Resumen:   People all over the world, especially young viewers, rely on non-professional subtitles to access audiovisual content. This research investigates the reception of professional and non-professional subtitles among university students with different levels of proficiency in English. Three versions of subtitles were included: the professional DVD subtitles distributed in Spain and two non-professional subtitle versions: one Spanish and the other Latin-American. An initial survey, which obtained 332 responses, was used to screen the population and test their level of English. For the second stage, which consisted of an eye-tracking experiment and an interview, 52 participants (26 with a low level of English and 26 with a high level of English) had their eyes tracked while they were watching three clips from a popular TV show. Each clip was shown with a different type of professional or non-professional subtitling and participants answered a comprehension questionnaire after each of them. The findings show that the type of subtitles does not affect the distribution of attention, but the professional subtitles were received with shorter mean fixation durations. The participants' performance with the professional and the Latin-American non-professional versions were similar and gave better scores than with the Iberian nonprofessional version. The eye-tracking measurements show that the level of proficiency in English affects subtitle-reading behavior. The participants with low proficiency had a more standardized behavior and exhibited a high degree of reliance on the subtitles. The highly proficient participants' behavior has more variation, with some participants depending on the subtitles as much as the other group and other participants with almost no attention to the subtitles. The level of proficiency in the source language and the participants' perceived effort to read the subtitles were identified to have an effect on their enjoyment of the audiovisual content. The results from this study show that, from the audience's perspective, nonprofessional subtitles can provide results similar to professional subtitles. Additionally, the study shows that the level of proficiency in the source language affects the subtitlereading behavior and that viewers might have some degree of individual control over subtitle reading.
