A call from space – a radio- and advertising spot produced by our student interns

Aliens contact a space agency but there are major communication problems… That’s how the radio- and advertising spot produced by our two student interns Nikolas and Michael under the direction of Creative Director Arthur, 3D-Animator Manuel and Sounddesigner Steffen at alugha starts. Here’s a brief report on their work. Of course, we are not going to withhold this cool video from you afterwards 🙂

The wait will soon come to an end: Game of Thrones Season 6!

Since the last episode of the fifth season aired in June 2015, fans of the fantasy series Game of Thrones have been eagerly waiting to know how the series will continue. Now, the wait is almost over: on April 24, 2016, the sixth season will premiere. To make us look forward even more to it, a trailer has finally been released – of course, it’s multilingually available here. We have put together the most important background information about the series and the known information about the new season so far (including filming locations and new characters).

Synchronisation of videos: process and equipment

We at alugha have made it our goal to provide you with as many multilingual videos as possible! However, only very few videos are available in multiple languages so we dub most of them on our own. Graphic designer Arthur, 3D animator Manuel and video- & photo pro Kasia are our experts in this area. For those who would like to dub videos themselves, we interviewed the three of them about the most important things in the process of dubbing and the required equipment 😉

Video & SEO at its best – a new update brings the boost on Google

When it comes to updates, you haven’t heard from us in quite some time. The reason for that is not that we don’t have anything to report. No, the reason is rather that we will roll out a major update for you very soon. It is so big that it even makes us go all dewy-eyed :).

While we are working with the core team on the big update, every week numerous improvements make it into the live system in our deployment rhythms. In addition to the mobile view of virtually every page of alugha, the performance was also (in some cases significantly) improved. When it comes to languages, we currently also step on the gas: thanks to our newcomer Jonas (we will introduce him in detail), we really caught up on the languages Spanish and French, and a lot of the interface is finally available in those languages. But that is only the beginning because soon EVERYTHING on alugha will be multilingual in German, English, Spanish and French.
