Lyric licensing service LyricFind open offices in India and South Africa to provide lyrics in many new languages.

LyricFind hold licenses with some of the top major publishers and clients such as Universal Music Group, Sony, Warner, Google, Amazon and Deezer. The new Indian team will provide lyrics in Hindi and Marathi. The South African team will be providing lyrics in Afrikaans, Zulu, Sotho, Xhosa, Tsonga, Venda, Tswana, Northern Sotho, Swati and Ndebele, with more African languages coming later this year. LyricFind’s Vietnam team will also cover new languages including Cantonese and Mandarin.

Many music companies see these territories as very important due to a sharp growth in streaming activity recently and expected over the coming years.

We have the largest publishing team in the world, and the highest number of professional lyric editors in the business. The reason major partners like Google and Amazon turn to us as a primary lyrics provider is for the proven quality our process generates, and our focus on building a substantial local presence and expertise around the world to ensure that.
