Slovak subtitling for Hays iPhone 6

Slovak subtitling for Hays iPhone 6

Hays Group is a human resource and management consultancy with a presence in 49 countries. This video is about an iPhone App they created called ‘Styles and Climate’ which helps users to improve their leadership skills long term.

To broaden the audience, they decided to translate the video into 9 languages, including Slovak. Subtitles were chosen by the client due to the smaller investment required, but we would normally recommend voice-over for a video with an off-screen narrator.

As you can see, we had to move the subtitles from the standard position so they wouldn’t obscure the animation which posed a challenge for our Slovak subtitler and engineer. We had to reduce the size of the font and condense the translation a bit more than we’d normally like, and for this reason the video is best viewed in full-screen. The customer was delighted with our solution, which helped to keep their project in budget.
