Today’s world is fast paced, ever-changing, and ever expanding - so are the needs of your organization and your clients. More than half of Facebook users watch at least one video each day, and 48% of these same users access the site in a language other than English. That’s just on Facebook! Today, 3 billion people have Internet access, and only half of webpages are written in English. With multilingual content, the potential is unlimited.
As the global leader in translation services, Lionbridge understands the importance of staying two steps ahead of the competition. That’s why we created our OnDemand Portal, an online application designed with your business in mind to save you the headache that often accompanies translating content.
Every service offered through the onDemand Portal is unique, and so we created the Service Spotlight to demystify the magic of the translation process.
Previous Service Spotlights have covered Graphic File Translation, 12 Hour Document Translation, and Webpage Translation. This week we’ll be exploring Multilingual Video Subtitling with Review from Lionbridge's onDemand Portal.
How does it work?
At Lionbridge Technologies, we take translation seriously. Our network of more than 22,000 linguists are required to have at least two years of translation experience prior to employment. Translators are native speakers of the target language and are specialized by industry, allowing the preservation of your voice and message, no matter the language.
With the onDemand Portal, project submission is streamlined and autonomous.
- From the home page, select “Text File (12h)” from the “Document” tab
- Under the “Process” tab, select “Upload Your Content”
- When prompted, locate your file in your hard drive and upload it to the website
- The Portal will then ask to select the source language of the document, and the target language for translation (Choose as many or as few as you would like)
- Once the file has been uploaded to the portal, you will be provided with an instant quote, based on the length of your video.
- After reviewing and submitting your order, sit back and relax. You will be notified upon completion of your document, typically within 5 days time.
What’s in it for me?
The simplicity of the Portal allows you to get back to the more important things on your To Do List in less time; and you can rest your mind at ease knowing that your content will be ready when you need it, without compromising on quality.
The instant-quoting system means you have time to browse a little more – leading you back to the Portal to finalize your project upon realizing that Lionbridge offers the most value for your dollar of any translation service provider around – All while keeping to your deadline!
The expanded reach of your subtitled video offers more audience impressions than otherwise would have been possible; and thanks to human translators the subtleties and nuances of your message will ring clear.
