Subtitling services

Making it to international market with original media content comes at significant costs, not limited to translation, unfortunately. Having the text on hands, you’ve got to figure out how to present it properly and nicely, adding the picture.

Modern video clips do not necessarily involve background audio and dubbing. There is a cheaper way to reproduce translation, namely subtitles. If you order them from Universal Media professionals, you’ll receive a comprehensive product with a text conveying all required messages and complementing visual picture.

The wrong way to create subtitles

Computer programs, processing video underway and outputting subtitles automatically, is not the best solution for high-quality video with big potential. The thing is, such services tend to make speech recognition mistakes. However, even if you take the text to the program’s memory, subtitles could have wrong positioning on the screen or ill-timed length. Manual work of specialists guarantees faultless and good-looking subtitles.

The perfect option

It’s not enough to take the things that happen in the shot into consideration while creating high-quality subtitles. Subtitle specialists should have comprehensive understanding of the finest details, specific for the foreign language, as well as its perception by international audience. For example, Asian subtitles can be placed on the side of the picture. If you work with Arabic language, you have to take your time and break down the text while breaking lines, otherwise even the most accurate translation will look ridiculous to the audience.
