Hello everyone Time for subtitling This time the…

Hello everyone!

Time for subtitling 🙂 This time the video isn’t quite there – I have a few more things to do; but it’s possible to get it subtitled anyway as the timestamps won’t be changing on the voice over track. Here’s what needs to be done:
1. Jazzer to be added
2. Tagline to be added – I’ve added the tagline in the English subtitles so you can just translate that.
3. I also need to add the opening and closing tags.

You can find the video here. I’ve added the English subtitles so please just add the ones in your language. I need them done by noon GMT on Monday 7th December.

Subtitles for WordPress 4.3

Hi polyglotters!

The WordPress 4.2 video was the first one that we created subtitles for. It was great to be able to provide subtitles, although I think we had varying degrees of success with the overall workflow. We’d like to provide subtitles again for WordPress 4.3.

I’d like to refine the workflow and make it a better and smoother experience. You can find the workflow that we used for 4.2 here.

In brief, what we did was either:
1. Translate through a web interface, or
2. Translate the XML file directly

The files were then emailed to me.

I would be okay with using the same approach again this time but not everyone found the experience to be smooth. So if you have feedback and a suggestion for a better workflow that we can implement, please let me know on this thread.

Some dates for your diary:

  • the final cut of the video will be made available by 12th August for translation
  • I will need to receive subtitles by 15th August.
