Let us spread the passion of the original script, preserve the purpose and the context in which it’s framed, nurture the intensity and style of the dialogue and transmit the content with the professionalism it deserves.

Script translation for film, television or the Internet is a task that requires highly qualified professionals, native to the target culture.

These are a few of the languages we work with: European Spanish, Latin American Spanish, British English, American English, German, European French, Canadian French, Italian, European Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan, Basque, Galician, Cantonese, Mandarin Chinese (simplified and traditional), Japanese, Korean, Greek, Dutch, Czech, Russian, Romanian, Polish, Arabic, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish… and many more!

Script translation services

The film script translation services we offer aren’t just any translation service; we’re extremely aware of the importance of the image in any audiovisual production.

So we can take care of the basic translation of a conventional script, as well as adjusting for dubbing (synchronizing for lip movements and time) or voice over adaptation (time synchronization) taking into account the TCRs, or time code readings, of the audiovisual work. Translating a script is not simply transcoding the text from one language to another; audiovisual translation techniques must be used (such as adaptation, compensation, amplification, linguistic enlargement, loan words or modulation, among many others) when we come across restrictions during the translation process. Similarly, special care must be given to the translation of humorous or cultural elements, wordplay or songs, if we want the translated script to have the same effect in the target language and culture as the original.

We rely on Trágora, because thanks to their translation team and their associate native speakers, they can offer the professional attention, service and results that our own company and our customers need. Also, the immediacy of their service means that Trágora is always our preferred choice.

Film script translation

Do you need to translate a script for a movie? Our film script translation services are an excellent option that will cover all of your needs.

The main characteristics of film script translations are the limitation of characters and the time limitation of each character’s lines to make sure the translated script fits perfectly within the original lines of the characters, making dubbing a success.

The work of timing scripts generally takes place in a studio in the hands of a professional timer who receives the translated and time-synchronized text. In the studio, the timer makes the changes necessary to adjust to the characters’ lip movements. We can create the complete translation of the script taking into account the time limits, saving the timer a lot of time, or we can take care of the entire process, including lip syncing.
