Subtitling

Share the story

Telling a story in a new language is a difficult task, especially if it’s in the form of subtitles. There’s a lot to consider: accuracy, timing, relevance and emotion. But it’s made more challenging if you decide to do it in multiple languages, from different locations across the world, against the strictest deadlines and expectations. For VSI, it’s business as usual. 

We are specialists at handling multilingual subtitling projects, translating spoken language into written language while taking into account existing audio and visual information. We go a step further with SDH and closed captioning, giving more than 466 million hard-of-hearing people the chance to enjoy popular entertainment. We subtitle everything: film, TV, marketing content, commercials, games and more. Our dedicated in-house teams of linguists work with the latest software and techniques to produce large volumes of work that never waver in quality. Just to be sure, we exercise a rigorous quality control process to guarantee accuracy and precision before delivery.

For over 30 years, VSI has been a leader in subtitling and the winner of several industry awards. Our global network of facilities means we are available around the clock and capable of producing results in a very short time, all coordinated centrally for convenience and clarity.

Whether you need English subtitles for your latest Japanese blockbuster, or closed captions for your breakout Polish drama series, our highly-skilled team are primed and ready in state-of-the-art facilities.
