Abstract: Netflix is the world's leading internet entertainment service with over 148 million paid memberships in over 190 countries enjoying TV series, documentaries and feature films across a wide variety of genres and languages. Since Netflix first began its international expansion in 2010, localization has played a critical role in bringing joy to global audiences. This presentation will cover the best practices learned through developing and refining a Unicode based timed text processing pipeline, as well as the role of various timed text formats and standards in helping us realize this scalable end-to-end pipeline. In addition, we will discuss the business and tooling strategy for creating and reviewing localized content at scale. This overview will provide an understanding of how the localization ecosystem balances the challenges of scale while prioritizing unique aspects of audiences and languages.
