    Question Making Subtitles - Waste of time ?

    Hey! Firstly, I wish happy eid al-adha to my all Muslim brothers.

    And my question to all members; Do you think making subtitles by listening to a speech is helpful or just waste of time? (from English speech into Turkish (my native) subtitle)

    Well, books often have subtitles. What does your subtitle relate to? A speech?

    Are you talking about making/writing subtitles yourself or using Turkish subtitles while you're watching/listening to something in English?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    If it will benefit the Turkish people watching the speech, then I would say it's not a waste of time.

    If you're doing the translating, I'd say there would surely be some value in it - if nothing else, it's extra practice, and as they say, practice makes perfect.
