After reviewing your file, we will assign your project to the best-qualified subtitle translator with the relevant expertise needed to translate your content. The translator will create a time-coded transcript, which will serve as a master document/reference that can be used for translations to other languages of your choice should you need them. This is done for both English to Chinese and Chinese to English translations. Having a transcript is a major convenience for this very purpose. The transcript styles most commonly used are either Verbatim (word-for-word) or Readable (lightly edited).
Once the transcript is prepared, our expert translators will localize your content into the required Chinese language/dialect for your specific needs and target audience(s). In addition to localizing the subtitles or closed captions, USA Studios can also localize any graphics or on-screen text that comes with your content either from English to Chinese or from Chinese to English. In some cases, depending on how the complexity of your project, we may need you to supply additional files or data.
