    Seçil Atalay


    Born in 1984 in Berlin, Germany to Turkish immigrant parents, I grew up bilingually. I developed a passion for languages very early on, my teachers noticed this and recommended I learn as many languages as possible as early as possible. By the time I started university, I was speaking Turkish, German, English, French and Spanish fluently. I professionally learned Italian at university and became a French & Italian into German and Turkish translator. My other big passion (movies) made me find myself in the localization industry where languages and movies meet. I started as a subtitle QC at Deluxe in London after graduating from university and had various other roles after that, still within Deluxe (Translation Coordinator, Account Coordinator, Bookings Executive). After that I started working at VSI London as a Project Manager for the Netflix desk. The Turkish studio that VSI were using for all their Turkish dubbing work (which they later bought and turned into VSI Istanbul) was co-founded and managed by my now husband with whom we started our own dubbing & subtitling studio in early 2017 (LOKALİST). We’ve been in business ever since working with known vendors on exciting titles, but we also do theatrical dubbing.
