Subtitling and translation is a whole lot easier now with the Amara workshops conducted by EngageMedia. With this new tool, social justice and environmental campaigners across South East Asia are able to collaborate, share and make use of video works like never before.
Here’s what some of our past workshop participants had to say:
“Amara has made the subtitling process so much faster and less complicated. There’s no need to install any software,so our reporters and volunteers can do subtitling from anywhere connected to internet.” – Pong Pan, Journalist, Thailand
“Amara is very useful in terms of making my documentaries reach audiences of all ethnicities and nations.This application is also easy to use,providing subtitles in various languages for my videos, which can be edited at any time. I feel very proud that my Mother Tongue Tamil language can be entered as subtitles into my videos.” – Sathis Kumar, Filmmaker, Malaysia
“Using Amara is as easy as using your web browser. The more familiar you are with it, the more you like subtitling. And you feel like a video editor once you’re done, you’ll see how clips from remote areas expose issues you never realize exist.” – Inda Tari, Freelance Translator, Indonesia
