Translation Subtitling: What is it and Why is it Important?

Capital Captions works within transcription, closed captioning and subtitle translation services. Today we are having a look at translation subtitling. Specifically, what it is and how it can help your business grow.

What Is Subtitle Translation

Subtitle translation is the art of translating one video language into another through written text subtitles. In order for this to work effectively, you therefore need to use highly efficient and trained linguists. A professional translator is required in order to comprehend the complexities of translating different kinds of content. Subtitle translators work across a range of genres, so work hard to keep a structurally sound translation to ensure video sync. However, they also must work to retain the meaning of the original text within the foreign subtitles.

Are you are an international brand or a small start-up hoping to make the next leap to international clients? Whatever the size of your company, subtitle translation can really open up your global potential. Capital Captions are in a prime position to offer subtitle translation services for your audio visual projects.

Why let Capital Captions Translate your Subtitles?

We hire specialist linguists from around the world who are experts in translating both video, audio an text. We fully vet our translators and proofread and watch back all of our foreign subtitles on completion to ensure the highest quality.

Our subtitles are written by professionals who never use voice recognition or automatic timings. Instead, our human translators use specialist software to subtitle your videos, transcribing every nuance and timing foreign captions to perfection. Once a subtitle translation is complete, a caption writer will then export the foreign subtitles   in a variety of different formats to suit your projects. 

Some of the languages we work with include: 

  • French subtitle translation
  • German subtitle translation
  • Italian subtitle translation
  • Dutch subtitle translation
  • Chinese subtitle translation
  • and more…
