How I Went from Translator to Subtitler in Just a Few Months
The pandemic took my tourism-focused translation business from thriving to flatlining in the blink of an eye. I used my empty work calendar to study and train to become a subtitler. In less than a year, I went from audiovisual newbie to seeing my name in the credits of my first subtitled film! In this session I’ll provide a detailed timeline of the steps I followed to diversify my business and become a subtitler for the world’s largest streaming service in mere months. Attendees will gain an inside look at how to prepare and market for a career in subtitling.
