 +In general subtitles can be easily read, if a line is not more than around 42 chars.
 +Since we use and format the transcripts from the etherpads you don't have to take care of linebreaks. Please insert as few linebreaks as possible. Please only insert linebreaks for speaker changes or sounds and when the etherpad forces you to.
 +
 +In short: Fewer linebreaks is better.
 +
 +
 +If you are working on a subtitle in amara during the quality control phase, please do not change the double lines with a maximum line length of 42 characters. The subtitles are formatted as a continous text intentionally. This creates text blocks which are visible for a as long as possible period of time. This improves the readability of the subtitles, especially for fast tech talks.
 +=== Intro and outro ===
 +
 +The video intro for the talks as well as the credits can also be experienced acustically. As we'd like to have all subtitles have a minimum of corporate identity, we suggest you use for these:
 +
 +<file plain>
 +*33C3 preroll music*
 +
 +*postroll music*
 +</file>
 +
 +for German respectively:
 +<file plain>
 +*33C3 Vorspannmusik*

 +*Abspannmusik*
