ARABIC SUBTITLING & CAPTIONING: A PROMISING FUTURE
Throughout history, text translation was the only medium that brought cultures together, by converting literary works, science logs and researches, history and poetry from their original languages to others. When satellite and Internet became the de-facto stage where multimedia and entertainment content are being transmitted, inter-language subtitling became the favorite instrument to bring different cultures together. Any content owner knows the importance of subtitling when it comes to offering his programs to new markets. At Screens, we go even further by putting our knowledge of cultural values and language expertise at the disposal of our clients, becoming more of a consulting partner than service provider.
