Elevating Video Editing Localization: The Quvideo Case Study

Our Client

QuVideo is a technology enterprise that has revolutionized the digital content creation landscape with its suite of innovative video editing tools designed to cater to amateur and professional editors alike.

With a global user base of over 1.3 billion across 200 countries. Quvideo offers various products, including VivaVideo, VivaCut, and Tempo App, each tailored to meet specific editing needs. VivaVideo simplifies the editing process with user-friendly tools, making it accessible to beginners, while VivaCut caters to professionals seeking advanced editing features. On the other hand, Tempo offers quick and stylish editing solutions through its range of templates, ideal for users looking to create engaging content swiftly.

As QuVideo expanded its reach, the challenge of localizing these dynamic tools to resonate with a diverse, global audience became apparent. This required a deep understanding of cultural variations and technical specifics beyond mere translation to ensure a seamless and enjoyable editing experience for users worldwide.

Video editing localization

As QuVideo expanded its reach, the complexity of localization grew, presenting unique challenges:

  • Expanding into New Markets: Initially, localization was limited to basic app UI string translation through a third-party platform. However, as QuVideo’s global presence expanded, the demand for comprehensive localized content surged.
  • Building an In-House Team: Recognizing the importance of localization, QuVideo established an internal team in 2020 to enhance localization standards and manage quality across key markets.

  • Specialized Partner: In addition to building an in-house team, QuVideo sought a third-party localization provider capable of offering translation services and support in augmenting the in-house team with localization talent.

Despite QuVideo’s robust toolset, the challenge of localizing their sophisticated software for a global audience was formidable. The initial localization process, limited to app UI string translations, was managed via a third-party platform. This approach soon proved inadequate for QuVideo’s expanding global footprint, especially as they aimed to make their advanced features accessible to users worldwide.

Recognizing the need for a more integrated localization strategy, QuVideo partnered with Clearly Local, seeking a strategic collaboration to scale its localization efforts efficiently and uphold its commitment to excellence in every market.
