Disclaimer:  This error code is in the process of being deprecated. You will begin seeing this error split between Missing Content - Conversation Event & Missing Content - Narrative Text Event for specificity.  

Error Code:

Requires Forced Narrative

Description:

Certain lines, text, or scenes require translation in order for the audience to understand the plot.

Solution:

This error code is exclusively issued against Secondary Audio assets. It indicates that during QC it was determined that on-screen text or dialogue needs to be translated within a Forced Subtitle file for that particular language.

You should not encounter a Redelivery Request for a Secondary Audio asset where this is the only error code listed.

If however you see this error listed against a Secondary Audio asset which has multiple errors listed then you can ignore the "Requires Forced Narrative" issue and address the other errors instead.
