Subtitling is also among the forms of professional translation services and here words are seen on the screen sometimes different from the ones heard on the audio or the words on audio may be the same as those on the screen. In other words it is the printed version of a dialogue on film or television. These words are called sub titles. This means that a deaf person can understand what is being said in the visual even though they cannot hear. In the same way those who do not understand the language spoken are able to because of the sub titles in their own language. I am sure the move Titanic has several versions with subtitles.
