Abstract

This book contains chapters on the history of subtitling and its future applications, on translation, readability and layout, on subtitling for the hard of hearing (and even for the blind!), on subtitling equipment, multilingual subtitling and DVD. But the main part of the book deals with the practical aspects of the subtitler's work: the do's and don'ts of subtitling, how to time and edit subtitles to achieve optimal quality and maximum viewer acceptance.
