Translation & Script Adaptation
Translation for subtitling is not simply creating a word-for-word translation of an audio script and then placing it as subtitles at the bottom of the screen. A script which will be used for subtitling will need to be adapted to meet the subtitling parameters.
The translator has to understand the content they are working on, retain the meaning of the original version and convey that in another language, all the while taking into account reading speed, characters-per-line limits, timing and positioning.
