During the Web Summit 2018, Greg Peters spoke about the importance that the company gives to the process of translation, subtitling and dubbing, because 85% of its users activate these options. Netflix has subtitles in 26 languages and dubbing in 10 different languages. Each translation made by the platform is responsible for preserving the essence that the creators have given to the titles, it is about making a fluent and believable translation, where they measure up to the time that the viewers can read the subtitles, or how fast can speak the character they are portraying, in addition, they make a series of tests to know which voice fits with each character, trying to perfectly resemble the personality of the original character.
According to Netflix’s director of innovation, great stories come from anywhere and can travel anywhere, connecting with the right audience, of course, this is achieved through the use of technology, which is why they are proud to be one of the most recognized entertainment platforms worldwide, because they constantly look for ways to offer their services to any part of the planet.
