Essential for inclusivity, closed captions can be turned on or off by viewers and are designed for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. They not only transcribe dialogue but also describe sound effects and audio cues, making sure that everyone can fully enjoy your content.

Arabic Open Captioning (OC):

Picture subtitles that are always on and permanently embedded in the video. They cater to all viewers and are commonly used in public settings like cinemas, ensuring accessibility at all times.

Standard Arabic Subtitles:

Ideal for foreign language films or videos, standard Arabic subtitles translate the original dialogue into Arabic, giving viewers the flexibility to enable or disable them as needed.

Forced Arabic Subtitles:

Specifically used in multilingual films or videos, forced subtitles automatically appear for certain segments, typically when characters speak in a language other than the film's main language.

Arabic Subtitles for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (SDH):

Going beyond closed captions, SDH Arabic subtitling services provide additional information about background sounds, speaker identification, and non-dialogue audio elements, creating a more immersive viewing experience for all audiences.

Burned-In Subtitles:

Also known as hard subtitles, they're permanently added during post-production, providing a consistent viewing experience that can't be turned off or customized by viewers.

Roll-Up Subtitles:

Perfect for live broadcasts, roll-up subtitles appear line by line, rolling up from the bottom of the screen, allowing viewers to read the text as it unfolds.

Teletext Subtitles (DVB Subtitles):

Commonly found in broadcast television, as viewers can often customize their appearance, including font size and color.

Karaoke Subtitles:

Frequently used in Arabic music videos or sing-along content, Arabic karaoke subtitles sync with the music's timing, highlighting words as they're sung, adding an interactive element to the viewing experience.

Crafting Fluent Arabic Subtitles Through Our Smooth Arabic Subtitling Service Process

At Localizera, we take pride in our defined approach to providing top-notch Arabic subtitling services. Our smooth process ensures that your content is not only accurately translated but also thoughtfully adapted to appeal to your Arabic-speaking audience. Here’s a glimpse of the steps we follow:

Content Assessment:

We begin by carefully reviewing your content to understand its context, style, and target audience. This step is crucial for tailoring the subtitling to the specific requirements of your material.

Script Preparation:

Our skilled team prepares the script for our Arabic subtitling services by breaking down the dialogue and ensuring it aligns with the timing and pacing of your video.

Translation and Adaptation:

Our experienced native Arabic linguists start translating the content. This step goes beyond mere translation; it's about capturing the nuances of the language and making your content feel natural to Arabic-speaking viewers.


Timing is everything. Our expert teams synchronize the Arabic subtitles to match the spoken dialogue, ensuring that the text appears on screen at the right moment.

Quality Assurance:

Quality control is a top priority. Our proficient team reviews the subtitled content to check for accuracy, readability, and proper timing. We guarantee that the final result meets our high standards.

Client Review:

For your peace of mind, we offer a client review option. This allows you to provide feedback and make any necessary adjustments to ensure the subtitled content aligns perfectly with your vision.

Post-Service Support:

Subtitling with Style Through Our Harmonizing Spotting Process

As always known in the subtitling field, the spotlight shines on the spotting process: a vital technical intricate process in which the moment when the subtitles are shown is calculated, along with the time they appear in each clip, the time they disappear from the screen, and the synchronization with the audio.

During the spotting process, our aim is to maintain the text’s natural flow, adhering to the same punctuation, spelling rules, and meaning as the original content. Here are the key rules we follow at our professional translation agency in Europe, Localizera:

  • Preserving the Natural Text: Our subtitles retain speech marks (“ ”), recognized abbreviations, and numbers while avoiding unnecessary capitalization whenever possible.
  • Adding Emphasis with Italics: To add emphasis and clarity, we employ italics for off-screen voices, songs, and audio originating from off-screen or electronic devices. This technique enhances the viewer’s understanding and immersion in the content.
  • Maintaining Sentence Integrity: Our subtitles ensure that nouns and adjectives, as well as nouns and verbs, remain together on the same line, creating a natural division that enhances readability and comprehension.
  • Conversational Clarity: In two-person conversations, we use hyphens (-) and carefully insert them for a clear and engaging dialogue. Each participant’s intervention appears on a separate subtitle line, ensuring that the conversation flows smoothly and naturally.
