Subtitling Workshop: an introduction to subtitling guidelines and the Subtitle Edit tool

18 June, 2022 @ 2:00 pm 5:00 pm

Ever wanted to give subtitling a go? We’ll show you how it’s done.

Join NWTN members and experienced subtitlers Rachael Barton and Katell Sevellec for a three-hour workshop on 18 June at 2pm, at Oppidan Social in Manchester.

Prior to the big day, we will provide you with a link to obtain the free Subtitle Edit software, so that you can prepare for the session and ask any specific questions on the day.

During the workshop, you will be introduced to the main guidelines and limitations to be observed when subtitling any video content, before getting the opportunity to practice your newly acquired skills using Subtitle Edit.

We will then work together on subtitling a video, provided by the Network, which will allow us to tackle some of the main issues facing subtitlers in their daily work.

This workshop is aimed at complete beginners but feel free to join us if you have already gained some experience and just want to brush up on your technique.

Tickets for this CPD-packed workshop are only £15 for our members, with a £10 ticket available for students.

£10 – £15 £10 for students; £15 for members
