Hi all! Anyone have a good closed captioning service that adds captions in Spanish with a Spanish VO? We have two videos, one in English and one in Spanish, and they both need captions. I have the scripts but don’t feel comfortable and we want to make sure it is correct. Side note: We were going to use Rev but they don’t do captions in Spanish and one of their sales people just sent me a very snarky email.

Trump is a branding and marketing genius. I mean, how else do you explain a two-bit con artist from NY being able to convince small town Karens and Kevins, esp in middle America, that he’s their savior? As much as I despise him, I have to give him credit for hoodwinking so many people.

Client onboarded a new manager almost a year ago but the resource still pulls the “I’m new card.” I am SO tired of their growing attitude to let things crumble instead of escalate, have tough conversations, and pretending they don’t know what they are doing when we’ve been having the same conversations 20 different ways and behind closed doors they understand and discuss the issues. Personal life is a mess and I am losing patience bringing solutions and documenting all of these issues.
