The process of dubbing is used to translate foreign-language films into the audience's language, so that audiences can watch these movies.
Dubbed translations are matched carefully with lip movements in a film. It is often confused with voiceover translation by people who do not know what it means; however, this term refers exclusively to audio dialogue inside of video formats and does not refer at all to translated dialogues outside videos or without any vocal components such as text on screen for example subtitles (or closed captions).
Dubbing relies on accurate matching between spoken words and mouth movement since most viewers will rely on visuals first when watching an audiovisual production before processing sound separately through their ears -which isn't always easy because there may be differences
Subtitles are translations for people who don't speak the language displayed in the media.. Subtitles are what you see in a video that tells you what is being said in another language.
You need people who can do a good job at this because it is not easy to translate from one language into another.
When dubbing is translated into a foreign language, it mimics the lip movements of actors in films to show accurate translations. But what's voiceover?
Voiceovers are not always considered dubbed and they can be subtitled as well!
