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). There is a variety of styles of subtitles we can produce. We can advise you on the best option for your video and even produce samples for you to choose from. We can also offer various font samples to select.

Urdu On-Screen Text Localization

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

Urdu to English Subtitling

Through our Urdu to English Subtitling Service, we produce SRTs and open- and closed-caption subtitles in English from your original Urdu video. We manage the entire process for you from start to finish, including transcription, translation, proofreading and subtitling.

Urdu Subtitle Translations

To produce the Urdu subtitle translation, we would use a Urdu audiovisual translator who would create translated subtitles in Urdu directly from the video in the source language. The subtitle translator would then produce an SRT file that is then be used to make burnt-on Urdu subtitles.

Adelphi Studio is part of Adelphi Translations Ltd. a full service translation agency producing not only Urdu translations but also Urdu typesetting and Urdu voice-overs. By having both the translations and subtitling produced by Adelphi we are able to keep quality control high while maintaining confidentiality. Adelphi is a member of the Association of Translation Companies (ATC). Using Adelphi’s Urdu 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 Urdu subtitling for translation agencies around the world and are happy to work with their translations.

Transcription Services

We also offer a transcription servicefor those customers lacking a transcript of their videos. We provide time-coded scripts of your videos ready to be translated. We will then use those translations for the subtitle text, sending you the files at each stage of the process for you to review and assess.
