    First you will need a fully time-coded transcript of the audio on your video. We can produce this and create a frame-accurate document that perfectly matches the voice track to the visual cues.

    Subtitle creation and delivery

    Once the translations have been checked, double checked and agreed, our subtitlers will synchronise the on screen text with the video. We can also translate and edit on-screen titles where necessary. Then we’ll output the completed file to whatever file format you require, or we can burn in the subtitles to your video and deliver the completed project as a video file.

    Malaysian subtitles for Cape plc

    Case Study

    Matinée Multilingual were selected by Cape Plc to provide Bahasa Malaysia subtitling services for a series of 5 promo videos talking about the ‘integrity and values’ which are very important to Cape Plc’s business.

    The videos totalled just under 8 minutes, and the client selected style option 2 for the Bahasa Malaysia subtitles. We were also asked to move the subtitle layer whenever captions appeared on-screen, so the subtitles didn’t obscure them – as you can see in this example.

    Our process was as follows: First we transcribed the English audio and on-screen text. After approval, we produced the subtitling translations in Bahasa Malaysia, condensing the Bahasa Malaysia translation where necessary to fit in the screen safe area. Finally we synced and burnt-in the Bahasa Malaysia subtitles and delivered as an MP4 file.

    Fantastic to work with

    The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

    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.
