AMPERSOUND Translate Media, your new audiovisual translation service
We have great news to share with you: the arrival of AMPERSOUND Translate Media, an innovative project in Granada (Spain) that sets out to focus primarily on audiovisual translation, subtitling, narration and dubbing. AMPERSOUND is a group of professionals with a broad range of experience across the field of audiovisual translation and dubbing who have joined forces to create and lead this enterprising initiative that promises a one-stop service and simplifies the whole translation process.
The name comes from a play on words that melds the symbol & or ampersand (which represents a union of elements) and the word sound. The latter is something that is omnipresent in our field of expertise, and we work alongside dubbing and voice-over professionals. This symbiosis of concepts is also reflected in the design of our logo.

Objectives and advantages of AMPERSOUND
The professionals who take part in the process of translating an audiovisual project usually work alone, which does little to promote communication or ensure the seamless progression of the process. At AMPERSOUND we wanted to bring together each one of the cogs in the machine, to have more direct contact with the end client and be able to control the entire process so as to provide a fast and personalised service.
And so, one day we asked ourselves: ‘What about fusing the fields of translation and dubbing in a way that enables us to efficiently manage the entire project cycle?’ And from that was born the idea of AMPERSOUND, a collective project that connects every contributor and which places translation, subtitling, localisation, accessibility, narration and dubbing professionals at your disposal.
Our commitment to you:
1. To provide you a one-stop service and oversee the entire process, from the creation of the original script to the translation and on to the dubbing. Our goal is to deliver you a finished product that’s been reviewed from beginning to end.
2. To provide the widest and most up-to-date range of services, which can all be adapted to your requirements. No more going from one company to another – we handle the linguistic side as well as the technical and audiovisual aspects.
3. To have the facilities necessary to offer these services, which is one of the primary innovations at AMPERSOUND. We want to be your trusted partner, and for that reason we have our own dubbing studio plus the technical team to bring your audiovisual projects to fruition.
4. To keep up with the demand for audiovisual content. With the vast demand for films, TV series and video games, our industry is booming. Video-on-demand (VOD) platforms – such as Netflix, HBO or Amazon – have revolutionised the market. There is an ever increasing amount of content for translation, subtitling or dubbing, and AMPERSOUND is here to satisfy that need and rise to the challenge with the level of professionalism that you demand.
6. To work with the finest professionals for each project. We are conscious of the importance of delivering the highest-quality product, and for that reason we rely upon genuine experts for each one of the services we provide, all endorsed by years of experience in the industry. Relax and enjoy: your linguistic and audiovisual project are in safe hands.
