We enable this with the best in technology. The results are fluent, high-quality and engaging. That’s why we provide complete localization services to most of the global top-50 companies.

Our localization services

Our comprehensive  services begin with great content. At the next stage, we translate any content. This will be done accurately, or with full creativity. Finally, we provide a full testing and review process, which enables us to deliver high-quality materials in any media.

Translation

We bolster the efficiency of our translation with cutting-edge technology. But at the heart of our translation, we have qualified, in-house professionals who provide a human touch. This process ensures consistency, speed, and above all, quality.

Transcreation

When it comes to selling your product in new languages, you need to define your message. This, rather than word-substitution, is the starting-point. At Alpha, we then work with the client to ensure that their brand is being represented strongly. In addition, we look at the culture of the target language. All of our transcreators are bicultural as well as bilingual, meaning they can give their insight. They are also trained in marketing, or in creative writing. That means that they are fully equipped to work with you, creating engaging content that sells.

Multilingual copywriting

Our talented copywriting team offers fresh, high-quality content in any language. They are also skilled at providing creative edits to existing translations. The end product is not only accurate; it delivers your message into every language. Moreover, it has all the style and fluency of the original. This is perfect for marketing and creative content. But it is also equally useful when it comes to academic, games, and creative content.

Post-editing

Alpha’s localization services turn machine translation into readable, meaningful content. It is therefore the perfect approach for large-scale projects where value and speed are of the essence.

Technology and MT

We believe that localization should be aided by technology as much as possible. As a result, are up to speed with the latest developments in translation tools. Full integration with all CAT tools also come as standard. Furthermore, Alpha is deeply involved in research into neural machine translation. We see NMT as the future of certain fields of translation.

Consultancy

We have built up a huge knowledge-base during our thirty years in business. That means we can offer advice on every facet of localization. We can give insight into new markets, guidance on approaching censorship, and consult on specific cultures.

AV & Multimedia

Localization doesn’t stop at the written word. Aided by our own in-house studio, our audio-visual and multimedia localization services can provide dubbing, subtitling, and amended graphics in any language.

Design & Layout

Marketing materials, HR documents and educational materials rely on highly designed visuals, and there are other instances where the look is important. Our design and layout services can amend positioning, sizing and text orientation to fit your target, while keeping the design as striking and appealing as in the original.
