ITC Global Translations offers multilingual audiovisual subtitling services for your international video communications.
Why you need video subtitling
Subtitling is an audiovisual technique where text is synchronized with the dialogue and displayed at the bottom of a video screen.
There are a couple professional subtitling techniques:
– Standard subtitling transcribes spoken words, including narration.
– Coded subtitling meets the needs of people who are deaf and hard of hearing by transcribing all sounds and noises to make the video easier to understand.
Since 85 percent of videos are watched without sound on social media, subtitles are an essential component of your digital communication. They help people understand your content better and allow you to reach a wider audience, especially when the language of subtitles is different from the original language.
Subtitling can be broken down into several steps. First, the video must be transcribed and timecodes must be created. Timecodes make it possible to locate an element (phrase) in a video. They make it easier to synchronize subtitles. Next comes the subtitle translation and adaptation step where the final adjustments are made before the subtitles are embedded in the video.
While the process of creating and embedding subtitles requires meticulous work, subtitling is the easiest technique for reaching a wider audience with your videos.
