Dubai language solutions provider Tarjama has selected the SubtitleNext and Next-TT platforms from Profuz Digital to optimize subtitling, translating and localization services, along with further reinforcing security. Founded in 2008, Tarjama is a pioneering language technology firm that offers a wide variety of linguistic services that includes translation, localization, content creation, transcription, subtitling and strategic advisory.
SubtitleNext offers real-time and offline subtitling and captioning for all media formats Next-TT combines SubtitleNext’s functionalities with Profuz LAPIS, into what the company says is one powerful hybrid technology-base.
Founder and CEO of Tarjama Nour Al Hassan says, “Tarjama uses a hybrid model that controls the speed of our innovative proprietary technology. Paired with the accuracy and creativity of expert linguists, it enables subtitlers to deliver quality content to companies at phenomenal speed, and efficiency. The fact that the Profuz LAPIS technology within Next-TT allows companies of all shapes and sizes to access projects at any given time, from anywhere, and facilitates collaboration among clients and staff, was a major draw. Next-TT can also be customized to produce targeted management and efficient workflows.”
Security is also of paramount importance to Tarjama and was a vital factor in their decision-making process. Nour Al Hassan confirms, “After extensively researching many cloud-based subtitling and workflow management platforms, we made the decision to invest in Profuz Digital’s SubtitleNext and Next-TT platforms as they fulfilled all our requirements and ticked all the right boxes. As a company, we opted to pivot from single-license desktop subtitling applications to more accessible cloud-based subtitling tools. So, not only does this shift bring convenient benefits, but more crucially, security.”
“Particularly when employing freelance linguists,” Nour added, “it is imperative that we ensure security for our clients, many of whom entrust us with sensitive material that might not yet have been aired or hit cinema theatres yet. So therefore, the possibility of security breaches would have disastrous consequences, and it’s a risk we are never willing to take. That’s why we chose SubtitleNext and Next-TT as trusted technologies that we can safely rely on in this area.”
CEO Nour Al Hassan founded Tarjama to meet the growing demand for excellence in translation services that cater to the unique multicultural environment of the Middle East. By tapping into an undervalued network of exceptional and talented women, she challenged conventional norms and went on to excel in the translation and localization fields. Under her leadership, Tarjama has set new standards in the industry through the company’s commitment to quality, speed, and extraordinary linguistic value.
