FILM TRANSLATION: SUBTITLES (ALSO FOR THE HARD-OF-HEARING),
SCREENPLAYS, AUDIO DESCRIPTIONS (PRODUCED IN OUR IN-HOUSE STUDIO),
PRESS MATERIAL, DUBBING & VOICE-OVERS AS WELL AS CCSL/CDSL

WAY FILM TRANSLATION SPECIALIZES IN THE FIRST-CLASS TRANSLATION
OF MOVIES AND PREMIUM TV.

Way Film provided the English and French subtitles for the last three German contestants in Cannes, including "TONI ERDMAN" by Maren Ade (2016) and "IN THE FADE" by Fatih Akin and "WESTERN" by Valeska Grisebach (both 2017).
For this year’s edition of the festival,
we worked on Ulrich Koehler’s "IN MY ROOM."

After a win at the Golden Globes ("IN THE FADE", Fatih Akin),
a first movie processed by Way Film has now won an Oscar:
"A FANTASTIC WOMAN" (Sebastian Leilo).
The shortlist even featured two more of our customers:
"FOXTROT" (Samuel Maoz) and "HUMAN FLOW" (Ai Weiwei).

Four movies translated and subtitled by Way Film have been nominated a combined 12 times for the German Film Award 2018,
two of which for Best Feature Film.
In 2017, movies translated by Way Film received 21 nominations.
