    English subtitles for Lush TV

    Case Study

    Lush TV required an English subtitling service for their latest video about “The Perfume Society” event in London.

    Matinée transcribed the audio, cued the time-codes and condensed the transcription for subtitle use i.e. so that it would fit in the screen limits. Finally the English subtitles were synced to the video and burnt-in to an MP4 file.

    A short history of the English language

    English is a West Germanic language and it is spoken in Great Britain, the United States, Canada, Australia Ireland and New Zealand. It can also be found in the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. After Mandarin and Spanish it is the most spoken language in the world and it is also taught as a second language. It was due to the formation of new colonies abroad that the English language spread to places like North America and Australia.

    English was introduced to Britain by the Anglo Saxons, who came to England in the 5th century. At that time the language was called Old English. Although Old English would be extremely difficult to understand today, there are many words in our present day vocabulary that come from this language.

    In the 11th century after the Norman’s invaded England it was called Middle English and Chaucer was popular at this time. At Court French was spoken and many French words are now included in the English vocabulary.

    In the 15th century the language became known as Early Modern English. At this time the printing press was introduced and the St. James bible was printed. Shakespeare was busy writing too at this time.

    Late Modern English came into being in the 1800’s and contained a wider vocabulary and is recognisable today.

    Matinée Subtitling Montage

    This video montage features a variety of subtitling projects we have completed in a number of languages. It also shows four different ways in which the captions can be displayed on screen.

    Choosing the best way to display your subtitles on-screen will depend on your video content, and how much information you need to show in the captions area. When you send us your video, the first thing we’ll do is review the content, and advise which subtitle style we think will work best for your production.

    However, if you have another captions style you prefer, perhaps to match a template you have used before, then we’ll work with whatever you feel works best for your video.

    The Big Word

    Friendly and efficient service

    The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
