The winner

The Agora platform, developed by Hiventy Le Hub’s R&D department, aims to combine technological innovation with the Hiventy group’s recognised business expertise. By profoundly modifying existing workflows, Agora thus aims to mutualise the manufacturing steps that are now distinct and inherent to the different subtitling or dubbing professions, to automate a certain number of low added value tasks and to enhance the work of human resources by providing them with tools that enable them to work faster and more efficiently.

The Agora platform comprises several modules:

  • An online translation tool offered free of charge to all translators working with Hiventy Le Hub: this tool gives access to all the information necessary for a perfect translation, whether for subtitling or dubbing: multimedia player, time tracking / detection, list of original dialogues, bibles and glossaries. This module also allows resources working on the same project to communicate with each other.
  • A verification tool accessible internally and externally: this tool allows the proofreading of dubbing scripts and subtitle files as well as the final verification of dubbing and subtitling, with the possibility of adding annotations and corrections in real time.
  • A workflow creation and management tool to adapt to the specificities of each project and each customer, allowing to define the sequence of all production tasks and to assign jobs to resources.
  • A dashboard to have a real-time overview of the progress of the work.
  • A set of automatic verification tools to remove a number of problems on the files created: readability for subtitling, inconsistency between the translation provided and the information given in bibles and glossaries, etc.

All the work is carried out in an environment that guarantees the perfect security of the content: all the actions carried out on the platform are logged and therefore traceable. Agora can be interconnected with existing systems, thus enabling the reception of source material and delivery to end customers to be automated.

The innovation of the Agora platform allows Hiventy Le Hub to :

  • Reduce production lead times by ensuring rapid production start-up and smooth workflow
  • To offer a single contact person to its customers for contact details for a large number of multiple tasks
  • Ensuring the quality and consistency of all translations for subtitling and dubbing
  • Offer competitive rates

Thanks to Agora, the Hiventy group’s know-how in dubbing, subtitling and delivery to broadcasters and digital platforms is made available to customers worldwide.
