  1. Dubbing/Subtitling are integral part of cultural transfer between all countries.
    Though the debate is always between preference of dubbing or subtitling..each of it require high level of artistic/technical input to ensure the final output is more local in every sense.

    Dubbing brings more life to characters of a film than subtitles though a bad dubbed film can be a nightmare.
