You want your message to have more impact.

You would love to improve your positioning on platforms and search engines so that your video is displayed before others.

You want to reach as many people as possible. And this includes:

  • viewers who speak other languages,

  • people who are in a quiet place and cannot use the audio,

  • and deaf or hard of hearing people.

If you are wondering how to get all that in a single action, you just found the answer: subtitling.

“They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But the truth is that without the words your image will not go very far”.

Transcribe and subtitle your videos to:

  • Improve the positioning of your videos with keywords

  • Increase views worldwide
  • Promote viewing with the audio deactivated
  • Improve the accessibility of your videos for deaf or hard of hearing people

“Although I have no problem in communicating in English on a day-to-day basis, I wanted to make sure that my letter of introduction when contacting international contributors was as professional as possible, which is why I sought the help of an expert. Thanks to her, I have the peace of mind of knowing that my texts are professional and have an adequate tone that, as a non-native speaker, I would have been unable to give them. Now, not only are my texts understood, but they also sell. Núria offers speed, professionalism, and a service that, even if you are not a large company, makes you feel equally important. Your projects are welcomed with enthusiasm. A service 100% recommendable!”

“I work for an NGO and we needed to translate something from English to Bengali, but were finding it difficult to find a trustworthy translator working in this combination. We got in touch with Núria’s company and they got straight back to us with a quote for the translation. The quote was actually very reasonable. They told us that they only work with natives, which made us trust them even more. I can recommend them without a doubt, because they work quickly and efficiently and, above all, because they treat the whole process very professionally. The quality of the translations is always very high, and they deliver on time”.

“We were looking to break into the Italian and French markets, and needed a translation service that would get the translations back in the agreed time, dealing with one single point of contact and without too much time spent emailing backwards and forwards. The translation of our website into two further languages has meant we are now active on two new markets and have been able to create synergies with other companies working in those markets. Other providers sent more literal, stilted translations, but they were missing the key marketing element we needed. Núria’s company, however, gives us high-quality translations that demonstrate a knowledge of the sector, as well as reliability, efficiency, speed, availability and trustworthiness”.

How much does it cost to subtitle a video?2020-10-06T10:22:41+02:00

Therefore, it is a good idea to request a personalised quote and not just the price per hour or minute.

Subtitling is charged by the hour.

They are also commonly called subtitles for the deaf.
