I am not sure if I set up this question correctly but there was a want ad regarding subtitling and it mentioned having the equipment for it. What equipment is needed for subtitling, how much does it cost and where can you get it? If there is any other information you can volunteer regarding this, I would really appreciate it

There is a decent website called \"The beginner\'s guid to subtitling\" - mainly geared towards the anime subtitling crowd, but you can get all the info you\'re asking for there:

Great subtitling equipment Jan 3, 2002

The Florida Chapter of the ATA - FLATA sponsored a presentation by Carlos Contreras of TM-Systems (http://www.tm-systems.com), and was I ever impressed by their device!



Subtitling is a fascinating field, but the slave-wages turned me off to it.



Carlos\' software made me consider it again. If you are serious about it, contact him (carlos_contreras@tm-systems.com). His software makes it simple and straight forward to convert tapes into digital images and work with them directly into the computer, separate character lines, time speeches and scnese, . . .



But, I repeat, the rates paid in Miami, Venezuela, Colombia and Brazil, the markets I know a little about, are laughable at best. No, that is wrong: they make you cry!

subtitling stuff Jan 3, 2002

HI,



What you need for subtitling is a TV and a video recorder, which can \'jog\' the to be subtitled material frame by frame. This video has to be very advanced, because you also need the sound to match the frames (with a normal recorder, you hear about two seconds no sound)

Second you need software. The simplest software is available for about €1600,- More advanced software (where you do not need a TV or so), which can be bought for about €4550,-.

Time to save some money I think...





Best regards

Sigrid
