Dubbing, subtitling, synchronization

Foreign language editing of audiovisual material is a complex process which requires input from many specialists including transcribers, cutters, translators of texts, casting specialists, editors, professional dubbing artists, sound engineers, and linguists who can monitor the quality during the foreign language recording in a recording studio which has the most up-to-date technology.

Foreign language subtitling

When carrying out foreign language subtitling, it is important to ensure that the text reproduces the spoken language so that the content is completely understandable.When carrying out foreign language subtitling, it is important to ensure that the text reproduces the spoken language so that the content is comprehensible in its entirety. In addition, the viewer must also be able to follow the film at the same time. Of course we will also ensure that cultural aspects and appropriate adaptions are taken into consideration during the subtitling process. Our many years of experience in the translation of texts helps us to take all of the necessary measures to ensure flawless subtitles with the appropriate picture and sound to implement your subtitling project professionally.

Foreign language dubbing artists

At KERN we have developed our own casting process for selecting linguistically accurate and skilled dubbing artists. As a rule they are linguists, interpreters, speakers and/or actors with the corresponding linguistic background. KERN's sound engineers have many years of experience in the preparation and post-production of foreign language sound recordings as well as modern production methods. They also have the most up-to-date digital recording methods in order to produce tailored recordings especially for advertising and industrial films as well as company videos.


Voice-over features a superimposed foreign language translation of a recorded voice in the form of audio dubbing. As a rule a transcript using the video file is created which, after translation into the target language by native speakers, is recorded and is superimposed over the original dialogue or replaces it. Issues often occur as a result of missing video files, but not at KERN.

We are flexible and can adapt to particular situations and also have the option of creating a high-quality voice-over without a video file. This was the case when working with Dental Union. A Youtube video served as a foundation and was adequate enough for the our professional team to produce a comprehensive, high-quality voice-over. This is how the customer's film was produced in the local language.
