    Two dubbing methods are available: self-managed and machine-based. HQ recommends self-dubbing.
    Self-managed Dubbing
    • Prerequisite requirements
      • Translated SRT caption files
    • Process
      • Local office handles self-dubbing process
      • Send final dubbed videos, with translated final exam, to HQ localization reps for processing
      • Integrate dubbed videos and translated final exam, in the language-specific curriculum of the online training system
      • User selects the desired language-specific curriculum

3d-party Service Using Machine-based Voice Dubbing

  • Prerequisite requirements
    • Translated SRT caption files
  • Process
    • We recommend creating a short dubbed pilot video clip to benchmark the dubbing quality of the service for your language and service SLA suitability
    • Local office handles dubbing process directly with 3rd-party
      • We tried VideoDubber as a dubbing 3rd-party
      • Please note the response of the German office on the output quality of pilot clip:
        • “Non technical” text (i.e. “everyday language”) text-to-speech conversion works surprisingly well, however special technical text conversion often sounds weird.
        • For some long text, the dubbed voice rushes through the text, which sounds strange.
    • Send final dubbed videos, with translated final exam, to HQ localization reps for processing
    • Dubbed videos, and translated final exam, will be integrated as a language-specific curriculum of the online training system
    • User selects its desired language-specific curriculum
  • Currently 3rd-party available dubbing languages, and their pre-negotiation prices, are:

    Language (Dialect) Price Per Minute (USD)
    French (France) 9
    Spanish (Castilian) 4.5
    German 10.5
