Reel In the Audience

Facilitate viewer immersion

with flawless subtitle and caption editing.


A clip from a Hulu trailer about the tv drama, The Handmaid's Tale. The shot shows Helen Moss in character of Offred with a very confused look on her face. The closed caption below incorrectly reads: "my name is offered I had another name (next line:) ladies have to let you go the wall now.

Captioning should not look like

"throwing magnetic letters on a fridge."*


Get Noticed for the Right Reasons

Reel Words, run by Vanessa Wells, is the only subtitle and caption editing company providing quality control for flawless English text because it's the only one with extensive editorial and titling experience behind it. Translators and transcribers are terrific at their craft but, like authors of books, they're not trained to review text for correctness, consistency, and clarity.

Filmmaking is expensive. But you can't afford to become one of those online memes because of caption or subtitle errors. Impress distributors or stakeholders with professional-looking, accurate subtitles, captions, or titles, and enjoy rave reviews from audiences by fulfilling the growing demand for No More Craptions!


"Thanks so much again for all your helpyou're a true lifesaver."

Since 1993


My mission is to advocate for copy editing excellence until captioning and subtitling get their own category in the Academy Awards.

I advocate for the Deaf, deafened and hard of hearing communities because I believe in full and equal access to cultural content for all caption users. Viewers deserve fully immersive access to foreign-language video via correct subtitles.
