Creation of multilingual subtitles is a special type of translation requiring not only excellent knowledge of the foreign language and culture on the part of the translator, but also considerable creativity in order to adapt untranslatable expressions. Lack of time or space to enter a complete translation of a given line is a problem frequently encountered by the translator. This requires skilful editing if it is not to lead to excessive simplification of the message. Erroneous translations and unfortunate adaptations quickly become an object of ridicule for cinema-goers, which proves that this task cannot be handled by just anyone.
