Subtitling is one of the most used methods in translating foreign films shown in movie theaters in Turkey. The other method, dubbing, is generally preferred when the film is for children. Subtitling and dubbing, two main methods of audiovisual translation, have always been compared by the scholars of the field, and at the same time there have been some countries that preferred one method to the other.
