Foreign Language Subtitles – Burnt on

One method of subtitling is called burned on subtitles, which means they cannot be turned on or off and are always visible. These are also called open captions and they are part of the video file itself. Using this method means that multiple languages cannot be shown using the same file, therefore it is necessary to produce multiple versions of the video with the different languages, these can be selected by the user, for example by clicking on different links on a web page.

Closed captions are the opposite of open captions and are found on DVD’s etc. These can be switched on and off through the selection menu created in the authoring process.

On-Screen Text Localisation into any Foreign Language

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