The experience gained over the years to comprehend industry-specific jargon gives TIN’s transcriptionists an edge over other company’s automated process of transcription.
Voice-over, Subtitles and CART
An audio track is created using voice actors and synced with your video content. Text is placed over the screen, translating spoken dialogue in your video and any text that shows up on the screen (e.g., text messages, quotes, generic, etc.). Designed for deaf and hard of hearing audiences, closed captions place text over the screen for dialogue and important audio elements.
Websites, Translation/Localization of Software and Machine Translation
2021 is the modern age of technology and while Machine Translation produces fluency rather than accuracy, we have long established that nothing will provide more accuracy and clarity than a human touch. Qualified editors will ensure your website content is localized and targets specific cultural and localization needs to provide your customers the quality they need and deserve.
Language Assessment Services
TIN’s language assessment can be done online via a secure platform or in-person. Our language competency test will check for syntax and fluency of both target and source languages.
The trainings and professional certificate program established by TIN ensures our customers the highest level of language services, meeting standards that exceed those prescribed by the American Translation Association (ATA), the International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA), the National Council on Interpreters in Healthcare (NCIHC), and the National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators (NAJIT). Our trainings for organizations’ bilingual teachers, paraprofessionals and administrators equip them to function effectively and ethically as interpreters in any setting. TIN also offers trainings on the effective use of interpreters, cross cultural communication, and other interpreter trainings tailored to meet the needs of your community.
