English-to-Spanish Translation of SRT Files
An SRT file (otherwise known as a SubRip Subtitle file) is a text file that contains information regarding subtitles, including the start and end timecodes of text to ensure your subtitles match your audio, and the order/number of subtitles. And like other text based files SRT files can be translated into Spanish or virtually any language. Text is translated and the time codes are left unchanged.
Professional human translators work with software tools that allow them to work solely on the text for translation. The translated SRT files can then be used together with video files to apply subtitles to a video. Subtitles are a quick and easy way to effectively “translate” a video into another language and expand its reach. Most often subtitles contain the written text of spoken audio content on a video. The spoken audio can be that of a narrator or multiple voices engaged in a conversation.
An option other than applying subtitles is to record new voiceovers in a target language to replace the originally recorded audio. Adding voiceovers is typically more costly since the services of a professional voice talent is needed whereas only a translator is required to translate the text. Rarely are voiceovers and subtitles required since they’re redundant.
