Subtitling

What is it?

Subtitling is the process of adding text to video or audio to reflect speech and sounds within the content. When matching subtitles to specific time markers, this is called spotting. Once subtitles have been completed, they are often either used as files to be loaded on top of videos, or are encoded (or 'burned') into a video, meaning they can't be separated from the content.

What we offer

We subtitle:

  • For the hearing impaired

  • 'Audio-only' content

  • Content with multiple speakers

  • Video game dialogue

Optional services:

  • Spotting

  • Encoding

Subtitles can come in lots of different forms, though the most common is simple .srt or .ass files that attach to or can be burned into videos. While this is our primary service when it comes to subtitles, we can also work with video game dialogue and proprietary software. We're always happy to use new tools and we learn quickly.

We are also in the process of acquiring transcription tools and can tend to requests for this service depending on the software required.
