Forbrydelsen III: IceHunter Vs BBC Four Subtitles

Interesting how the subtitles diverge.

IceHunter:

BBC Four:

No mention of the election countdown! That should have been. It adds tension to the plot.

IceHunter:

BBC Four:

Is there a difference between Sergeant and Inspector?

IceHunter:

BBC Four:

BBC Four seems to be softer in rhetoric.

IceHunter:

BBC Four:

Again, BBC Four seems to be softer in rhetoric.

These are the only differences I intend to point out. I thought it was an interesting contrast.

One thing to note about the BBC Four subs is that I’m able to match the individual words that sounds like the English subtitles, like “vindow” for “window.”

By the way, if you’re looking for the BBC Four versions, here are the filenames:

The.Killing.S03E01.PDTV.XviD.TM
The.Killing.S03E02.PDTV.XviD.TM

These aren’t 720p. I can’t provide links. Search engines are your friend.

    interesting i feel bbc 4 is more basic translation as a whole than ice hunters detailed subs with word for word translation. Both are good. Still lookinf for episode 8 subs IceHunter come on release them now theyve already aired ep 9

    Compared with a lot of other programs that we watch with subitiles, Forbrydelsen is very verbose, particularly in the political scenes. There’s a lot of dialogue. You’re so busy concentrating on the volume of subtitles that you aren’t looking at the picture. So maybe the BBC is simply trying to reduce the amount that you have to read. I think if I was doing it I would also be tempted to water it down a little. On the other hand, you’re right, it does change the feel of it a little. Compare this to other films/series where there are no English subtitles, and I have used MultiTrans to translate subtitles from another language, IceHunter is doing an infinitely better job.

    Does anyone have the subs for Episode 9?

      Nope. You see the post at the top of the blog hasn’t been updated yet. There are still no subs nor any USG AVI version of episode 9.

    Thanks for the post! Shows the good work that Icehunter and the community is doing. Kudos!

    Any chance to get hold of episode 9 subs?

    I tried five minutes of the IceHunter titles before giving up. Someone apparently has no idea of how much text can be read while watching TV. (The answer is about 12 characters per second – 14 max.) This is more like 20. I saw some errors, but the amount of text was just too much to fit or follow.
