Subtitling for SE Asia and the Pacific

I used to work for EngageMedia and I’m pleased to see that they have just launched a subtitling project in conjunction with our friends over at Universal Subtitles. Headed up by Singaporean democratic activist Seelan Palay

The 600 million people spread across Southeast Asia share a common set of challenges: climate change, human rights, freedom of expression, corruption and much more. With hundreds of regional languages, communication and collaboration can be difficult. Translation and subtitling could always help, but now it’s a whole lot easier.

Let’s hope the number of subtitles increases and these important videos are seen by more people as a result.
