In the modern multimedia landscape, efficient subtitle creation is of paramount importance. Matesub, our AI-powered web-based platform, simplifies the process, making it accessible to both seasoned professionals and beginners. This user-friendly tool offers a versatile workflow for a seamless subtitling experience.

Auto-generate captions

With its advanced AI-driven captioning tools, Matesub introduces a transformative feature: auto-generate captions for professional subtitling. This function, ideal for both automated subtitling and video captioning, eliminates manual transcription. Users can easily select source and target languages, upload videos in any format, and quickly receive precise, AI-transcribed captions. Leveraging ModernMT for seamless translation, Matesub enhances efficiency in the subtitling process, ensuring time-saving accuracy in every project.

Use a reference file

For users seeking greater control and precision over their subtitle creation process, Matesub offers another remarkable workflow: the option to use a reference file. By simply uploading the video, selecting source language, and target language/s, users can take advantage of this feature.

They can then upload a reference file in either SRT or VTT format and specify the reference file’s language. The magic unfolds as the software meticulously analyzes the reference file, retaining its timing and synchronization while automatically translating the subtitles into the chosen target language using ModernMT machine translation engine. This dynamic process ensures that the translated subtitles seamlessly align with the original content, maintaining coherence and accuracy throughout. As a result, content creators, language professionals, and localization teams can effortlessly fine-tune their subtitles and deliver a polished, multilingual audiovisual experience.

In addition to the reference file workflow, Matesub introduces a powerful continuity feature that enhances productivity for users working on multilingual projects. Once a project is created in a specific language, users can use the already translated and synchronized subtitles as a reference for translating into other target languages. This continuity feature maintains consistency and context throughout different language versions, streamlining localization efforts and connecting with global audiences effortlessly.

Create and translate subtitles from scratch

For users who prefer a more hands-on approach, Matesub offers the flexibility to create subtitles and translations from scratch without relying on AI or machine translation. Additionally, users can upload a reference file without utilizing MT for translation. This allows them to personally translate the subtitles into the desired target language, tailoring the text to maintain authenticity and accuracy.

Matesub is a powerful ally in the world of subtitle creation, presenting a diverse array of workflows tailored to meet the needs of every user. From the efficient auto-generate captions, harnessing the potential of AI and MT, to the flexibility of using reference files and crafting subtitles from scratch, this software empowers content creators, language professionals, and enthusiasts to seamlessly connect with global audiences. With its intuitive interface and dedication to preserving context and consistency, Matesub is undoubtedly revolutionizing the way we engage with audiovisual content, fostering a more inclusive and interconnected world of multimedia communication.
