Transcription and Subtitling Services

Orange Translations draws from a network of several hundred professionals worldwide.

We offer transcription and subtitling services in English and more than 50 other languages. A lot of our recent transcription work has been in the market research field, where we transcribe interviews and focus group sessions, but also marketing communications, for example, promotional videos, corporate training videos, presentations and speeches. We can provide transcription and subtitling services separately, or together as a package. Some of the languages we have recently transcribed or subtitled include:

Chinese, Dutch, French, German, English, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, Vietnamese, and others.


We start each project with a thorough evaluation of your needs and a detailed upfront quote. Once you approve the quote we transcribe the spoken language and other relevant audio, for example, if the captions are required for hearing impaired audiences. The transcription phase often involves several different transcriptionists, especially if speech is difficult to understand.

For example, sometimes there is noise, such as people coughing or shuffling papers, or sometimes accents can pose a challenge. Therefore, we do several rounds of review, by different transcriptionists to make sure we understand everything correctly. We also do quite a lot of research, for example when industry jargon is used. We want to make sure we get it 100% right.

If subtitling is requested we then break down the texts into segments that are easy to read on screen, time-code the segments, if necessary slightly edit or shorten them, and place the subtitles correctly into your video, either embedded or as a separate file (e.g. SRT format). We support a broad range of video file formats.


Our translation office in Manila, the Philippines, handles most of our English-language transcription and subtitling in-house. We integrate this process seamlessly with our network of translators in over 50 countries, enabling us to offer multilingual transcription and subtitling for a wide range of languages. Also, we can integrate transcription and subtitling seamlessly with our translation and voice-over services if required.
