NEXTClub is the industry pro’s NEXT best thing
The creators and worldwide distributors behind SubtitleNEXT technology, PBT EU and Profuz Digital, have launched dedicated member site NEXTClub to connect user groups all around the world. NEXTclub was designed with the intention of offering an online gathering place for translators, subtitlers, interpreters and captionists. Freely open to everyone who registers, it welcomes first-time users to experts from every profession and background. Exciting zones to explore in the NEXTClub lounge include NEXTblog, NEXTnews, NEXTtips, NEXTbreak, NEXTacademy, NEXTcommunity and NEXTmembership which can be accessed at https://subtitlenext.com/club/
The NEXTClub is fondly termed the “home of subtitling” by current members and presents a rich resource of information and the chance to become friends with other SubtitleNEXT product users and pros, as well as share tips and get questions answered while having a lot of fun at the same time.
“NEXTClub is a unique digital space to do business for the ambitious, or just to unwind after hours; – NEXTClub is at the heart of our network. Designed for pros by pros, they’re online havens where members can take time out, or put work in; places to meet a network of brilliant, like-minded people or use them as virtual spaces where significant things happen every day to enhance your work life.” Declares CEO and managing partner Ivanka Vassileva.
The NEXTacademy is evolving into an educational space aimed at equipping students and industry newcomers with the tools to achieve their goals and build confidence along the way. The team behind the SubtitleNEXT software are passionate about preparing students for the workforce by providing access to critical skills they need to qualify for high-demand and high-skill jobs in subtitling and captioning careers.
NEXTacademy manager Eleonora Svetozarova expands on the concept, “We opened the NEXTClub to provide an ideal hub to host our subtitling community. It is a workspace that doesn’t feel like a workspace. NEXTClub exemplifies our vision where everyone is welcome to experience the latest updates in SubtitleNEXT modules, platforms, services and inspiring educational programs and exclusive blogs online.”
Adding further, “The goal is to shine a spotlight on inspirational individuals. We are proud to showcase work that supports, empowers and connects the community positively. We are excited to embrace a growing community and invite anyone interested in the industry to join NEXTClub and benefit from it as well as contribute creative ideas. We warmly welcome all members on board with our incredible partners.”
SubtitleNEXT is quickly being adopted at many well-respected organisations such as Italy’s IT Pros Subtitles® ,The European School of Translation, the New Bulgarian University and Listen Up foundation as well as the largest production house in the Benelux region Videohouse in Belgium, plus many more.
What professionals are saying about SubtitleNEXT
Andrea Spila, Director of Studies at the European School of Translation stated, “We are honoured to partner with PBT EU and very excited to start this joint venture. We are sure that our students will greatly benefit by using SubtitleNEXT during our courses and that they will be fully equipped subtitlers when they enter the industry.”

It’s a proven and trusted product with over 20 years of industry expertise behind it. It is managed by a highly motivated team who are driven to provide industry professionals with the very best technology. Their ethos is reflected in how they equip experts in the field to make a positive difference in people’s lives. That is why we are proud to adopt technology like SubtitleNEXT in our department at NBU.”
Elisabeth Barber, Subtitler/Translator at Videohouse currently using the SubtitleNEXT software reveals: “We have been using SubtitleNEXT for a couple of months now, mainly for creating subtitles and proofreading existing subtitles. It’s still relatively new to us, so we still have to get accustomed to it a bit more, but it has already proven to be a decent subtitling tool.”
IT Pros Subtitles®’ experienced subtitler Monica Paolillo who trained a group of translation professionals to master the software notes, “…I am therefore very proud to play a part in such a positive educational scheme using SubtitleNEXT. It does make the hard work enjoyable. This course sets a great example of how applications like SubtitleNEXT can be applied in a business case scenario within a fast-paced high-pressure area …What I like about SubtitleNEXT is that, once you’ve gone through the necessary learning curve, it has potential to do exactly what you want it to do, responding to your own commands and keyboard shortcuts, tailoring your subtitler experience throughout the process, offering “nice-to-have” customisation features that do contribute to making your hard work enjoyable…Full marks to you, SubtitleNEXT. I’d encourage all professionals to get up to speed with it as it is a great tool for our profession.”
