It seems to be a lot of work if somebody is adding subtitles for movies. Do they follow the same procedure?

Just Curious.

It is a lot of work. Subtitles for movies involve translating from one language to another. Language specialists are hired to do the translating. You probably noticed some DVDs and Blu-rays offer a half-dozen or more language options. That's a lot of work!

Even the job of transcribing a spoken language to the same language in text form is very time consuming.
