Resum:

The aim of this research is twofold. First, to define certain quality-related aspects of live subtitling on TV and how to benchmark them, and second to describe the NERstar Editor. Regarding the first point, two questions arise: what is meant by 'quality-related aspects of live subtitling on TV' and how to define quality benchmarking. Attention should also be paid to the different preferences and expectations of the countries with respect to quality-related criteria in live subtitling on TV, and the many differences in legislation, funding and production models. Language always works within a culture, hence distinct cultural background will also have an impact in quality benchmarking. In other words: quality is a highly complex interplay of very contrasting ideas and often controversial issues. As to the second point, the aim is to present NERstar Editor, a software solution that has specifically been developed for assessing and improving the quality in live subtitling on TV linked to accuracy, delay, speed and display issues.
