Style your subtitles

After you are done translating the subtitles, you maybe want to add some style, give them the look of your brand and move them to a different position.

Choose the font :

  • Lobster, Permanent Marker or Courier are very playful and shouldn't be used in serious contexts.
  • Open Sans, Epilogue, Roboto and Montserrat are perfect for neutral - serious use cases.
  • Libre Baskerville and Playfair Display are for noble - serious purposes.
  • Bebas, Bangers and Alfa Slab are perfect to make it pop.

Choose the perfect color:

  • Black / White: Neutral and professional.
  • Red: Attracts a lot of attention and could have a warning effect
  • Yellow: Yellow appears bright, cheerful, friendly, optimistic, and open.
  • Blue: Is said to have an emotionally balancing, calming and moderating effect. Blue also looks sporty, technical and dynamic.
  • Orange: Stands for light and warmth and security.
  • Green: Stands for nature, health, satisfaction, happiness and hope.
