Top 10 mistakes in subtitling, and the ways to avoid them

Subtitles: Don’t Spoil Them!

Subtitling is a form of art; by means of subtitles we can recreate and express both people’s voices and whole communicative contexts. As audiovisual products have reached a great amount of people by means of subtitles, subtitles have had a huge impact on society in the last years. What’s more, they’ve made it possible for us to access different sources of entertainment (movies, video games, and series). So, it’s very important to create them and to translate subtitles (if needed) as best as we can.

How many languages there are in China: the difference between Mandarin and Cantonese.

Do you know how many people speak Chinese?

About 1.3  billion! That’s nearly 1/5 (19%) of the Earth’s population! But this is not the only “surprising” thing about this language. Chinese is also one of the oldest languages in the world. Chinese scientists have found written sources from a period of over 3500 years. But despite its “old age”, Chinese is the only culture that has maintained the same writing system, even today. English to Cantonese translation is gaining more prominence, because more companies are developing relations with the East, primarily China.
