Japanese subtitling for independent film companies

We have a number of regular clients for whom we produce Japanese transcriptions and also Japanese to English direct translations from audio. Recently, however, we’ve been enjoying working on a number of subtitling projects for independent film companies. These projects have clearly all been destined for the Japanese market, which means that instead of subtitling from Japanese into English, we have been subtitling from English into Japanese!

Same language transcription for university research

University research is pivotal in the development and understanding of the world in which we live and finding the answers to 21st Century ponderings. More often than not, audio recordings are conducted by universities to assist with this research, whether it be on the topic of medicine, law, science or engineering. Analysis of these recordings is inevitably much easier when you have a written transcript in front of you… And that’s where we come in!

Why Italian is the language of love

As a project manager for Knockhundred, I spend a lot of time managing the translation of Italian audio speech into English, and in this context was fascinated to read about somebody who reacts to the sound of Italian speech in the same way as I do. Italian voices and the very sound of the language can quite literally reduce me to tears - with pleasure.

Japanese Transcription and Translation from Audio or Video

We receive a significant number of requests for both Japanese transcription and direct translation from audio or video material. The reason for the requests varies wildly! We work with research institutes, universities, production companies and independent filmmakers on projects which involve either Japanese to Japanese transcription or alternatively Japanese to English direct translation from audio (or just as frequently) from video. Our clients’ demands are as varied as the material for transcription, which makes our job both interesting and at times really challenging.
