Word Wizards provides professional subtitle services for our clients in the video and media production industries. Subtitles are very similar to closed captions and are sometimes referred to as “open” captions. The difference between subtitles and closed captions is that subtitles are burned into the video and can not be turned off. Closed Captions however, can be switched on or off and exist in their own separate media channel. Subtitling can be a tedious and painful process, which is why our clients let us do it for them.
Why Use Subtitle Services
Adding subtitles to video can be useful for many different functions. The primary use of subtitles is to provide translations of foreign language dialogue on screen so that the audience can understand dialog in other languages. Subtitles can also be used to clarify what is being said for the audience if the audio is poor, there is noise in the background, there are heavy accents, ext… Subtitles also function as simple “open” captions for media that may be played with the volume low or off in public places.
