News : Transperfect Expands Dubbing Capabilities With Acquisition of Madrid-Based Lassostudios
New York, NY, USA and Madrid, Spain, Oct 22, 2019 -- TransPerfect, a provider of language and technology solutions for global business, announced the acquisition of Lassostudios, a Spanish dubbing provider. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Founded in Madrid in 2011, Lassostudios specializes in dubbing, voiceover, subtitling, audio description, closed captioning, and other post-production services, delivered primarily to entertainment clients in Spain and elsewhere in Europe.
TransPerfect has grown in the media space, including recently announced deals to acquire Lylo, Sublime Subtitling & Translation, and AGM Factory. The company has invested heavily in providing dubbing, voiceover, and subtitling services, including AI-powered solutions, to clients through the Media.NEXT solution. Acquiring Lassostudios complements the company’s existing network – which includes TransPerfect’s Barcelona-based production hub and studios – by introducing a second facility in Spain.
