How do film subtitles work?

Depending on the nature and content of your material, subtitles are an increasing popular way of conveying what an individual, actor or character says by translating spoken words into text that is normally displayed across the bottom of a screen or visual display interface. Many films, documentaries and TV shows use this format to accurately convey what is said.

Subtitles - original voices are retained

Subtitling works by displaying the translated words on the screen so that they appear at the same time as the words are spoken in the source language. They are used to explain what an actor, presenter, spokesman or individual is saying and must be correctly synchronised with the correct point in the film’s soundtrack to be effective. The text is also localised to fit the action but within the nature and period of the film and its cultural context. Subtitles usually have to be condensed to fit available time and space often because spoken dialogue is faster that our ability to read text and also because some languages expand in translation.

Voiceovers – instantaneous and quickly absorbed

Voiceovers serve the same purpose as subtitles but the style of delivery is completely different with the original speaker’s voice being replaced by a mother tongue speaker whose voice is laid over the soundtrack. Sometimes the complete soundtrack is replaced. Like subtitles, voiceovers are synchronised with the on-screen pictures and original soundtrack, although they generally require less condensing than subtitles as they are delivered at the rate of speech.
