What Are Subtitles?
Unlike closed captioning intended for Limited English Proficient viewers or subtitling for the deaf and hard of hearing, subtitles are the texts displayed at the bottom center of a film or television screen that translate what’s being said on-screen into a foreign language. Though they do not understand the original audio they hear in a foreign language, the viewers can read the subtitles while watching the video and understand the whole story.
Why Use Subtitling Services?
Now that you know the definition of subtitling, why is subtitling a critical part of video production? After pouring your heart and soul into the carefully crafted video, the first thing you want is to expose your unique content to a more extensive audience base possible.
You can achieve this goal by either adding subtitles or dubbings to your existing video. While dubbing is costly and time-consuming, subtitling has the immediate advantage of better search results with increased accessibility, enhanced engagement, and improved viewer experience.

Subtitles VS Captions
Although people often use subtitles and captions interchangeably, they are not synonymous.
Subtitles were introduced in the 1930s and were meant for accommodating foreign viewers who didn’t understand the language spoken in the film. Even today, subtitles continue to serve the primary purpose of translating spoken audio into a target language. However, subtitles do not include non-speech elements.
In the 1970s, captions were initially designed to help the deaf and hard of hearing watch TV. Captions communicate the spoken audio(narrations, dialogue) and non-speech sounds(song lyrics, sound effects, and atmospherics), all audio that makes up the whole story, ensuring the hard of hearing individuals have an equitable viewing experience.
