Dubbing – Scripts and Translation

Dubbing scripts are special screenplays for lip-synch voice recording. These texts need to preserve a conversational tone and find the unique slang and speaking style of each character. The challenge is to maintain the style of the original dialogue while creating an independent, natural-sounding German version of the film.

A dubbing translator must balance the many levels of meaning contained in the original script, and should ideally offer multiple solutions to problems, as well as additional research and comments.
