Your subtitle ideas wanted! Let’s work together to create the best set of subtitles!
This is the newest installment of our popular seminar series, in which we create one ultimate set of subtitles using translations written by you, the participants! This time, we will tackle Japanese-to-English translation for the first time, and create subtitles for a section of a Japanese short film. Participants are asked to hand in their own translations beforehand. The seminar is led by two JVTA J-E translation course instructors, who will dissect the scene, go over the English subtitling process, and give you feedback on your translations on the spot. If you’re interested in learning how to translate colloquial or culture-specific Japanese expressions, this is the seminar for you! Complete beginners and current/past JVTA students are all welcome. *This seminar will be conducted in English.
