  • July 4, 2012 is an excellent resource for individuals who are hearing impaired, have a film with bad audio quality, or are studying foreign films. This website provides subtitles for nearly any movie, as long as the movie is released on DVD or VHS. This tool is great for film students or simply a hobbyist who enjoys watching independent films and wish to know the exact phrasing of the movie. Many people use this tool when researching movies similar to a movie that may be composed at a later date of the same genre.

More – Translate Your Subtitles

  • March 11, 2011

Viki.comViki is an online community for translators that has ties with broadcasters and media producers from all over the world. These producers and broadcasters enlist the help of Viki members in order to have subtitles created for their shows, documentaries and features.

The whole world is mapped by Viki. Subtitles for shows from the US are created at the same pace (and with the same dedication) as subtitles for shows from Europe, Asia and Latin America. Overall, more than 150 languages can be translated by members of this community. These include everything from English, Spanish, French and Italian to Japanese, Korean and even Klingon (!).

The Viki community can be joined at no cost. In addition to submitting all the basic particulars that are always asked when signing up for any online community, people are requested to specify both their first and their second languages. This will let others know exactly whether to approach them for specific jobs or not, without needing to dig that deep for that information at all.

More – Download Free Subtitles

  • December 20, 2010

FreeSubtitle.comOn this site you will be allowed to download and upload the subtitles to go with all the latest TV shows and movies. FreeSubtitle is putting together a truly multilingual database, with languages as diverse as English, Russian, Finnish and Chinese being already supported (and all seeing a lot of activity, too).

The contents of this database can be browsed by carrying out a keyword search, and the most popular shows and movies are all highlighted on the homepage. So are the subtitles that have been added more recently to the site, and the ones that have seen the biggest number of downloads.

This site is free to use, and open to just anybody. You are not required to sign up in order to download anything, and it is not necessary to sign up for an account in order to share a subtitle that you have created and that you want to have shared with everybody. Subtitles are uploaded to the site in a mere couple of clicks, and everybody is then able to download them and offer their own feedback.

More – Subtitling Every Online Video

  • October 5, 2010

UniversalSubtitles.orgUniversal Subtitles is an initiative that is as interesting as it is ambitious. The aim of this new site is to eventually collect subtitles for every video on the Internet.

That is, this site is not merely aiming to have subtitles created for movies or TV shows (like endless other sites). The approach here is radically wider. Just think of how many online videos are added to a site like YouTube in five minutes alone.

Of course, the ones who came up with the Universal Subtitles website know as much already. That is part of the challenge from the very beginning.

The site is in early alpha, but you can already try it and see how the subtitling process works by submitting any video of your choice and working on it yourself.

Personally, I think this is a project to watch out for. The mere idea of being able to have just any online video subtitled without having to recode or upload anything twice is incredibly attractive. I suppose it is also a bit daunting, and that is why this is the first site of this nature that we see.
