Regardless of whether a site uses international domains or works from a single hub, international ecommerce means that with the right tools, any website should be able to attract a global audience Videos are great for SEO and by using video translation and subtitling, audiences across the world can find your content.
Foreign Subtitle Burning
For sites with a number of international domains, foreign subtitle burning can be a good option as potential customers can immediately access video content relevant to them. Subtitle burning also includes more specific formatting and placement changes when compared to basic .srt subtitling.
When a website runs from one central domain (e.g. .com), closed subtitle translation is preferable, so users can choose the language relevant to them. Video subtitles can be exported as .mov, .mp4, .avi, .wmv and more…
Alongside our closed captioning services, we are also able to translate websites a range of different languages.
