Movie Subtitling Services – Sarah Cogdon Films Testimonial

“..It was a completely self funded project and I didn’t make it easy for myself. I knew I would need to enlist help along the way, and after searching for a subtitling company to help translate the English into French I found ‘Absolute Translations’. This is a company that I could not recommend highly enough. This is the type of company that goes the extra mile for their clients. Its exactly what they did for me, working with me to get the best subtitling option for my film. I am not one of these big London production companies, I am a sole trader, who’s making a personal project and I really felt like they cared just as much for me and my project. The work was done really quick and helped me to push on and finish my film to a great standard.”
