Welsh subtitling for The Electoral Commission

Welsh subtitling for The Electoral Commission*

The Electoral Commission is an independent body set up by the UK Parliament. They regulate election finance and also set standards for well-run elections. They support healthy democracies based on trust, participation and no undue influence.

They created an informative video encouraging and reminding the Welsh public how to and when to vote in the National Assembly for Wales and Police and Crime Commissioners elections. The video involved a Welsh signer educating the deaf and/or hard of hearing audience about the elections.

The Electoral Commission came to us seeking Welsh subtitles to add a further communication channel in their video. We transcribed the English speech, translated to Welsh and condensed the translation to fit within the screen limits as subtitles. Finally we burnt-in the subtitles.
