Video Translation For The New Bedford Whaling Museum
Boston, MA – Language Connections, a 30-year-old translation services company with decades of experience working to translate marketing materials for clients throughout the museum sector. We’ve served museums of all sizes, including the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Science in Boston, and more. Most recently, Language Connections did a video translation project for the New Bedford Whaling Museum, subtitling their video ad (it encourages families to visit the museum) into German, French, Italian, Japanese and Chinese.
Video Translation for better marketing
To help the New Bedford Whaling Museum with this project, Language Connections followed a few steps. The first was to acquire their transcript and find a professional translator to handle each of the five languages requested. It was important to convey to these translators that the language needed to be accessible to the target demographic of the video. This meant the language should be light, fun, and easy to understand, as the video targeted both parents and children.
The second step in this video translation project was to take the French, German, Chinese, Japanese and Italian subtitles, then add them into an organized, easily decipherable document for the museum staff. The New Bedford Whaling Museum chose to add the subtitles themselves to their own video. Language Connections sometimes just prepares the translated text for clients, as in this case. For other video translation clients, we’ve added the subtitles to the video for them.
The last step of this project was to QA the subtitles post professional translating before handing them back to the client. Language Connections’ project managers check over the final translations to make sure everything matches up and everything has been rendered into the target languages. We pride ourselves on offering a separate, rigorous QA process so every client gets a final product they can trust!
We’re proud to be the translation company for the New Bedford Whaling Museum and handle projects like this. When we offer business translation services to museums, we see our work as something that supports their very important missions to educate the public.
