At SDI Media we place huge value on the translator freelance pool, and we appreciate the competitive nature of the industry. As such, we fully support the idea of a standardized way to engage pre-qualified resources as it will save us time and effort in training and recruiting, as well as offering increased opportunities to translators. The universities also benefit by having a path for their graduates to become immediately engaged in their chosen profession. Helping to develop a trusted network of subtitlers is important for the overall health of our industry.

We think the need to find qualified resources as the industry evolves is becoming more and more complex and expensive in many ways. We believe Ooona has achieved an answer to this growing issue for localization agencies by creating a neutral database with professionals. The Poool provides us with solutions that are neutral and efficient.

The Poool will not only be a resource for agencies, but can help audiovisual translators and editors build a predictable income by finding work across agencies. In turn this will help retain skilled professionals globally and prevent potential talent crisis in the localization and accessibility industry.
