MDL609 Theory and Practice of Subtitling

Aims/Description: This unit aims to give students the opportunity to further develop the technical skills acquired in the core module The Theory and Practice of Subtitling by applying them to an extended practical subtitling task. It will enable them to enhance essential technical skills of subtitling including spotting, timing, cueing, segmentation and the positioning of captions using professional subtitling software. By the end of the module we expect that students will be able to: i) Appreciate the technical aspects of screen translation; ii) Appreciate the practical constraints of screen translation; iii) Relate theory to practice in a practical subtitling project using professional subtitling software; iv) Use subtitling software to produce subtitles to appropriate standards for a subtitling project; and v) Investigate and present an individual subtitling project
