PBTEU of Sofia, Bulgaria has released SubtitleNext Version 5.6, which offers a new centralized Smart Text Assist feature that the company says significantly speeds up and simplifies the entire text-altering process. It combines all of the text-altering tools in one place so that they can be easily accessed. This provides a reliable and consistent framework for busy subtitlers to achieve fast results.
Text-altering is a term that refers to changes in text constructs or meaning, such as date or time formats, units of measurement, replacement phrases, translations, corrections, and the reorganisation of text.
SubtitleNext enables users to connect to broadcast feeds, webinars, Skype, Zoom, AV desks, live streams, or any live audio source. The translated subtitles are then delivered back to the screen, laptop, tablet, or smart phone in real time. Subtitles are the simplest and most efficient way to share content in any language and the Smart Text Assist helps to significantly speed up text altering in SubtitleNEXT 5.6.
The developer of SubtitleNext, Kamen Ferdinandov of Toronto-based Profuz Digital says, “To put the new Smart Text Assist feature in context, most text editing programs don’t have all the tools readily available for users to easily access, as they are usually a separate tool that has to be activated within the system they are using, or they have to open an external program. Overall, the process is time-consuming and entails multiple commands – clicking, typing, key pressing – in order to get a result. With the new Smart Text Assist, we have eradicated these hassles. Now users only have to select the portion of text they’re interested in changing, and in just one to two clicks, the required results will be instantaneous with the text replaced. We enjoy interfacing with customers to find out how we can continue to keep introducing new tools like this in SubtitleNext that deliver results.”
SubtitleNext creates both subtitles and captions. It is used for same language translation, transcribing, adaptation (SDHH), dialogue and other audible or visible text and commentaries, with efficiency at remarkable speed and accuracy. It provides users with a multi-file synchronous browsing editing feature with an “editor-like” experience that adapts to all the up to date language rules and adjustments.
SubtitleNext can run on major operating systems such as Windows, Linux and MAC OS, and is primarily aimed at subtitling and captioning professionals, through to Language Services Providers, production, post-production companies and broadcasters.
