Why is the test a subtitling file and not a transcription?

All collaborators at Happy Scribe work both on transcriptions and subtitle (captions) files, we do not separate the two disciplines.

The moment you become a Scribe you will be able to choose files of both types, therefore we need you to be able to approach with confidence both subtitling and transcription work.

A subtitling test helps us evaluate all the following skills:

  • You know how to apply Happy Scribe transcription and subtitling guidelines.

  • You can use our specific transcription and subtitle editor.

  • You have high knowledge of your chosen language in terms of grammar, spelling, and syntax.

  • You can apply the rules regarding CPS, CPL, synching, and line breaks.
