Video localization

Logrus IT provides a full spectrum of game, video and multimedia localizations services. These include subtitling, effect recreation and trans-creation, closed captioning, and professionally recorded voiceovers.

The process itself involves the following components:

  • Transcribing
    • Soundtrack text
    • Screen text
  • Script translation, editing, and cultural and voiceover adaptation
  • Studio voice recording
  • Sound post-processing
    • Noise removal
    • Cutting
    • Leveling
    • Adding filters and effects
  • Adding localized screen text
  • Synchronizing audio and video

We provide all types of voiceovers:

  • Dubbing
    • Translated voiceover superimposed over original audio
  • No time constraint
    • Slides, audio guides, etc.
  • Time syncing
    • Original voiceover replaced with localized voiceover (meets same time constraint; strict time sync additionally aligns with pauses)
  • Lip syncing
    • Original voiceover replaced with localized voiceover (synchronized with lip movement)
  • Commercial advertising videos

Video localization process

 

(We’ve provided comfortable timing estimates, but many of these tasks can be done quicker if required).

  1. Project received from client
  2. Preparation stage

  • Typically requires 1-4 days
  1. Script translation
