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

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 Russian.
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 Russian 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 Russian 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 Russian 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 Russian subtitles are always consistent but above all, always a pleasure to read.
Our Russian subtitling specialists
Creating Russian 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 Russian, considering cultural differences. That's why we work with a large pool of Russian 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 local 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 Russian subtitling service is always delivered correctly. In result, your local versioned media is ready to publish, in the style and format that you require. We strive to provide a seamless viewer experience in Russian and we know that the perfect subtitling is the one that you never notice.

Russian closed captioning
Improve the accessibility of your content in Russia by taking advantage of our Russian closed captioning services! While subtitles are created for hearing viewers and only reflect dialogue, our Russian 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 Russian 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 local 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".
Russian open captioning
In case you need to improve accessibility for your videos, cinematic and theatrical content, our Russian 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.
Russian SDH subtitling
Subtitling for the deaf and hard of hearing (or HoH subtitling) quickly becomes a media accessibility standard in Russia 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 Russian. 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 Russian 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 Russian language
Russian is a Slavic language spoken by approximately 260 million people, making it one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Russian belongs to the East Slavic branch of the Slavic language family, which also includes Ukrainian and Belarusian. It shares similarities with other Slavic languages but has its own distinct features. Russian grammar is highly inflected and has a complex system of noun declension, verb conjugation, and grammatical cases. It features six noun cases and three verb tenses. Russian is written using the Cyrillic alphabet, which consists of 33 letters. While some letters may appear similar to those in the Latin alphabet, their pronunciation and usage differ. Russian pronunciation can be challenging for non-native speakers due to its distinct sounds and stress patterns. It features soft and hard consonants, vowel reduction, and palatalization. Russian vocabulary has its roots in Slavic languages and has been influenced by other languages such as Greek, French, and German. It has a rich lexicon that covers various aspects of life, culture, and science. The Russian language is an integral part of Russian culture and national identity.
