Audio Translation and Subtitles for Historic Scotland

Historic Scotland is an executive agency of the Scottish Government and is responsible to Scottish Ministers for curating Scotland’s historic landmarks and environments of historical significance.

They ask Matinée Multilingual to produce a DVD for the Urquhart Castle cinema room, but the challenge was to author a DVD that allowed up to 3 subtitle and 3 audio streams to run simultaneously in different languages. This so they could cater for large groups of tourists of different nationalities.

From the original Scottish voiceover we produced the audio translations and subtitles in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Japanese and our video editor produced a DVD which would allow multiple combinations of languages.  This meant the DVD could have English, French and German audio streams, with German, Italian and Japanese subtitles all at the same time!

Urquhart Castle is stunning and we’d recommend a visit, particularly to the cinema room!
