    subtitler

    - I couldn't find the word subtitler in most English dictionaries.
    - Most spellchecker programs underline subtitler.
    - An internal search of threads at UsingEnglish for subtitler used to produce no matches (before this very one post).

    Is there an English word for subtitler?

    Take a look for instance at: Profession: Subtitler
    The term is also used by wikipedia.

    Yes and no.

    Yes, there is: subtitler.

    No, there isn't, because you can't find it in the dictionary. (Note the way we often say the dictionary, as if Oxford, Merriam-Webster and all the others were all part of a lexicographical equivalent to the Bible).

    Don't despair. Hollywood knew what best boys and gaffers were for years before dictionaries got around to telling the rest of us.

    Re: subtitler

    Onelook only has one dictionary with the word:
    subtitler - definition and meaning from Wordnik
    So it's yet to make it into any of the mainstream dictionaries online.
