I have just come across dotSUB. I was looking for videos on the theme of translation. dotSUB is a web based tool which allows anyone to add translated subtitles to online videos. All you need to do is register and start translating. You don’t need to pay a dime, nor do they pay you a dime for doing it!

The video I have embedded above explains how users can start adding subtitles to videos.
I had a quick look at their FAQs but so far have not been able to find out how dotSUB controls the quality and correctness of the translations submitted. Anyone know? I hope they do have some measure of control, otherwise they could be a lot of information getting ‘lost in translation’.

    dotSUB is an enabling technology, the quality control is up to the owner of the content as to how they wish to do it. What you see on the web site is open without any restrictions, the video owners who use professional translators or their own employees or users use permissioning to allow access to only those they wish to translate, by video and by language.

    Feel free to contact me directly with any further comments or questions.
