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).

Translating subtitles online – Why a subtitles translator?

We understand that, given certain content and target audiences, you may wish to go a little further than our transcription services: our dubbing services may be exactly what you need to give your film or video an authentic feel in the target language. We have a vast number of different voices available for each language, covering many regional accents.

Again, we know that the key to any convincing dubbing translation lies in the experience of our professional subtitle translators who understand the specific demands of a given form of translation, and audience expectations relating to the format or genre of the work in question.

Our voice-over artists are also able to provide voiceover translation to direct every element of your video to your desired target audience. While other voiceover services often rely on generic, unspecified knowledge, we pride ourselves on providing an efficient, accurate service that is tuned to the unique aims and requirements of your content.

If you are looking to subtitle YouTube videos, films or any other type of video content, we can provide you with a professional subtitle file and video subtitles in multiple languages.

Can you translate subtitles?

Subtitles can be translated, though it is a specialist field requiring some special skills and applications. Subtitles can be translated from an SRT subtitle file, or they can be translated directly from the video into a written transcript, properly timestamped for the subtitling. It is important to make sure that an SRT file for translation is as accurate as possible to ensure you get the best final product and the most natural-sounding translated subtitles.

What is the difference between subtitles and translation?

Subtitles can be translated, so there is sometimes not much difference between them – a properly translated subtitle will help ensure that someone who speaks a different language can properly understand your video content, whatever that video might be. However, subtitles can also be vitally important for people who are deaf or hard of hearing, since they can help them engage with the video in a way that dubbing or second-language audio tracks will not. In these cases, you not only need a translation, but you also need the subtitle to make sure that the content is accessible.

Why are subtitles different from audio?

Subtitles are the written word version of the speech that is in a video or audio file. In this sense, they should be accurate to the audio. However, subtitles are very useful for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. While you may have an audio translation for your content, having a properly translated subtitle helps you reach out to people who may not be able to use the audio. You can also request translated audio descriptions, which describe what is happening in a video for people who are blind or partially sighted.

What is more accurate subtitles or dub?

Technically a subtitle and dubbing can both be accurate. However, dubbing – adding a second spoken language option for a video, for a different language – often involves changing the language used to better match the mouth movements and timings of the video. This means that often subtitles are more accurate and true to the original text.
