Fun but... Sep 30, 2010

I have been doing subtitling for almost a year now (after a long pause). I actually like it because I get to watch movies that are often still playing in the theaters.icon_biggrin.gif There are also other reasons why I like it, one of them being the challenge to fit the sentences into the allotted time and some other constraints that you don't usually have when translating a regular text. Nevertheless, there also he downfalls that I may share during the conference. I also want to learn from others who have experience in this field or maybe there are other agencies that are interested in me and my service. Who knows?icon_smile.gif

Extremely low rate Oct 1, 2010

My language pairs can be in the emerging markets. Of course, demands are rising but translation rates decline as rapidly as translation quality. Subtitling is the last market segment I prefer to enter, hmmm.
