Feeling Fabulous…..

We are feeling “fabulous” after our role in the production of a major British comedy film which was released this month.  Intonation was asked to translate a few lines of script into languages as diverse as Japanese, Swedish and the Nigerian language of Yoruba for the Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.  The film is based on the BBC TV comedy series and charts the further adventures of fast-living, but now ageing, duo Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone, played by Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley. It also features supermodel Kate Moss.

Intonation’s Commercial Director Dan Peachey said: “It was a slightly unusual request but when we learned what it was for, we didn’t hesitate to accept the job, as we're such big fans of the show!”

“We watched the film through and it seems our words were used in a TV news report that went global, on a multi screen with loads of languages at the same time.” said Dan. "Via our acquisition of UPS Translations a few years back, we've a strong history of film and TV work and it's testament to our accuracy, speed and the work of our mother tongue translators that we were chosen to take on work for such a prestigious and successful British film.  However, trust and confidentiality are just as integral to the high standards we work to and  as part of the confidentiality agreement with our client, we couldn’t say anything about the film or our part in it until it was released earlier this month, but we’re very excited to have played a part in its production and made sure we had an office outing to see if we made the cut" he added.
