Dubbing is a creative and technical post-production process that swaps the original language of a recording, production, game, or other content with another language. When performed by expert practitioners like SPG Studios, the end result is a linguistically and culturally authentic reproduction that seamlessly engages the viewer’s attention. From a commercial point of view, dubbing allows the author of the original content to access new markets while preserving the quality and artistry of their work.
The term dubbing is frequently described as a “lip-sync” technique. Indeed, one of the compelling qualities of dubbing is the illusion that the on-screen performer is actually speaking a non-native language. While the voice actors play a critical role in this process, much of “the magic” happens during a process called adaptation. SPG’s linguists prepare a translated script that not only captures the original meaning, but also fits the labial movements of the on-screen actors – both in duration and mouth shape. Such precise attention to detail makes lip sync the “gold standard” of dubbing.
Of course, even the most carefully prepared script requires the right voice to bring it to life. Using SPG’s proprietary talent database, clients can review dozens of native-speaking voice actors to clients to ensure the right fit for their project. Once in the studio, the selected actors are supported by both a director and a recording sound engineer to ensure the performance captures the essence and style of the original. When needed, the completed tracks are then sent to our in-house team of editors and mixers for additional processing.
