The Challenge

In adapting its show Forensic Files from English to Italian, FilmRise faced a unique challenge. Not only did it need to dub 100 episodes in less than 5 weeks, it also needed the help of human adapters who had both Italian linguistic skills and knowledge of forensic terminology.

One of the distinctive challenges revolved around the diversity of content within each episode, as each presented a unique criminal case. Consequently, FilmRise faced the intricate task of finding and coordinating human adapters capable of not only demonstrating proficiency in Italian linguistic skills and an understanding of forensic terminology but also embodying the ability to lend distinct voices to an array of characters across 100 individual cases.

Deepdub’s Solution
