Case study: Malaysian subtiltling for Cape plc

As one of the UK’s premier subtitling companies, 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 when title & name captions appeared on-screen so the subtitles 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 to MP4.
