Our video department can localise your on-screen text for subtitles or voice-overs in a language. There are many instances of text appearing on videos, some of these are part of the editing package, some on-screen text are placed as graphics or part of the actual footage. Depending on the complexity and how the original text was produced we may require the original data package it was made in.

Localisation of Graphic files

Our own in-house graphics department can localise text in most graphics files. However problems occur when text has been placed over a complex background and the original layered files are not available. This makes the removal of the original text difficult and time consuming and in some cases impossible. Ideally we would need the original artwork in these cases, otherwise the end result might not be up to the standard required.

Adelphi has Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign as well as a number of software packages used by most designers, enabling to change most graphics, even with right to left languages such as Arabic etc.
