Professional Chinese Subtitling Services producing both open and closed caption Chinese Subtitles in both Mandarin Chinese and Cantonese Chinese. Open captions are also known as burnt-on subtitles and are on-screen at all times and cannot be switched off.

Adelphi always produces all their Chinese subtitles in-house and never outsource any of the work, therefore, maintaining confidentiality as well as quality. Adelphi produces Chinese subtitling in all video formats from videos such as Mov, MPEG-2, WMV, flv, etc.

Subtitle styles
These Chinese subtitles were ‘burnt on’ to the video (also called open captions) and because of the nature of the video we used white text with an outline or shadow. There are many styles of subtitles to display on your video. We can advise you on the best type for your video and produce samples for you to choose from. We can also help on the best Chinese fonts to use as well.

Chinese Subtitle Translations – SRT and STL files

In Chinese subtitling translation, our Chinese audiovisual translator would create translated subtitles in the target language directly from the source video. Our subtitle translator would create SRT files that are be used to produce burnt-on Chinese subtitles. The STL format allows you to configure most subtitle settings, and change the settings on a subtitle by subtitle basis and are often used with YouTube videos.

Adelphi Studio is part of Adelphi Translations Ltd. a full-service translation agency, not just producing Chinese translations but also Chinese typesetting and Chinese voice-overs. Using Adelphi’s Chinese translation services for subtitling, quality and timing can be closely controlled throughout the project, ensuring that your subtitles will always be ready to publish on or before your deadline.

We also provide Chinese subtitling for many translation agencies around the world and are happy to work with their translations. As some languages must use specific fonts in order to work with the subtitling software, we can consult with you about your needs and advise you of all of your options. Adelphi is a proud member of the Association of Translation Companies (ATC).

Chinese On-Screen Text Localization

As well as producing the subtitles we can also localise any on-screen text, motion graphics etc. into Chinese. Depending on the complexity and how the original text was produced we may require the data package it was made in.

Transcription Services

We also offer a transcription service, to provide time-coded scripts for translation. The length of many languages will expand when compared to original English and care must be taken in the translation to keep the true meaning of the English, while staying within the time frame allowed. We sometimes have to edit the English to make a more concise version of the original, this is because the written version of many languages is much longer than the English and would not fit in the allocated time-slot. Of course, the edited English is approved by the client before translation into Chinese.
