- Always try to read your subtitles yourself: Are they easy to read? Is the information transmitted?
- Does the speed feel appropriate and unhurried, does the viewer also have time to look at the picture?

Look through the subtitles and make sure there is space for the subtitles
- Make sure you leave space at the bottom of the screen for subtitles so that the lines don’t cover other relevant content.
- Always proofread subtitles produced with automatic speech recognition!
- Consider how much you include colloquialisms and filler words.
Don’t leave too much text, lines or characters in your reply
- Do not leave too much text, too many lines or too many characters in one replica.
- It is better to split into two or more separate lines, so it is easier to follow the subtitles.
- Make the top row shorter than the bottom row. This way, moving the eye from the top row to the bottom row is faster.
- Rather align two slightly shorter lines than a long top line and a short bottom line or vice versa.
