Russian Subtitles & Captions

Knockhundred offers a high-quality Russian subtitling service to a variety of clients across a wide range of business sectors. In fact, we offer professional subtitling services in over 190 languages, including Russian, for cinema, TV, online material, DVD, video, video games, computer games and corporate CD-ROMS.

We can provide captions and Russian captioning services (including closed captions) for those people who are deaf or hard of hearing. These captions will usually contain descriptions of non-dialogue audio (such as laughter or a door slamming).

We also of course provide English subtitling services to a huge range of clients across the globe. Please refer to our languages page to see which languages we can handle.

The art of Russian subtitling

Using subtitling software, we can provide subtitles in virtually any language including Russian, and produce the end result in most industry-standard formats such as plain text, Word, HTML, Final Cut Pro XML, Spruce STL or Subrip (srt).

If you don't see the format you need, just ask, as we may still be able to help. The Russian subtitlers will identify exact positions where each subtitle should appear and disappear. These markers are usually identified by precise time codes/frames dependent on the service you require.

The process of Russian captioning

The process of captioning is much the same as for producing Russian subtitles. The main difference is that the resulting Russian captions will often contain descriptions of sound as well as a direct transcription of the speech.

Russian transcription and translation for film and tv

We regularly translate film and documentary clips providing a finished transcription with time codes ready for Russian subtitles to be created. We are more than happy to produce finished srt subtitle files if you'd prefer.

One-step media translation from video for Russian subtitles

If your source video is in one language, for example English, and you require the subtitles to be in another, for example Russian, our Russian linguists will provide a direct translation into the relevant language and produce time-coded subtitles in a suitable format.

Russian video SEO

Do you have an existing video in Russian, or are you having one produced?  If you want consumers to find your video, please remember search engines can’t watch a video or listen to audio, but they do “understand” (and index) text.  This is why it is important to upload an aligned, accurate Russian transcript to support your video content or to provide Russian subtitles or captions.  This is how search engines will “hear” your video.

WHILE YOU’RE HERE... SOME QUITE INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE Russian LANGUAGE

Russian is an Eastern Slavic language spoken mainly in Russia and many other countries by about 260 million people, 150 million of whom are native speakers. Russian is an official language in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, and in a number of other countries, territories and international organisations, including Tajikistan, Moldova, Gagauzia, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Transnistria, and the UN. It is also recognised as a minority language in Romania, Finland, Norway, Armenia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

The earliest known writing in Russia dates from the 10th century and was found at Novgorod. The main languages written on them in an early version of the Cyrillic alphabet were Old Russian and Old Church Slavonic. There are also some texts in Finnish, Latin and Greek.

Russian started appearing in writing regularly during the reign of Peter the Great (a.k.a. Peter I) (1672-1725) who introduced a revised alphabet and encouraged authors to use a literary style closer to their spoken language. The dialect of Moscow was used as the basis for written Russian.

Russian literature started to flower during the 19th century when Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Gogol and Pushkin were active. During the Soviet era knowledge of the Russian language was widespread though the subjects authors could write about were restricted.
