WHAT IS A SUBTITLE?
Subtitles are text derived from a transcript or audio of the dialogue or commentary in films, television programs, video games etc and are usually displayed at the bottom of the screen and run in time with the original audio.
Subtitles can either be in the form of a written translation of the dialogue in a foreign language, or a written version of the dialogue in the same language.
Subtitles can also be written with or without added information to help viewers who are deaf or hard-of-hearing or who cannot follow the audio.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUBTITLES AND CLOSED CAPTIONING?
The difference between subtitles and closed captionig is that subtitles are intended for viewers who can’t understand the language spoken in the video, whereas closed caption services are used to communicate with the deaf or hard-of-hearing communities that may understand the language but cannot hear the audio properly.
Closed captions typically include relevant audio information as well as the spoken dialogue, for example: laughter, off-screen noises such as smash of glass in the distance. Subtitles don’t include this additional content and are simply there to translate the original spoken dialogue.
HOW DO I GET A VIDEO SUBTITLED AND TRANSLATED?
Here at Avitas we can offer a service that takes your original audio and delivers a fully timecoded burnt in subtitle file.
This is the process of listening to the original source audio and writing it down in a form that can be translated and timecoded.
Timecoding is the process of matching the transcription of an audio / video file with the timing of the original file and preparing in a certain format that can be recognised by subtitling software.
Subtitling involves using the timecoded transcription and creating a file that will overlay the new subtitles onto the original video. Often this involves creating the subtitles in multiple languages so it is at this point that the timecoded transcription is translated making sure that line breaks, metrics and timecodes are adjusted in the target language.
Once the subtitles or captions are created and finalised, these can be embedded into the original video (also known as being burnt-in) or delivered as separated files for example one per language.

These guys are life savers. We were in need of urgent translations done in 3 languages and no other agency was able to do it. Avitas responded quickly and had the project done before our deadline. We have used them ever since.
Amazing service for all our projects. We have used Avitas for multiple language projects in different domains and our clients are always left happy. Great company to work with, 5*.
