Though the average filmgoer may not ever know it, subtitling is an art unto itself?not simply a translation. Adding subtitles to a film requires an innate sense of timing and an acute understanding of the tenure, resonance and theme of a film. During a scene of dialogue, for instance, the subtitles may be timed after the spoken dialogue or even before as to properly punctuate the scene visually, and thematically.
A good subtitler understands the film, both languages, and the theme that must ultimately be conveyed?which is very important since certain words and phrases simply cannot be translated verbatim. Like a film editor, the subtitler must decide what dialogue is necessary, and what can be trimmed so that it translates properly and fits on the screen in the time allotted.
Though film companies may have facilities for subtitling, it is wise and preferred to have a tried and true translator wielding the artistic rendering of the dialogue for audiences who speak a different language. American Language Services (AML-Global) has a variety of translators for a wide variety of languages who have experience, dedication, and a passion for the art of subtitling. Let AML-Global take your filmic vision around the world and beyond.
