Because there is no single video format that is supported by every media playback device (eg Flash, Silverlight, HTML5, Quicktime etc), a website may need to stream the video in multiple formats.  The same applies to subtitle files.  No single subtitle file format will be suitable for every media playback device.  You need to discuss with your webmaster or IT department as to what media playback device will be used so the appropriate subtitle file format is provided to support that device.   Read more

The Process

You upload your video files via file sharing such as Dropbox, a URL or any suitable file sharing platform.  The video is downloaded by our team, the transcript is typed and proof read.   The completed and proofed transcript is returned to the client as an electronic Microsoft Word document.   The transcript is then imported into the subtitling software and time coded to synchronise the text with the video file.  The subtitle files are exported depending upon which media playback device you intend displaying the video on.  To support a variety of playback devices your provider may need to stream the video in multiple formats which will need multiple subtitle file formats.  Please discuss this with your webmaster or IT people about the specifics of the media playback devices and the subtitle file formats  they will require.  Read more.
