Samtext delivers high-quality subtitles in many different languages. We have translators who know the original languages so well as to not misunderstand what has been said (something that is not always the case). They are also experts at shortening down the text to the right reading times while preserving the meaning.
There can be a big difference in quality when it comes to the timing of subtitles. You may have experienced the effects of bad subtitling for yourself: the text may disappear before you can read it, linger on the screen for too long, or even be out of sync with the action.
Good subtitling is “invisible” – the viewer’s attention should be focused on the film, not drawn to how it has been subtitled, and our project team has the technical equipment and expertise to provide just that. As with every other type of translation work that Samtext does, subtitling projects are always proofread by a second translator.
There are many types of subtitling software, and numerous file formats. Samtext’s technical platform is called EZTitles, which can convert film and text between all of these formats and platforms. Just tell us what you have and what you want back from us. We can also deliver the film with the subtitles already added.
