    Hi Tino,

    There's still nothing here regarding main title and opening credits sequence, especially for languages that do not use Latin script. Thanks.

    Updated Section 6.2.a

    Do not italicize:

    a. During B-roll footage in a documentary.Avoid going back and forth between italics when the speaker is on and off screen. If the speaker is on-camera for part of the scene do not italicize.

    Hi, Tino, Criterion update:

    We are removing this:

    CRITERION If there is onscreen text on the lower third of the screen, raise the event by 1-2 lines instead of top positioning if possible.

    Replace with:

    CRITERION If reformatting older file that used other-than top/bottom positioning, update to current style.

    As mentioned in the SDH guide, Tino, we have a high-volume of old files with specialty positioning that they upgrade for blu-ray release and this will head off a lot of questions if we can have some note here..!

    Actually some files have left/right and other non-center horizontal positioning, so I don't know if stating that instead of "other-than top/bottom" is needed. (Feel like it should be covered but in case you want to state it.)

    Hi Tino, I think this article should address the question of main title translation and opening credits translation, in particular for non-Latin script. Thanks.
