Russian game subtitling practices

The way Russian subtitles are presented on the screen, both visually and structurally, has a significant impact on the player’s video game experience. While subtitling your video game in Russian we follow all the good industry practices, taking into consideration numerous factors like alphabet, font size, amount of text, choice of options, accuracy, start-to-finish approach, center alignment, adding text from the bottom, displaying the character names, transcribing important sounds, indicating sound origin, players’ reading speed, selecting user-friendly, readable fonts.

Russian game subtitling process

Your Russian video game subtitling starts with the narrative team who works on the scripts of the games spoken content (cinematic cut scenes, mission/level dialogue and the so-called “barks”- single lines spoken by characters as systemic reactions to game events or player actions). The script goes beyond dialogue and also describes the setting, daytime, additional directions for the actors etc. Some dialogue might be written by developers at first.

After the scripts are created, they now need to be subtitled in Russian and transferred into the game. Differing to other industries, video games use “event triggers” rather timecodes to synch the Russian subtitles. Game subtitles also often compete with other interface text. The interactive nature of video games, less time to read subtitles and control of the presentation rate by pressing a button by the player is also making Russian video game subtitling different than Russian subtitling in Broadcast TV or film.

Common issues in Russian game subtitling

• Tiny font size
• Super long lines
• Too much text in a subtitle
• Poor contrast
• Arbitrary line breaks
• No minimum gaps between Russian subtitles
• Wild presentation rate
• No features for deaf/ hard of hearing Russian players

Other common issues when subtitling video games in Russian include alphabet character and grammar errors, hard-to-read fonts, no minimum duration, out-of-sync subtitles with the audio, subtitles covering important parts of the interface, poor subtitle positioning (near the screen center or at the very edge), partially or entirely not subtitled video games.
