    Subtitle Translations and Subtitling Services


    Same-Language Subtitles

    These subtitles are not translated and are primarily intended as an aid for people who are hard of hearing. They are the transcription of the audio with some minor editing to omit any unnecessary words.

    Multi-Language Subtitles

    These subtitles are transcribed into a foreign language, allowing foreign viewers of the video to understand what is being said, even if they don’t understand the original audio.

    Expert Closed Captions

    Captions are similar to same-language subtitle videos in that they are intended as an aid for the hard of hearing. Captions, however, include non-dialogue audio for example “(laughs)”.

    Subtitle For Videos and Movies

    We can save your video subtitling into a vast array of file types. For example:
    (.srt), (.stl), (.scc), (.ass/.ssa), (.xml), (.ttml), (.qt.txt), (.vtt), (.dfxp), (.smi), (.csv), (.sub), (.rt), (.sbv).

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Why use a professional translation service for subtitles?

    Using professional subtitle services makes sure that you get the high quality subtitles you need for your video project. While it can be tempting to use closed captioning software and translation software to get your subtitles translated, using professional translators means you have a minimum risk of errors. Our expert subtitle translators also have a deep understanding of their language and the culture you are getting a translation for, meaning that you are guaranteed to have the perfect subtitles for international audiences.

    On top of this, as a professional subtitle agency, we can offer multilingual subtitles in over 150 languages, all under one roof. Rather than having to find translators for each language you need subtitles in, we can help with all your needs after one simple inquiry.

    Can you maintain humour in subtitle translation?

    Depending on your video content, we can help get the perfect tone and style for your needs. We know that for some videos you need to keep the humor intact, and we can help. Our expert translators only work in their native language. This means that they will have the best knowledge of the culture and area you are trying to send your content to, meaning that they can make sure the humor is maintained from your source language to your target language. This does not always mean keeping the words exactly the same – in fact, computer translation software will translate subtitle transcripts word-for-word, which can ruin any jokes in the content. Instead, our expert translators will localise your video subtitles so that they are perfectly understood by your target audience.

    Why use a native tongue translator for translating subtitles?

    We only use native tongue translators for all our professional services for translation projects, including subtitling and closed captioning. Native tongue translators only translate into a language that they speak natively. This gives them the best accuracy, with the fewest mistakes. It also means that they have the best knowledge of cultural nuance in your target audience, helping you reach any international audience with subtitles that they will really resonate with. And because we have expert translators in over 150 languages, we can get you perfect translations into multiple different languages at the same time.

    Can you translate subtitles?

    Yes, as a leading subtitle translation company, we offer professional subtitle translation services in over 150 languages. We can offer subtitle translation services for standalone subtitles or subtitle file types that include time stamps – for example an srt file. We can also offer translation of transcripts for any video or audio file. We can even translate audio straight to translated subtitled without transcription in the original language, which can be great if you only have a foreign language market in mind.

    What is the difference between subtitles and translation?

    Subtitling does not have to be in a different language. There are plenty of reasons to get an SRT subtitle file made for a video even if you do not need it translated. Subtitles can help people stay focused on the content, especially in loud areas – this makes subtitles very useful for videos that will be shown in public spaces such as hospital waiting rooms or bars. Subtitles can also help make sure that people who are deaf or hard of hearing can access video content without difficulty. Subtitles can also help make sure that your video is found by search engines. Of course, if you need translations for your subtitles, we can help give you great foreign language subtitles that will help you reach a wider audience.

    Why are subtitles different from audio?

    While audio is a great way to get points across, subtitles can be useful to make sure that people can fully engage with your video content. Subtitles can be used to more easily scan through the spoken words of a video, which is especially useful in industries where time is valuable, such as for financial institutions or law offices. Getting a quality subtitle service can also make content more accessible to people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

    How long does subtitle translation take?

    It can be hard to gauge how long a subtitle translation project will cost until we have seen it. Once you request a quote, we can give you guidance on how long the subtitle translation process with take. We can also offer express translation services and subtitling services for if you need an urgent subtitle project completed.

    What specialist subtitling services do you offer?

    As an expert translation agency, we have experts with experience in different fields, meaning we can offer an accurate and cost effective solution for any videos you need subtitled, including medical content, legal content, and more.

    What is more accurate subtitles or dub?

    The accuracy of subtitling or dubbing all comes down to the subtitling service that you use. As long as the people doing your subtitle or voice-over have the language skills to make a great translation, the accuracy should be great on either. Beyond that, the difference is primarily down to personal preference.
