Discover the best practices for localizing video content

Our recent series about Rich Media and Video Localization provides information on the importance of globalizing your video content.

Best Practices for Video Localization

There are many reasons why videos are a vital part of your marketing assets: 79% of consumers would rather watch a video to learn about a product than read text on a page. They tell your story, create emotional connections and teach visually.

Unfortunately, many organizations do not fully capitalize on their existing video content and create videos for only specific markets. Or they may not use the best techniques for localizing a video.

Discover the best practices for successful video localization so you can make the most of this engaging content globally.

Watch our latest on-demand webinar, "Confessions of a Video Editor" to discover how localization decisions are made on the different video types.
