Hello all.

I have a video in Hebrew, subtitled in English and translated into Spanish. One of the characters is Spanish and she calls her boyfriend "mi amor". Would this go in italics?

Also, she sometimes speaks to him in Spanish, but the audio is not very clear. The Spanish subtitles are a translation of the English ones, not a transcription of what the girl is saying. Should I subtitle what she says or should I just skip the subtitles when she speaks Spanish, since it's not DHH?

In my opinion, if you have been provided with a master sub, that's what you are supposed to translate. Forget about the audio. If you notice a mishear in the Spanish audio, report it to the client and let her decide if she wants to do anything about it.
