Translation by native speakers

Accurately and quickly translate animated, fiction and documentary films, commercials, lectures and other audiovisual works into the language of the target audience and are attentive to the nuances of the content.

Professional subtitles

The subtitles are embedded according to the international standard ESIST, which incorporates the best industry practices in the field of ease of perception of textual information by the viewer sitting in the cinema. We know what size and color should be the font, where and how much to show the subtitles on the screen, so as not to distract the viewer from the content of the picture.


We can calculate the exact cost and terms only after reading the film.

How to make subtitles for the film

Subtitle production requires to pass through three steps, described below.
Step 1: Text transcription
For both translation and setting subtitles, you need a transcript or dialogues list of the film, including all screen captions and titles. If you don't have them, we will help with deciphering the video sequence.
Step 2: Translation
The film text is translated into the target language, usually English. We send the finished translation for approval in a Word document. We are well aware of the peculiarities of subtitle translation, so the film does not have to be “read” from the screen.
Step 3: Subtitles
We put the agreed version of the translation into subtitles, simultaneously editing it for ease of perception and compliance with standards. Often, to speed up the process, we combine translation and installation into one process.
At the output you'll get a file of subtitles in the *.srt format (on request — in any other). If necessary, we embed subtitles in the video (a mandatory requirement for participation in film festivals).

To order translation and subtitles

For the manufacture of the dialogue, the installation sheet and decryption from you will need a video with the final installation in viewing quality.
