Video is everywhere. Over the last three years, its use has grown exponentially and shows no signs of slowing. Tools and service providers have made their creation and distribution more accessible than ever before be it for marketing, B2B communications, or entertainment. It also remains one of the higher risk elements of any translation or localization project because of its heavy reliance on outsourced agencies and third parties. In this presentation, John Burke will demystify the process of translating video content and identify the resources needed to build a cost effective production, from the questions that project managers and sales people should ask, to the pitfalls they should be aware of. This session will help you get to grips with what's involved in localizing video content by reviewing the critical processes necessary to identify the best sub-contractors for the work involved and produce the highest quality material at competitive prices.
