Actually, I'm doing a research thesis on audiovisual translation, and I would like to know the professional softwares most used in professional institutions in USA, France, Spain and Russia.
For example, in Belgium the most used software is Swift, it is used in the RTBF, the official national channel, and more other institutions are using it, it is also the most used in teaching at Belgian universities. In Netherlands both Swift and Spot are commonly used.
I hope I can get answers from members who may have an idea about this.
From what I know, we use FAB for TV SDH in Russia. Other than that, I think it's mostly free software, since Russia is a dubbing/voiceover country.
