FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                          MIPCANCUN 2017

CANCUN The Kitchen will be represented at MIPCancun again this year, with Alexis Cardenas, VP International Sales, and Maritza Alvarado, VP/GM on hand to greet attendees of the three day Latin American programming, distribution and co-production event.

The Emmy Award Winning language studio will host a MIPCancun hospitality stand, specifically geared toward greeting clients and potential clients who are looking to localize their programming.

“But this year it is different,” Alexis Cardenas explained.  “We are now The Kitchen Worldwide, with Kitchen studios in: Russia; Moldova; Turkey; South Africa; Brazil; Germany; Morocco; France; Italy; Spain and South America, as well our home base in Miami. We have found that our Latin American clients do want to create localized versions of their programming for worldwide distribution and conversely, the foreign distributors want to sell their programming into Latin America.  So, as we always do, we’ve given our clients the way to do just that easily, at all of our international Kitchen locations.”

“It has been a thrilling year for The Kitchen,” Cardenas added.  “The excitement that has been generated with our ability to offer the same quality and consistency in our translation, dubbing and subtitling services in our international locations, has been overwhelmingly applauded by our global clients who are selling into multiple languages. Understanding the need to adapt to the local territory has always been a vital part of what we do, and now that we are dubbing into as many as a dozen languages for one series, understanding of the local culture is more important than ever.  Our new Kitchen’s are proud to be a part of this exciting team and we’re thrilled with the performance of all of them.”

The Kitchen is the industry’s only Emmy Award Winning language services company, having received two Prime Time Emmy Awards for “changing the face of the language localization business for ever more”, according to the Television Academy.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                   MIPCOM 2017


CANNES:  The Kitchen, the industry’s only Emmy Award Winning language translation, dubbing and subtitling studio, will be attending MIPCOM again this year, with all of their new international “Kitchen” studio execs in tow.

In the past six months, the 16 year old language studio has added “Kitchens” in: South America; Russia; Moldova; Turkey; South Africa; Morocco; Germany; Italy and Spain, with new studios to be introduced shortly.

 Yoram Chertok, Managing Director of The Kitchen EMEA is thrilled with the progress of the new division, “It’s only six months, and we’ve met our initial goal to increase languages and services for our clients by acquiring studios in territory and rebranding them as The Kitchen. And we intend to add new studios in more countries by the end of the year.”

The idea to have owned studios internationally gives The Kitchen the ability to retain competitive costs without markups, and deliver the same Kitchen quality that the studio is known for on a worldwide basis.

“There has never been a more opportune time to expand our language services to meet our clients needs,” Chertok added.  “Only 15 years ago the word ‘international ‘meant that programming was available in Spanish.  Now, when you deliver an international version, you deliver in multiple languages, and The Kitchen is poised to do exactly that.”

For more information, or to arrange a meeting with any of the international “Kitchens” during MIPCOM, please email:

The Industry’s Only Emmy Winning Dubbing Studios


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                    October 26, 2015

MIAMI/JOHANNESBURG:  The Kitchen, the industry’s only Emmy Award Winning language dubbing studios, will be returning to DISCOP Africa again this year.

The leader provider of language dubbing for the pan-African market is excited to again be a part of DISCOP Africa and is thrilled to be an important and major contributor to the success of the African television market.

 “DISCOP Africa has become one of our most successful markets each year,” Ken Lorber, President/CEO of The Kitchen, explained.  “It is an excellent opportunity for us to meet face to face with the programmers, distributors, producers, networks and studios from around the globe, all wishing to air their product on the African TV networks”. 

While The Kitchen dubs all languages, into US English, Brazilian Portuguese and Parisian French, it relies on its close association with Ear Candy, South Africa’s leading dubbing company, to provide many of the local Sub-saharan African languages

“Our understanding of the African market has given us the opportunity to lead the industry in providing localized content for all formats of programming,” Lorber continued, “however it is no secret that the telenovela genre continues to rank high amongst African viewer requests throughout the continent.  That’s why there is so much demand for the localized product, and we’re convinced that nobody does it better than we do here at The Kitchen.”

According to DISCOP, “The African marketplace is now worth HALF A BILLION US DOLLARS in annual TV content sales, twice more than three years ago”. The Kitchen’s growth continues to emulate this growth, as new studios, staff and technology continue to expand and evolve with the expanding needs of its global clients.

The Kitchen recently announced the formation of a joint venture with Cisneros Media Distribution whereby 12 new recording studios will be constructed in Venezuela for the exclusive use of The Kitchen, for Latam Spanish dubbing.  This will bring to 30, the total number of studios being operated by The Kitchen.

Ken Lorber, along with Deeny Kaplan, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing, will be on hand throughout DISCOP Africa.

Please visit The Kitchen at VB 24.

CMD & The Kitchen

Cisneros Media Distribution and The Kitchen

Join Forces to Expand Dubbing and Media Services


MIAMI – September 8, 2015 - Cisneros Media Distribution (CMD), a global distributor of entertainment content, and The Kitchen, an award-winning language translation, dubbing and subtitling services studio, today announced a strategic alliance to offer specialized dubbing services for the world’s Spanish-speaking markets, effective immediately.

Under the newly-formed alliance, The Kitchen will be the exclusive sales and marketing agent for Latin Spanish dubbing worldwide and Cisneros Media Distribution will be the exclusive provider of the voices, utilizing its large cast of actors and actresses under contract with its affiliated production companies in Venezuela.

The Kitchen will share its expertise in all facets of dubbing and its Emmy award-winning language technology with Cisneros Media Distribution.  The alliance will also allow The Kitchen to expand its offerings of post-production and media services, leveraging those services provided by Cisneros Media’s companies for more than 50 years.

“We always look to continue to diversify and strengthen our position in the industry, and through this alliance with The Kitchen, we are expanding our business model to offer additional services to our clientele; it’s a natural progression for us,” stated Cosme Lopez, SVP & General Manager of Pay TV Channels & Services of Cisneros Media Distribution.  “We’ve known of The Kitchen’s professionalism and vast experience in the language business, and we look forward to extending this alliance in the coming years.  Together, our goal is not only to become the leader in Spanish-language dubbing for the Americas, but to increase our reach and services to become the principal provider of multi-lingual dubbing in the world market.”

“While The Kitchen has always offered Latin Spanish dubbing in our Miami facility,” explained Ken Lorber, President/CEO of The Kitchen, “it was difficult to offer competitive pricing for the Latin, or Neutral Spanish markets.  Our goal, for the past 15 years, has always been to look for better ways in which to service our global clients, and we couldn’t be more excited by this new alliance, which allows us to do just that.”.

“Our Miami studios,” Lorber continued, “specialize in providing dubbing and subtitling into U.S. English, Parisian French, Brazilian Portuguese, as well as other languages. Working together with Cisneros Media Distribution, we will be able to share an abundance of knowledge, experience and talent, while offering the most competitive Latin Spanish dubbing rates in the industry, as well as other media services for the market.”

An abundance of new programming, originated in Turkish, Hindi, French, Mandarin and Korean, for example, continues to penetrate every country around the globe and language is no longer a barrier. With the proliferation of new formats and digital platforms, the need for global language services is even greater.  The coming-together of these two companies is certain to provide the highest quality and most competitively priced solutions for language dubbing.

“This is a great business opportunity for Cisneros Media Distribution and The Kitchen,” Lorber added.  “We’re offering the very best of both worlds, putting all of our services and resources into this new venture, combining the Emmy award-winning technology and language service experience of The Kitchen, and the multi-faceted and global media expertise of Cisneros Media Distribution.”
