We Are What We Say

For a little more detail about our services, feel free to review further or get in touch to start talking.

Bad Words Labs understands that fitting your scripts into another regionalized context means adapting figures of speech, ideological expressions, pop culture references and, eventually, word choices that will affect the intonation or accents of the recorded lines that come to be. Over the last few decades, Bad Words Labs has implemented our proprietary CHIP™ (Content Has Integrity Protection) Protocol that ensures continuity in project dictionaries, consistency between translation teams and SME (Subject Matter Experts) Reviews. Throughout the process, your dedicated producer acts as a project manager, overseeing the various moving parts and eliminating potential time delays or  tedious review periods from your schedule.
