AML Global 5.0 System Benefits

The AML Global 5.0 system provides numerous benefits for our clients:

  • 24/7 Access: Our clients can request, initiate, monitor, review, and retrieve projects via password. This system and its help desk are available 24/7.
  • Security Measures: AML Global uses SSL-compliant networks to transfer and maintain files. This ensures data confidentiality. We also employ a specialized IT team to back up our servers and hard drives on a daily basis.
  • Translation Memory (TM): This feature is at the foundation of the modern translation process. By analyzing new documents for repetitive words and phrases, TM improves the consistency of your content and saves you money.
  • Usability: Translations can be submitted and received by multiple people in an organization. Each person will create a login and be limited to his or her projects. Managers, meanwhile, will be able to see everything in the pipeline. All of this is tied together with an intuitive, easy-to-use UI.
  •  All-in-One: The Portal works in conjunction with our other systems to enable clients to administer their work anywhere, any time.

  4. Log-in to see your individual projects.

CAT Tools

AML-Global utilizes Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tools to facilitate reuse of previously translated content. These tools help organize projects, shorten delivery timelines, improve translation consistency, and cut costs.


  • Translation Memory Software (TM): Translation memory software is a huge part of the translation process. It allows us to accelerate our speed while maintaining consistency. This is critical when we find the same content being translated repeatedly. Our TM tools include SDL Trados Professional and Word Fast.
  • Glossaries of Preferential Terms: Whether it’s a slogan or a tricky word, every client has their preferences. We diligently maintain our glossaries to ensure adherence to your guidelines. This allows us to complete projects faster and save you money in the long run.
  • Project Archiving: We save, archive, and backup all data using cloud technology. This is done by segmenting specific client projects by a number of searchable criteria.

Media Service

Dubbing and Voice-overs

American Language Services {AML-Global) has been providing comprehensive media services since 1985. Our linguists and production teams work with innovative technology to create high-quality videos, dubbing, and voiceovers.

Voice Over Versus Dubbing

In a voice-over, the source material can be heard beneath the newly-implemented audio. This is often referred to as “ducking” a source.  Dubbing, meanwhile, is the complete replacement of one audio source with another. 

Tools of the Trade

Utilizing our ultramodern video production studio, we can implement lip-synced voice-overs, produce regional dubbing, and even localize pre-existing graphics for your project.

 

Our recording studio features:

  • Digidesign and Shure KSM27 Microphones: These produce crisp, clear voice-overs.
  • Preamps with Onboard Effect Processors: Without these, our videos would be flat and lifeless. 
  • Pro Tools Platinum: This is the industry standard digital recording platform.
  • Whisper Room Isolation Booths: These guarantee clear recordings.

 All productions are supervised and engineered by industry professionals.

 

Subtitles

 

What Is Subtitling?

Subtitles are captions found at the bottom of media that translate the speech of the characters into onscreen text. This text can be found on everything from DVDs to cable television.

 

AML-Global Uses Top-Of-the-Line Software

You need the perfect mix of human editors, creativity, and cutting-edge technology to get subtitling done right. Luckily, it’s a recipe we learned the secret of a long time ago. On the technology front, utilizing software that allows language editing, video conversion, and video compression is a must. These support tools work in combination with the specific medium and technical elements you request.

 

We use a variety of subtitling software including:


  • Aegisub Advanced Subtitle Editor
  • AHD Subtitles Maker
  • DivXLand Media Subtitler
  • SubtitleCreator
  • Subtitle Edit
