Hello everybody,

I have been translating for a local subtitling company for almost three years in Taiwan. I want to find one in North American or in Europe that does subtitle translation from English to Chinese on a regular basis.
Does anybody know any?
Thank you very much !!!

Captions, Inc., in Burbank, California Nov 3, 2005


One firm which provides such multilingual subtitling / recoding / reformatting into Chinese and other languages is Captions, Inc., based in Burbank, California, USA.

As a freelance language specialist, I have done several into-Arabic subtitling and re-coding projects on films and VTs for that firm. I performed subtitling and re-coding tasks on-site (Captions, Inc. provided me with both useful technical training and an expert mentor/coach while I became familiar in using some of its new gear and processes) and later in my home office.

As I recall, Captions, Inc. has done into-Chinese post-production work -- VTs for advertising and other commercial promotions -- into Cantonese, Mandarin, Fukien, Chinzhao (sp.?), and Hong Kong dialect.

Good firm, good people there.

Recommend Captions, Inc. highly and with confidence.

You definitely would get your money's worth with Captions, Inc., especially because of that firm's impressive and rigorous in-house QA / QC / IVV review conducted as part of its normal production model.

Hope this helps you find the technical support you need on time and in your budget.

Please contact poster by e-mail Nov 3, 2005

Hi all.
I would like to request that if anyone else has information on subtitling companies that they'd like to share with adrenaline, to please reply by personal e-mail via adrenaline's profile.

I'm requesting this because of the forum rule regarding comments on outsourcers (which can be positive or negative comments).
Thank you for your understanding.
