Subtitle The International

Subtitled video is increasingly important in the age of Internet distribution with large, global audiences. Subtitles increase the potential audience size for your message by making content consumable to people in international locations, on social media as video is often played on mute, and to those who are hard of hearing with accessibility.Simon Says can subtitle your video in minutes. It is accurate, easy-to-use, and highly flexible so you achieve perfect subtitles for your application, workflow, and distribution platform.

Adding English subtitles to your videos makes your content accessible to millions of English speakers around the world. Subtitles are also great for grabbing attention, increasing the chances people watch your videos all the way to the end.

As more people watch videos on the go, the number of people that watch videos without sound is increasing. A study from Verizon reveals that 69% of people watch videos without sound in public places while 25% of people say they view soundless videos in private places. Adding English subtitles can help these viewers follow your content.

Caption and subtitle file formats are used to mark up the external text track resources in connection with the HTML track element of a video file. The markup file formats use time tags that allow for time alignment of the video content with the captions or subtitles.

In addition to this implementation, one should consider offering the captions or subtitles as multiple timed annotations, making the text available in multiple ways. See [Using Annotations for Timed Text][0079].

While captions, subtitles, and transcripts each present some text interpretation of the A/V content, the ways in which they are consumed by users differ. For a more detailed discussion about these differences see Transcripts, Captions, and Subtitles - General Considerations.

In this example we use a caption file in the WebVTT format, but other options include a subtitle file in the SRT (SubRip Text) or TTML (Timed Text Markup Language) formats, or other text-based format used for the same purpose.

Here in Czechia we usually use windows-1250 encoding (ANSI), but I don't see some special characters like "š" - it looks like they are skipped in the text. There are some efforts to use UTF-8 as default by some, but currently UTF-8 encoded SRT files are skipped as invalid. I found out you can convert the subtitles to UCS2LE or UCS2BE and they show correctly.

Yum I've sent you the example subtitle files. My current setup is Oculus Rift S and Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 on latest Windows 10. Behavior is the same when I download Skybox via Oculus store and when I download it via Steam / with SteamVR layer.

With the rapid development of economy and culture, the cultural communication in the world is increasing. Nowadays film is an important way of cultural communication and entertainment. Plenty of foreign films appear in China, meanwhile a wealth of Chinese films roll in the world film market and gain wide popularity. No doubt it is a good opportunity for foreigners to understand Chinese culture. As a new and special translation mode, subtitle translation can add more success to movie, it will attract more people's attention. And it will not only make people acquire better enjoyment, but also promote the communication of different culture. If Chinese films want to hold a leading post in the world, great attention must be paid to successful subtitle translation. According to the perspective of functionalist, the translation principle is the purpose of translation activity. So subtitle translation is a purposeful activity. This thesis analyses the case study of the subtitle translation in The Flowers of War from the perspective of functionalist. It tries to explore the guiding theory of subtitle translation, analyze feature and influence elements, and put forward some translation principles and strategies in subtitle translation practice.

The USA PATRIOT Act was passed by the United States Congress in 2001 as a response to the September 11, 2001 attacks. It has ten titles, each containing numerous sections. Title III: International Money Laundering Abatement and Financial Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001 is actually an act of Congress in its own right as well as being a title of the USA PATRIOT Act, and is intended to facilitate the prevention, detection and prosecution of international money laundering and the financing of terrorism. The title's sections primarily amend portions of the Money Laundering Control Act of 1986 and the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970.

The provisions of Title III are divided into three subtitles. The first deals primarily with strengthening banking rules specifically against money laundering, especially on the international stage. Communication between law enforcement agencies and financial institutions, as well as among institutions, is expanded by the second subtitle, which also increases record keeping and reporting requirements. The final portion of the title deals with currency smuggling and counterfeiting, including quadrupling the maximum penalty for counterfeiting foreign currency.

certain jurisdictions outside of the United States that offer `offshore' banking and related facilities designed to provide anonymity, coupled with weak financial supervisory and enforcement regimes, provide essential tools to disguise ownership and movement of criminal funds, derived from, or used to commit, offenses ranging from narcotics trafficking, terrorism, arms smuggling, and trafficking in human beings, to financial frauds that prey on law-abiding citizens... [T]ransactions involving such offshore jurisdictions make it difficult for law enforcement officials and regulators to follow the trail of money earned by criminals, organized international criminal enterprises, and global terrorist organizations [1]

Subtitle A (titled "International Counter Money Laundering and Related Measures") is the first part of title III and is designed to put measures into place that counter international money laundering. It does this in several ways: it makes financial institutions undertake several new special measures against money laundering (identification is dealt with particularly); by restricting or prohibiting the use of certain types of bank accounts; through adding further legislation that regulates a financial institution's dealing with foreign concerns; by adding new penalties for corruption and through regulations that are designed to facilitate and encourage reporting and communication between financial institutions and the U.S. government.

There are several sections that establish special measures that financial institutions must undertake. Section 311 requires the maintenance of records of the aggregate amount of all transactions that are made outside the U.S. in areas where money-laundering has been identified as a concern; that reasonable steps be undertaken by a financial institution to obtain and retain information on foreigners who gain a benefit of ownership of an account which is opened and maintained in the U.S., and yet who do not own the account itself (also known as beneficial ownership); and that the financial institution identify any foreign customers who are authorised to use or route transactions through a payable-through account in the U.S.. Section 314 adds regulations that attempt to foster cooperative efforts to deter money laundering. This was mainly done by ordering the U.S. Treasury and other agencies to create regulations that set out how information was to be shared,[4] and by allowing financial institutions to share information with other financial institutions when so allowed by the Secretary of Treasury. Section 327 makes it harder for bank holding companies or banks to merge or consolidate with another bank holding company if they have not got a good track record in combating money laundering activities, and also makes it harder for insured depository institutions to merge with non-insured depository institutions if the insured depository institution has a bad track record in combating money laundering activities. A number of sections (sections 312, 313, 319 and 325) deal with the forfeiture of goods if international terrorism or money laundering is suspected.

To deal with problems of identifying those who undertake money laundering activities, section 326 of the subtitle was designed to make it harder to mask the identity of individuals or groups who perform transactions or open accounts in the United States. Under this section, the Secretary of the Treasury was given the task of prescribing regulations that set forth the minimum standards that financial institutions must undertake to verify the identity of customers who open accounts.[5] These rules became effective on June 9, 2003, although financial institutions had until October 1, 2003 to come into compliance.[6] The minimum requirements under the section require financial institutions to establish procedures to take reasonable and practicable measures to verify the identity of those applying for an account with the institution;[7] maintain records of the information used to verify a person's identity, including name, address, and other identifying information;[8] and to consult lists of known or suspected terrorists or terrorist organizations, provided to the financial institution by any government agency, to determine whether a person seeking to open an account appears on any such list.[9] When prescribing the regulations, the Secretary was ordered to take into account the types of accounts available to financial institutions, the various methods someone can use to open accounts, and the various types of identifying informationavailable to the institutions.[10]

Section 313 prohibits foreign shell banks that are not an affiliate of a bank that has a physical presence in the U.S. or that is not subject to supervision by a banking authority in a non-U.S. country regulating the affiliated depository institution, credit union, or foreign bank. The subtitle has several sections that prohibit or restrict the use of certain accounts held at financial institutions. Under section 312, financial institutions must undertake steps to identify the owners of any non-U.S. bank that is not publicly listed who have a correspondent account with them, along with the interests of each of the owners in the bank. It is expected that additional scrutiny will be applied by the U.S. institution to such banks to make sure they are not engaging in money laundering. They must also identify the nominal and beneficial owners of any private bank account opened and maintained in the U.S. by non-U.S. citizens and must undertake enhanced scrutiny of the account if it is owned by, or is beingmaintained on behalf of, any senior political figure where there is reasonable suspicion of corruption. Under section 319 any deposits into foreign banks are also considered to have been deposited into any interbank account the foreign bank may have in the U.S. Thus any restraining order, seizure warrant or arrest warrant may be made against the funds in the interbank account held at a U.S. financial institution, up to the amount deposited in the account at the foreign bank. 041b061a72
