Translation of Closed Captions & Providing Voice for Audio Description

Job posted at: Jan 6, 2020 12:31 GMT   (GMT: Jan 6, 2020 12:31)

Job type: Translation/editing/proofing job
Service required: Translation, Audio Description (other)
Confidentiality level: HIGH

Languages: English to Chinese, English to French, English to Japanese, English to Spanish

Job description:

We have an ongoing requirement for supplying closed captions for training videos and corresponding audio description (into your native language). Both aspects would be completed online and would involve using my client’s portal. We can send examples of both AD & CC.

These are basic office administration training videos (for example, how to login to Office 365). Each video lasts on average 5 minutes and each course has 10-12 videos. About half of each 5 minute video would have been translated by the client themselves, we will just focus on inserting the audio description and the translations of the closed caption for the rest which should be around two and a half minutes in total.

We need to get a cost together for the verbal and written work for each video, so need to know how much time you think you would spend on each video for completion. The closed captions would be reasonably straightforward as they can be translated on the portal – so a price per word, relating to your time taken. Then the Audio Description would be the same – so how long you think it would take to describe the processes on the screen – this would be about 2.5 minutes per 5 minutes. We are quoting for a 5 minute video and will pro-rata it up or down, so would be grateful if you could do the same.
