This is a workflow which is quite vague, but expressly so, discussed at the vxmission in amsterdam.

Create an "ivdb" subtitle database based on the Metadata Standard to act as a decentralised repository on Subtitle files for Video files. See Harcesz's IVDB original proposal.


Use either subtitle creation clients or online editing tools like DotSub, or an implementation of Subtitle horse to allow video collectives and translators to collaborate on these project.

Try to keep track of all subtitles of the video file, make sure they are online, link to them from the "ivdb".

Foster a community to use and update the "ivdb"

Implement a tool (probably static feed data and db aggregation) to allow the exchange of information from other databases into the "ivdb" and out again.
