SUBTITLING SERVICES

This service is for individuals, businesses, media corporations and educational institutions with video content requiring subtitles in English.

I also support language and access service providers with subtitling services on a freelance basis.

What is pre-recorded subtitling?

Pre-recorded subtitles (known as captions in the USA) make your content’s audio accessible to those who are deaf or hard of hearing, speak a different language or watching it in public.

Adding subtitles involves four key steps.

  • Creating time codes so your subtitles appear at the right time.
  • Turning your audio into text. This may involve a translation or adding sound labels for SDH.
  • Proofreading your subtitles for quality and accuracy.
  • Burning your subtitles onto the video.

Compelling

Keep your viewers interested. 80% of US consumers are more likely to watch your whole video if it has subtitles. They’re also more likely to remember information, like, share and click subtitled films.

I was hired to deliver Spanish to English subtitles for a client presenting their research at a virtual conference. The presentation was well received by the English-speaking audience and my client was invited to collaborate on a new project off the back of its success.

How it works

Book me for projects of all sizes, from one-off videos to large-scale commissions or ongoing retainers. I’m often available for quick turnaround projects, get in touch to discuss my availability.

I work with professional subtitling software Ooona and WinCaps.

Pricing

The cost of subtitling depends on the type of subtitling and the total number of minutes in the source video. The time and level of skill it takes to create subtitles vary for timed English to English subtitles, timed Spanish to English subtitles, SDH, or translation only. There is a minimum project fee of £40.
