Finally we’ll output the new video files in whatever format is required.
Background on our Scholarship
