Video Subtitle Localization

The challenge here was to make the subtitles engaging and easy to follow while still conveying complex ideas. The technical terms used in the digital courses may not have direct translations in other languages, which can make it difficult to convey the meaning accurately in the target language. The video subtitle need to be synchronized with the audio and video content to ensure that the timing is accurate and the subtitles appear on screen at the right time.

Data analysis, getting data support for decision-making
