The evolution of technology over the last decade has been a major catalyst for a revolution in the subtitling industry, completely changing the editing process.
Until a decade ago, subtitles were laser-printed onto cinema film and sent as a finished product to clients or production companies, whose involvement in the process was limited. If a client wanted to check the subtitles and do any editing, they had to go to the subtitling company, sit with the subtitling staff and do the editing there together, entailing a great expenditure of time and labor.
Today, we have the ability to add subtitles directly into the video online during the editing phase. This gives clients full control of both the written content and the visual elements of the text. Clients can now be more closely involved in the process and enjoy greater flexibility in making desired changes to the text.
