VoiceQ is a native and cloud-based software platform used for localization and dialogue replacement of film, gaming, TV, and video, enabling efficient, precise synchronization and quality performance.
The company was formed in 2003 to meet the need for dubbing children’s television into the indigenous language of New Zealand – te Reo Māori, where lack of infrastructure called for digital solutions. This led to the development of VoiceQ as an innovative software application that is now scaling rapidly in response to explosive demand for media content that meets language, culture and accessibility needs.
VoiceQ automates the dialogue replacement process for ADR, Audio Description, Dubbing, Voice Over and Subtitling. The practical application of the user interface and feature set has been shown to improve work efficiency and quality by up to 50% compared to traditional workflows.
With the media industry shifting to collaborative processes delivered on a global scale, our latest R&D focuses on integrating localization solutions, cloud management, and database delivery. VoiceQ's agile R&D strategy captures the voice of the global market and transforms this into real tools in real-time.
Every year on 6 continents, 28 languages, 30 countries, and over 200 studios VoiceQ is used to curate an estimated 3.5 million hours of content with clients ranging from global localization businesses to high-end independent specialists.
VoiceQ Writer is a native macOS software application designed as an all-in-one scripting management tool for use with VoiceQ Pro. The application enables writers, translators, adaptors and directors to have full control over scripts prior to recording.
VoiceQ Writer can import over 15 different script file types, including PDF, and automatically synch or create timecodes for translation and adaption in seconds. Competent users can adapt up to 80 scripts lines per hour or 30% faster than traditional methods.
The ability to visually compare the script adaptation with the media file provides an incredibly precise “word level” guide for the actors, directors, and technicians, and can be used to complement traditional ADR methods.
