The main template can be created in two ways:
1-Template Creation via Transcription of Original Audio into Native Language
With this method, all the dialogues and screen texts in your project, are transcribed with all the in and out times. An srt file and an Excel file are created, abiding to the rules mentioned above. The advantage of using this method, is that it allows us to use the transcription to create subtitles for the hearing impaired (SDH). Moreover, the Excel file, is shared with the translators via Google Drive. Translators may review the rules to which they must adhere, from within this file.
The total number of words is naturally revealed, once the transcription has been completed. Due to this, it is not possible to provide a total fee based on word count upfront. However, for our clients who prefer to have a total fee upfront, we are able to calculate it based on total video length, rated at 7 Euros / minute.
For our clients who prefer to wait until the word count is revealed, fee is rated at 10 Euros / 100 words.
2-Template Creation via Spotting Only
With this method, the transcription has previously been completed by another party, or the translation of the dialogues has been completed and we are provided with a plain text file. This text file is then spotted, again abiding to the same rules that apply to all subtitles and a master template file is created.
The fee for a template creation using this method, is rated at 5 Euros / minute, or 8 Euros / 100 words.
