Why Us?

Human-led | Instant Feedback | High Quality Solutions | Fast Turnarounds

Employing a loyal group of English-as-a-First Language (EFL) sub-contractors in South Africa – a population known for its strong work ethic – AV-TEXT has successfully been providing industry-leading asset management, market research, financial communications, and video production clients with all their transcription, translation, and subtitling needs.

With a focus on service, we seek to form close working relationships with our clients, so that we can tailor our services to their requests on-the-fly and provide their transcripts, translations, and subtitles to their high standards and expectations fluidly.


AV-TEXT was formed as Alternative Solutions in 2011 by two partners in Cape Town, South Africa. Having combined industry experience of 20 years, they decided to launch a boutique company to serve Business-to-Business (B2B) clients with a human-led, high quality, and customizable media conversion service. After 8 years of growth and success, Alternative Solutions, with their loyal B2B customers, decided to re-brand as AV-TEXT to better capture their service offering for the global marketplace.


AV-TEXT believes in service and by maintaining human contact throughout the process, from the initial job request to the final product, we aim to make our clients feel confident and comfortable in the products they’ve ordered. By getting to know our customers, we believe that we can quickly tailor our services to best suit their needs no matter how out-of-the-box they might seem.


AV-TEXT’S focus is on quality and by using qualified, experienced, and diligent professionals, our goal is to provide our clients with an accurate and customized service on fast turnarounds fluidly and efficiently.

Business Solutions

With our specialization in working with B2B customers, AV-TEXT will work together with our clients to best provide a scalable solution for them and, in turn, their clients. Whether this be from the service itself, from the formatting to the costing, or to the final product delivery and billing, we believe we can exceed any of our clients’ requirements.
