Subtitling and Transcription Service
Subtitling

Subtitling is the process of adding written text onto visual media, where the written text is a transcription of the spoken text. This type of translation is also known as audiovisual translation or multimedia translation. The most common forms of subtitling are English captions on a foreign language film and subtitles for the hearing impaired. The latter form allows deaf and hard of hearing people to watch normal TV programmes and films. We specialise in both foreign language subtitling and subtitling for the hearing impaired.

Subtitling is a specialist skill that requires patience and attention to detail. It involves transcribing the spoken text into written text and then either translating or reformulating the language, using a variety of translation/reformulation techniques, to a) fit on the screen, b) appear on screen for long enough to give the viewer time to read and process the information and c) appear on screen quick enough to keep up with the spoken text. 

 

We follow industry standards for spotting and we use industry standard subtitling software, allowing us to work with several different formats. We work in the following language combinations:

English > English for hearing impaired

BSL > English

BSL > French

French > English 

Transcription 

Transcription involves converting spoken or signed text into written text. Transcriptions can be used to prepare subtitles or to keep a verbatim record of the speech.

 

We offer a transcription service for English and French.
