What is video subtitling?

Subtitling is a process whereby the spoken information in a video is adapted into a clear, concise text form. The aim is to preserve the authenticity of the speech.

As its name suggests, that text is placed at the bottom of the video and must be perfectly synchronised with the words being spoken.

Why subtitle a video?

The main characteristic of subtitling is the change from spoken language to written language, keeping it as natural as possible, and using the same linguistic register. This technique allows the content of your video to become accessible to the largest possible number of people.

Subtitling provides a response to a growing need among the world’s population, with its recent massive adoption of mobile technology (smartphones, tablets, laptops). This means everyone can access video material at any time, without turning up the sound (public transport, waiting rooms, noisy environments etc.). For example, 85% of Facebook videos are viewed without the sound.

Subtitling will also allow your video to be used on multiple channels: website, social networks, exhibition halls, company reception area etc.

Coupled with a multilingual translation phase, your subtitled video will cross whichever borders you want to widen your target audience even further.

How much does it cost to subtitle a video?

Cheaper than voice dubbing, subtitling remains a complex exercise due to the many constraints that have to be met (number of characters per subtitle, reading time for the average reader, adaptation of subtitles etc.).

It uses a variety of techniques, namely: transcription, translation and insertion of the subtitles into your media.

The cost will vary according to the duration of the video, but also according to the source and target languages.
