Tips for subtitling

  • Always check if the subject has already been translated into the language you require, this might mean there are established ways to spell product names etc. Where possible, provide a glossary list of these, so we can inform our translators.
  • Make sure the video you provide us with is final, as all of the translated content and timings will have to be redone at an extra cost if they change in the middle of the project.
  • It is always best to transcribe the video with time-codes in the original language first and only then translate, so only one set of time-coding needs to be done. If not, then we have to time-code each language individually, meaning extra costs and longer turnarounds.
  • If you’re planning on shooting raw footage in a language you are unfamiliar with and editing it later, please ask your guide or interpreter if they can give you a written transcript of everything that was recorded.

Subtitle styles
These subtitles were ‘burnt on’ to the video (open captions) and due to the nature of the video we used a transparent band behind the text for optimum readability. There are various styles of subtitles we can produce. We can advise you on the best option for your video and even provide samples for you to choose from. We also offer samples of fonts to choose from if required. Subtitles usually have a character limit of around 44 characters and 2 lines per subtitle.

Burnt on Malay Subtitles

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

Malay On-Screen Text Localization

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

Malay SRT Subtitle Translations

For Malay subtitle translation, we would use a Malay audiovisual translator who will create translated subtitles in the target language directly from the video in the source language. The subtitle translator would produce SRT files that can then be used to create burnt-on Malay subtitles. SRT files are time coded documents that can be imported into the subtitling software which then puts the correct subtitle with the correct sequence, after this, there is only a visual tidy up required.

Using Adelphi’s Malay translation services for subtitling means 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 Malay subtitling for 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).
