Subtitling in Israel
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 Hebrew!
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 Hebrew, and proofread by captionists. Finally, the Hebrew 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 Hebrew.
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 Hebrew 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 local 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 Hebrew subtitles that consider all local norms and traditions to create a culturally relevant and immersive viewer experience for Israel.
GoPhrazy provides Hebrew 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 Israel:

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 Hebrew.
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 Hebrew language. Instead, we assist you in adapting your content to the local culture and craft a superior viewer experience.

Expertly written and perfectly timed
Our subtitlers are not only true experts in Hebrew language but also in weighing written against spoken words, editing text to fit both visually and contextually, retaining the essence without any loss of meaning. While translating and developing Hebrew subtitles, we consider the rhythm of the video, dialogue pace and the viewers' reading speed. We create subtitles and captions with timings synchronized with a surgical precision to the highest level of accuracy (up to 1/100 sec). As a result, our Hebrew subtitles are always consistent but above all, always a pleasure to read.
Our Hebrew subtitling specialists
Creating Hebrew 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 Hebrew, 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
Though we employ highly trained, experienced and subject-matter competent, native freelance Hebrew subtitle translators, we also have a team of in-house subtitling QCers who validate each and every file against the assigned specifications and cultural checklists to ensure that your Hebrew subtitling service is always delivered correctly. In result, your locally versioned media is ready to publish, in the style and format that you require. We strive to provide a seamless viewer experience in Hebrew and we know that the perfect subtitling is the one that you never notice.

Hebrew closed captioning
Improve the accessibility of your content in Israel by taking advantage of our Hebrew closed captioning services! While subtitles are created for hearing viewers and only reflect dialogue, our Hebrew 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 Hebrew 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 Hebrew 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".
Hebrew open captioning
In case you need to improve accessibility for your videos, cinematic and theatrical content, our Hebrew 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.
Hebrew SDH subtitling
Subtitling for the deaf and hard of hearing (or HoH subtitling) quickly becomes a media accessibility standard in Israel 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 Hebrew. 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 Hebrew 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.

About Hebrew language
Hebrew is a Semitic language with a rich and ancient history that dates back thousands of years. It is the official language of Israel and holds a central place in Jewish culture and identity. Hebrew has evolved significantly over time and experienced periods of revival and transformation. The Hebrew language is renowned for its complex and distinctive script, which reads from right to left and consists of 22 consonants. It is a highly inflected language, meaning that changes in the form of words (inflections) convey grammatical information such as tense, gender, and number. Modern Hebrew, in particular, has undergone simplification in its grammatical structure compared to its ancient forms. Hebrew is known for its significance in religious texts, particularly the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh), which includes the Torah, Prophets, and Writings. It is considered the sacred language of Judaism and is used extensively in religious rituals, prayers, and study. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, there was a significant revival of the Hebrew language, known as the "Hebrew Renaissance." This revival transformed Hebrew from a primarily liturgical language to a modern, spoken language. Today, Modern Hebrew is the everyday language of Israel, used in education, media, government, and daily communication. It is a dynamic language that continues to evolve, incorporating new words and expressions to reflect modern concepts and technologies, ensuring its relevance in contemporary society. Hebrew's unique historical and cultural significance makes it a language of enduring importance.
About Hebrew culture
Hebrew culture is deeply rooted in the historical and religious heritage of the Jewish people, with a rich and diverse history that spans thousands of years. Religion, particularly Judaism, plays a fundamental role in Hebrew culture. It encompasses a wide range of religious practices, customs, and traditions, with the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) and Talmud serving as essential texts. The Jewish calendar is filled with numerous holidays and festivals, such as Passover, Hanukkah, and Yom Kippur, each carrying its own set of rituals and traditions. Family is of paramount importance in Hebrew culture, with a strong emphasis on close-knit family ties. Marriages, bar mitzvahs, and other life events are celebrated with great significance. Hebrew culture has made substantial contributions to the arts and sciences. Jewish artists, writers, and musicians have achieved worldwide recognition, and Hebrew literature is a rich repository of Jewish history and thought. Cuisine also plays a significant role in Hebrew culture, with traditional dishes like challah bread, matzo, falafel, and gefilte fish representing the culinary heritage of Jewish communities around the world. In sum, Hebrew culture is an intricate tapestry of faith, tradition, language, and history, and it has had a profound impact on various aspects of global culture.
