It’s for those subtitle makers. You have to listen to every word the actor/actress says, make sure you have it all right, give timing and make sure there’s not too many text in one frame so it doesn’t pile up and not let people see the film. Even if you have the script and the text already, you still need to time it.

So here’s to subtitle makers–especially those who do it for free!
