The benefits of using GoLocalise as your subtitling service provider

Let's get started!

The Subtitling Process In A Nutshell

1. Receipt of the final video

This can generally be in any format, as long as the subtitling provider has the facilities for converting the video into the format supported by their subtitling software. It is always recommended to double check with the provider whether they need to receive the video in a specific format.

2. English Template

Usually undertaken if translation into more than one language is required.

3. Translation

Sending the English template to the linguist for translation.

4. Receipt of translated subtitles

The subtitle file is imported onto the subtitling software in order to perform final quality checks and ensure that subtitles do not exceed reading speeds or run over more than two lines.

5. Quality check

If the results of the quality checks are not satisfactory, the subtitle file will be sent back to the 
translator and necessary amends will be requested.

6. Final check and send

Sending the English template to the linguist for translation.

7. Client approval

If burning-in is also required, the client needs to approve the translation. If any 
changes to the translation are requested, these need to be communicated to the subtitler and will be implemented if they do not affect readings speeds, maximum characters per line etc. If they cannot be implemented, this will be communicated to the client and alternatives will be suggested.

8. Burning-in

Once all changes have been implemented and the final version of the translation is ready, the burning-in process (if requested) will take place.

9. It's ready

Your final video is ready, and will be delivered to you via WeTransfer, Hightail, Dropbox, FTP or another file-transfer service of your choice.

Open captions

Ready-to-use videos with burnt-in subtitles, ready to be uploaded to your website. You can customise the style and look of the subtitles (font, size, colour, positioning, etc.).

Closed captions

Subtitles that can be switched on and off in multiple languages. These can easily be uploaded to your YouTube or Vimeo videos, DVD or Blu-Ray.

Caption & Graphic Editing

When localising and translating videos (whether you choose subtitling or voice over), you’ll find that often there are several elements that need to be localised. These elements can be on-screen graphics, text and/or captions.

Our expert project managers will review the video or project file and advise which elements would be best subtitled or graphically edited. If you do not have the project files, worry not; one of our expert editors will be able to re-create the graphics, captions and titles of your video.

Our expert editors work with a multitude of software: to localise graphics we use Photoshop or Illustrator; and After Effects and Final Cut Pro to create motion graphics and visual effects.

Once all elements are in the video, and the graphic elements have been created and localised, we can then rebuild the video and export it to whichever format and codec you need.

We’ll prepare your video project for any platform, including PAL, NTSC, VOD, the Internet, smartphones, game consoles, mp3 players and tablets.

With our facilities and highly skilled operators, your videos are in safe hands!

Subtitling Case Study

Our client is one of the leading trading platforms and brokers, and they got in touch with us as a Russian subtitling agency as they were in need of our Russian subtitling services. This project required subtitles in Russian and several other languages to be added to their English videos on a monthly basis. The subtitles would then be used as scripts for voice overs in the same languages. The videos would be posted on their website and YouTube channel with the intent of reaching an international audience.

We immediately reached out to our Russian linguists to check their availability to commit to this recurring project. For consistency purposes, we needed the same linguist to work on all the videos in their language.

As these were subtitles which were going to be used as scripts for voice over recordings that were to be synced to audio, there were various technical aspects that needed to be considered for this project which complicated the proceedings a little. The linguist had to pay close attention to the subtitle reading speed, character length, and duration while also making sure the subtitles were concise, within the technical restrictions and still conveyed the message intended.

After receiving the Russian subtitles, we did our in-house quality checking of each file. Along with the subtitle file, we delivered an accompanying Word document for the on-screen text to the client for their approval. As always, they were very pleased with the results.

In the example provided, you can see the result of one of the Russian subtitling videos that we have worked on for this project.

A Brief History Of Russian

Russian is an East Slavic language and an official language in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. It is an unofficial but widely spoken language in Ukraine, Moldova, Latvia, Estonia, and to a lesser extent, the other countries that were onceconstituent republics of the Soviet Union and former participants of the Eastern Bloc. Russian belongs to the family of Indo-European languages and is one of the three living members of the East Slavic languages. Written examples of Old East Slavonic are attested from the 10th century onwards. It is the most geographically widespread language of Eurasia and the most widely spoken of the Slavic languages. It is also the largest native language inEurope, with 144 million native speakers in Russia,Ukraine and Belarus. Russian is the eighth most spoken language in the world by number of native speakers and the seventh by total number of speakers. The language is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. Russian distinguishes between consonant phonemeswith palatal secondary articulation and those without, the so-called soft and hard sounds. This distinction is found between pairs of almost all consonants and is one of the most distinguishing features of the language. Another important aspect is the reduction ofunstressed vowels. Stress, which is unpredictable, is not normally indicated orthographically though an optional acute accent (знак ударения, znak udareniya) may be used to mark stress, such as to distinguish between homographic words, for exampleзамо́к (zamok, meaning lock) and за́мок (zamok, meaning castle), or to indicate the proper pronunciation of uncommon words or names. The standard form of Russian is generally regarded as the modern Russian literary language (современный русский литературный язык). It arose in the beginning of the 18th century with the modernization reforms of the Russian state under the rule of Peter the Great, and developed from the Moscow (Middle or Central Russian) dialect substratum under the influence of some of the previous century’s Russian chancellery language. Mikhail Lomonosov first compiled a normalizing grammar book in 1755; in 1783 the Russian Academy’s first explanatory Russian dictionary appeared. During the end of the 18th and 19th centuries, during a period known as the “Golden Age”, the grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation of the Russian language was stabilized and standardized, and it became the nationwide literary language; meanwhile, Russia’s world-famous literature flourished. Until the 20th century, the language’s spoken form was the language of only the upper noble classes and urban population, as Russian peasants from the countryside continued to speak in their own dialects. By the mid-20th century, such dialects were forced out with the introduction of the compulsory education system that was established by the Soviet government. Despite the formalization of Standard Russian, some nonstandard dialectal features (such as fricative [ɣ] in Southern Russian dialects) are still observed in colloquial speech.

What our happy customers say

We used GoLocalise to voice several of our films in Vietnamese. The service was friendly and professional. Being able to attend the recording sessions gave me confidence; the sound engineer had taken a lot of time to familiarise himself with our films and scripts, and the voice talents were incredibly competent and good at adapting to any changes in the scripts as we recorded. The whole process was incredibly smooth and I felt in safe hands.
