Special attention should be paid to end users when drafting subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing. Understanding the metalinguistic knowledge of deaf people, whose language has no written form, is a much needed point of departure when devising subtitles, so that the exercise becomes worthwhile for those whose first language has no fixed or standarised written representation.
