Services You Should Consider

CaptionSync can help you out in either case.  We offer Spanish transcription by professional stenographers (as well as English) or you can provide your own Spanish transcript for Spanish captions and subtitles.

Leveraging the timing from your original language captioning submission, our Translation Captions use either your own provided translation text or use our professional translators to deliver Spanish translated caption and subtitle files in all the same formats you originally received.
Do you need your CaptionSync captions or subtitles translated into another language?

Translation Captions make that happen by leveraging the timing from your original job.  Right after you receive caption or subtitle results you're happy with, you can add Translation Captions.  You can either use our professional translators (Spanish/English currently), OR provide your own translation text.  Thereafter you'll receive caption files in all the original formats you requested, with all the original settings such as caption line length, number of lines, etc.
