If you are willing to learn, there are ways that you can create your subtitles for free. This can be done by using free online software such as subtitle workshop. These programs allow you to play, transcribe and export your subtitle files. You can create basic text based files such as VTT and SRT subtitle files. However, they can be time consuming if you need to subtitle a large video file or are not a fast typist. Subtitles can also be created using online software such as YouTube’s own captioning platform. Dialogue can be automatically transcribed, timed and downloaded. We must add though, it is strongly recommended that subtitles you create via this method are thoroughly proofread.
Another way to save money on your subtitles and captions is to send us the transcripts. Here AI can produce automatic timings. This does reduce the cost significantly. However, if timings are automatically added, the subtitles and captions produced aren’t always as accurate as needed for professional use.
