Launch your stories worldwide with successful localization.
Welcome to the world of audiovisual translation and subtitling.
I completed hundreds of projects, providing translation and subtitles for film studios, broadcast networks and VOD platforms.
Make your media shine worldwide
In a global world, the success of movies and TV shows hinges on international reception.
Hi, I’m Riccardo, your localization specialist. I help studios and directors translate their content from English, Spanish and French into Italian.
The goal of any filmmaker is to convey messages and emotions, by transposing stories and characters to the screen.
Professional audiovisual translation and subtitling make sure:
- the original message is delivered as the author intended
- dialogues sound natural and genuine, as if the script was conceived in the local language
- the final adaptation sparkles the same emotions in foreign audiences
Subtitles must adhere to very strict requirements.
I work with professional subtitling software to ensure 100% accuracy, supporting all popular formats like .stl, .srt, .dfxp, .pac, DLP Cinema and more.
- Timecoding and translation
- Accessibility: Closed Captions and SDH
- Customized Burn-In
- Conformance to international standards and style guides
- Creative subtitles for particular uses
Subtitles can also broaden your audience in a variety of environments:
- Cinema & TV
- Social Media
- Business & Advertising
Translation and adaptation for a full range of audiovisual material.
Recreate a true oral tone to enchant the public.
From synopsis and catalog information to scripts ready for filming.
- Dubbing (Lip-sync)
- Voice-over and simil-sync
- Screenplays, Scripts, Dialogue lists
- Audio Description for the Blind and Visually Impaired
Sometimes translation is not enough. More often than you think, you need to adapt cultural references and local standards for a specific region.
I can help you localize your content for the Italian market.
Ensure you communicate smoothly with your audience and they’ll come back to you.
- Website Localization
- Video game Localization
- App Localization
Fluent texts that don’t sound like a translation to get your message across the language barrier. From technical to more creative texts like marketing presentations and brochures.
These are my main fields of expertise:
- Tourism & Travel
- Sports & Games
- IT & Hi-Tech
I also work with CAT Tools to manage your terminology and glossaries, and professional DTP software to add style or match the original design.
Revisione e Controllo Qualità
A bad-written text is the quickest way to failure.
Careful proofreading and editing can save your content from undesired effects.
Language, tone of voice, formatting, layout… everything will be in perfect shape for publishing.
I can help you enter a foreign market and set up the right localization strategy without incurring in common fails.
We can also tackle other languages, thanks to trusted colleagues in my network.
Or, I can put you in touch with outstanding professionals like video crew and editors, writers and graphic designers for a whole audiovisual production.
I touched a wide variety of genres, so I know how to face the challenges of each one of them.
Note: due to confidentiality agreements, this is just a selection of my work. In certain cases, I may have worked on a few episodes only and not the whole show.
