‘This is our unique place in the universe, everything we do revolves around language. So you’re not just getting studio capabilities when it comes to media processing. You're getting the full Plint language localisation expertise in the package,’ says Johan Gladh, Head of Plint Studios.

While Plint’s early days focused on localisation, we have not only evolved with the industry, but helped to lead and shape what customers come to expect.

And now, more than ever, that’s a ‘one-stop-shop,’ according to our head of Plint Studios, Johan Gladh. Which is why after being invited to take part in the rigorous testing process, we succeeded in becoming an NPFP in 2018, opening up a dedicated end-to-end media processing studio thereafter.

Johan starting working with us in the studio back when the market’s focus was on authoring DVD’s and Blu-ray. Since then, he has helped to shape and build Plint Studios into what it has become today.

‘The NPFP accreditation was the spark that we needed to move our Studio from the ever-expanding Gothenburg headquarters to its dedicated space in Borås,’ explains Johan. ‘It evolved as we wanted to solve a larger piece of the puzzle for our clients. 10 years ago we were delivering a subtitle file. Now, we deliver everything together and with 25 different outlets to deliver to, you need to be on top of it. At the Studio we’re able to ensure that content is not only translated and localised to the highest standard but, that the audio and video is of pristine quality too. Delivered to spec for whatever the client needs.’

Like our other offerings, the studio doesn’t just solve the puzzle for our clients, it streamlines workflow too — with our clients enjoying one project manager for the entire process. And with a heritage rooted in storytelling, everyone at Plint is just as passionate about the role that they play.

‘We’re all film nerds. We love watching film and series, so it’s cool to be able to work with this type of content and customers like Netflix,’ says Johan. ‘To be part of the global chain of events, to help more people see these fantastic things, it’s very humbling.’

There are currently only 27 accredited NPFP’s around the world, with Plint being the sole NPFP in Sweden. While Plint Studios is located in Borås, our HQ is in downtown Gothenburg. We also have an office in Los Angeles. At Plint, we bring together state-of-the-art technology and talented linguists, to enable companies and individuals to share their stories — wherever, whenever.
