SPG Studios and Bridge Multimedia: Finding a one-stop trusted localization and video translation services provider

Bridge Multimedia is well known for its mission to support universally accessible content. Content owners, brands, and advertising agencies from across the globe look to Bridge to provide ADA compliance materials for advertising and episodic (TV) content.

Bridge Multimedia recently embarked on a global search for a full-service localization vendor that could provide unmatchable quality and a fast turnaround time. Bridge needed their provider to be equally adept at dubbing, video localization, media distribution, subtitling, captioning, and video translation services, and it was critical their vendor have both the creative and technical capabilities to achieve their vision.

After an extensive search, Bridge chose SPG Studios. “Searching for a vendor that understands the specific target market is paramount to the end-result of our projects,” said Manny Minaya, Director of Operations at Bridge Multimedia. “For example, there are a lot of shows that we produce in Spanish that are dedicated to the Latin American market. You need a vendor with excellent knowledge of this market to provide the best quality service.”

Finding the right localization services provider for target markets

Prior to SPG, Bridge worked with other vendors providing similar services, including audio description for video, captioning, transcriptions, and PDF remediation. Where SPG distinguishes itself, according to Minaya, is in the areas of (1) workflow flexibility and (2) in-depth cultural fluency. Bridge is called upon to not only deliver at a consistently high standard, they also need to shift priorities and deadlines on the fly.

Bridge has engaged SPG to deliver services for clients as diverse as Carnival Cruise Lines, the “Mi Telemundo” block of programming on NBC, and financial services giant JP Morgan Chase. Armed with a team of native translators and voice actors, SPG has completed Bridge projects in Parisian French and Latin Spanish.

High-quality video translation and localization services

According to Minaya, “SPG Studios has proved themselves as a top localization provider as everything they have produced for Bridge Multimedia has exceeded our expectations. We were very happy with the turnaround time.” He continued: “In terms of deliverables, SPG Studios is a one-stop shop. They provide all the accessibility services we need: captioning, translations, dubbing, and video graphic localization.”     

SPG Studios is a one-stop localization vendor that provides all the localization services we need -captioning, translations, dubbing, and video graphic localization. The reason why we continue with SPG Studios as our localization partner is because they produce phenomenal work, have a helpful communicative team, and meet the deadlines we need. It is so refreshing to work with a company that is so transparent and maintains such a level of quality.
