Hello all,


I've just started as a subtitler and I would like to know what should we input at the end of a movie. Until now I just subtitled from Eng-Port, but the other way around is new for me, so I'm looking for the correct words. Is it: Translation and Subtitling (followed by my name)?

Thank you

It depends Sep 17, 2007

Hi, Raquel,

It depends on the agency you're working for. They should give you indications about that. However, if it's up to you to decide, here are the two ways I normally use with the agencies I work for:

Translation and Subtitling
Name

or

Translation and Subtitling
Name of translator / Name of Company


Good luck!

Elisabete

It depends, yes. Sep 17, 2007

Hello.
You say you just started as a "subtitler": are you really doing the subtitling process, I mean, putting the subtitles in a DVD or 35 mm. motion picture? Don't think so.
If you only translate:
Translation or English version: xxx
Subtitling: xxx Ltd.
Good luck to you.

Actually, yes Sep 17, 2007

Hello Juan,

I´m not inserting the subtitles in a DVD, I actually insert them on the movie at the T.V. station. So I do the subtitling besides the translation.

Thank you Elisabete, that is what I was thinking.

Confusing. Sep 17, 2007

You say you're NOT inserting the subtitles, then you say you DO insert them.
If you only do the translation, and other people do the technical subtitling process, you're not subtitling. Just translating. I may be confused, though.
Regards.

Subtitles by:
XXXXXXXXXXX

Translation:
XXXXXX XXXXXXX

I was clear enough. I don't use DVD Sep 18, 2007

Dear Juan, I don't subtitle the film to a DVD. I translate the movie and then at the T.V. STATION I do the subtitling using the software Panda and the machines to burn the subtitles directly on the movie. Got it? So, yes, I do translation and subtitling.
