SRT subtitle translations

A popular way of translating subtitles is to produce SRT files. Some clients want only the SRT file so that they can produce their own subtitles while others want us to provide the finished video for them. This format is supported by most software video players and subtitle creation programs. SRT files are simply text files listing subtitle information: the number of the current subtitle, the start and end times when the subtitle should appear onscreen, and up to two lines of subtitle text.

In SRT subtitling translation, our audiovisual translator (SRT file translator) would create translated the subtitles in the target language directly from the source video or from a script provided.

SRT file creation

There are many subtitle file formats, such as SRT, STL, and VTT, etc. The file format depends on the platform used to display the subtitles, but SRT files are the most commonly supported. SRT files are time-coded documents that can be imported into the subtitling software, which then puts the correct subtitle in the correct sequence. After this, the SRT files just need a quick tidy-up to ensure the reading speed and subtitle presentation are optimal. These SRT files can then be used to create burnt-on Arabic subtitles.

SRT and STL files are also used to provide subtitles for YouTube, Vimeo, etc. By using these types of files, viewers have the option to switch on subtitles for different languages by clicking the CC  button in the bottom right-hand corner. CC stands for “Closed Captions”.
