Subtitling in Greece


Let's face it- it's challenging enough to come across a reliable subtitling service provider online. But try finding one that can truly convey the authentic experience with your content in Greek!

There is a commonly adopted subtitle development process that all subtitling companies follow. For a start, customer content is reviewed, and professional audiovisual translators are assigned. Then English Master Templates are created, translated into Greek, and proofread by captionists. Finally, the Greek subtitles or captions are QCed and delivered in the requested subtitle format. And following this workflow should be enough to transcend the authentic content feel in Greek.

But there's a catch.

The original content has been produced in another country, within a different cultural context and simply translating and subtitling it in Greek language is not enough to convey its creative intent. In result, the translated version fails to engage the local viewers and very successful TV shows, films, commercials, video games or other media end up as mediocre for the target audience. 


To help you transcend the original experience with your content and achieve a native feel, we apply a culture first approach- we craft and deliver Greek subtitles that consider all local norms and traditions to create a culturally relevant and immersive viewer experience for Greece.


GoPhrazy provides Greek subtitling services through our native subtitle translators for the needs of your TV, films, cartoons, animations, e-learning videos, commercials, and video games. Here's the deal- it takes just 3 easy steps with us to make your subtitles perfect for Greece:

But that's not all.

Where dialogue becomes vision


What makes over 300 companies come back and reward us with more than 10 000 projects over the years is our culturally intelligent approach. It’s a group of methods that blend meaning and feeling with local expertise to provide a peace of mind that your media feels great in Greek.


It all starts with you


We know that the most important factor in communication is to make sure that your viewers can connect and engage with your content not only on a linguistic but most importantly on a cultural level. That's why we don’t simply translate and subtitle your script in Greek language. Instead, we assist you in adapting your content to the local culture and craft a superior viewer experience.

Our Greek subtitling specialists


Creating Greek subtitles requires much more than simply making a word-by-word translation of a video script. Our subtitlers need to understand and experience the content; retain the context and meaning of the original version and convey it into Greek, considering cultural differences. That's why we work with a large pool of local subtitle translators that have expertise in many sectors, including entertainment, advertising, video game, e-learning, technology, and more.


Our in-house subtitling department

In result, your locally versioned media is ready to publish, in the style and format that you require.

Greek closed captioning


Improve the accessibility of your content in Greece by taking advantage of our Greek closed captioning services! While subtitles are created for hearing viewers and only reflect dialogue, our Greek closed captioning includes all audio elements to provide more context and enhance the content experience for viewers with hearing disability. We cover any sound in the video that is not visually evident and develop Greek closed captions with the assumption that the viewer is restricted from hearing the audio. We split the transcribed text into chunks (caption frames) and enable your local audience to follow the audio, video or captions interchangeably. Thus, we improve the accessibility and overall viewer experience for Greek audience with hearing impairment who depend on captions to understand the video. As these captions are enclosed in video stream and can be turned on and off at viewer's comfort, they are named "closed captions".


Greek open captioning


In case you need to improve accessibility for your videos, cinematic and theatrical content, our Greek open captioning services are the perfect match for you. Unlike closed captions, open captions are embedded (burnt-in) the media file and become an inseparable feature of the video. They cannot be switched on and off like closed captions but on the other side have other benefits. They are easier to use, eliminate the need to manage separate files and inconsistencies among various media players. They enable publishers to control caption size and style and (if the text is generated properly) come in sync with video while not requiring a special software for playback.


Greek SDH subtitling


Subtitling for the deaf and hard of hearing (or HoH subtitling) quickly becomes a media accessibility standard in Greece to respond to emerging regulations. It provides the closest-to-equal experience with your content to the local audience that suffers of hearing loss and combines both subtitle and caption content into a single file that is then translated into Greek. SDH include dialogue transcription, speaker IDs, audio description and could be placed anywhere on the screen to follow the sound positioning. While SDH includes audience with hearing loss, it also improves entertainment value and adds flexibility to education and information resources.


SDH are particularly designed for deaf, Deaf or hard of hearing audience.


  • Deaf with lower case "d" refers to viewers that cannot hear but can speak
  • Deaf with upper case "D" refers to viewers with hearing loss that prefer "sign language"
  • Hard of hearing refers to viewers with any level of hearing impairment


Led by exceptional people and supported by a state-of-the-art technology, we deliver Greek captions in a quick, responsive, reliable, convenient, consistent, transparent, and risk-free manner across various industries, while keeping you informed at every step of the way with your project.
