    2M produced a multilingual multicultural voting system for Victorian Electoral Commission into 19 CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) community languages including voice recordings and on-screen instructions.

    2M provided the Victorian Electoral Commission with voice recordings for their voting app in 19 different languages to assist Victorian ethnic communities with voting. We also provided translations in the 19 same languages of the on-screen instructions for the electronic voting system. The Victorian State Elections were held on 29 November 2014 and if you were voting in Victoria that year, you may have benefited from their advanced multicultural voting system.

    Listen to the following instruction “To start voting, place the candidate list under the scanner, or if you want to change to full audio voting, press FOUR fingers on the screen.” in 19 CALD community languages.

    The Australian Government’s Seasonal Worker Programme is an initiative that provides Australian employers with reliable returning workers from Pacific Island countries and Timor-Leste to meet peak seasonal labour demands that are otherwise unmet by local Australian labour. The programme assists employers in the agriculture sector and in selected locations in the accommodation and tourism sectors.

    2M provided translation, DTP and voice-over services in 10 languages: Bislama (Vanuatu), Fijian & Fijian Hindi, Gilbertese (Kiribati), Samoan, Solomon Island Pidgin, Tetum (Timor-Leste), Tok Pisin (Papua New Guinea), Tongan and Tuvaluan about the programme to inform Pacific Island and Timor-Leste participants. In close cooperation with the Department of Employment and in-country counterparts, our team translated important resources directed at workers who come to Australia as part of the programme. This included scripts and synched voice-over recordings for the “Working and Living in Australia” video DVD which provides helpful information to participants e. g. the Australian culture, budgeting, employment conditions and arrangements, work health and safety, visa obligations, and taxation and superannuation. See below a short clip with excerpts from 5 of the foreign-language voice-overs produced in our dedicated recording studio.

    Dupont’s mission was to reduce security risks by 60% and comply with health & safety regulations. This was done by dubbing Dupont’s series of security videos into the local language of the country where they were operating in. We showcase you PNG Pidgin operations with the instructions dubbed through voice-over into PNG Pidgin (Tok Pisin). The message gets through much more effectively in the native language, and the likelihood of safety warnings being absorbed and adhered to is much higher.

    Gold Coast based video production agency Platinum HD was asked to produce video content for Villa Blue Waters who wanted to increase their sales and target Russian buyers for this estate development. 2M produced the Russian voice-over, and the video content could now be used to effectively reach the Russian buyers. This, in turn, produced a sharp increase in enquiries and interest in the development with subsequent successful sales.
