    Trying to subtitle a video (problems with accent)

    Hello!
    I don't know if this is the right place for the question, but the problem is:
    I am trying to subtitle a video (I'm working for a fanpage in Brazil of FKA twigs), but her strong british accent is not letting me understand some parts of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fF9zDKdSFc
    So far I would like to know if is someone able to help me here, or is there other place I could receive aid.
    Thank you!

    Re: Trying to subtitle a video (problems with accent)

    Hi SirX,

    I am a dialect coach (I teach people accents and how to get rid of their accents) and expert on 'British accents'. I'd be happy to help, however, wouldn't be able to transcribe the entire video. Are there any particular places in the video that you cannot understand?

    If you need a transcription of the whole video, may I suggest trying the website 'Fiverr'- they offer reasonable transcription services (look for them in the search field).

    If it's just a few lines you need help with, I will be more than happy to assist.

    Kind regards

    Michael Andrews

    Re: Trying to subtitle a video (problems with accent)

    Hi mandrews01!
    Thank you very much for your reply.
    What you do is very interesting. I personally find british accent really beautiful, even though in the UK you can have a lot of different accents. I wish I could speak with that accent.
    And also your tip is super valid, thank you again! I've never heard of this service before, and actually it has a lot of good and useful stuff besides transcription service.
    About the video, there are some words that I really can't understand. These are the specifics points I need help.

    0:05-0:08
    0:41-0:45
    1:56-1:58
    2:09-2:11
    2:23-2-26 (... of view?)
    5:22 - Big...?
    7:29 - being ... in the right way
    7:41 - ... people

    I really feel embarassed to be asking that, sorry for bothering you!
    But thank you one more time for offering help.

    Re: Trying to subtitle a video (problems with accent)

    0:05-0:08 It's always really emotionally driven with me.
    0:41-0:45 Can you put on theses shorts? Can you stand over here? Can you look cute? Can you, like, rub up this rapper's leg?
    1:56-1:58 And also, as well, like, I would start this kind of…
    2:09-2:11 So then, I just sort of, well I might as well do it myself…
    2:23-2:26 I've spoken before about the man's-eye view that you get in a camera.
    5:22 big butt…
    7:29 being portrayed in the right way.
    7:41 I think that, on the whole, people really understand my work.
