Subtitlers in the credits?

I'm looking for subtitler credits in films released from the 1930s to the 1960s.

What I'm looking for is to identify the specific subtitlers of specific versions, partly original release versions; I've got lots of press listings but am having trouble in tracking down versions which actually have the subtitler credit. The goal at the end of it all is to find ways of working with archives to preserve and show historically significant subtitled versions.

The kind of things I'm looking for are this Mai Harris title credit from Senso, and this Herman Weinberg title credit from Zauber der Boheme/The Charm of La Bohème. They should display at the bottom of this message.

Some names that might come up include: Harris, Weinberg, Julia Wolf, C. Dennis Freeman, John Erskine, Charles Clement, Harold J. Salemson, Rose Sokol, Ursule Molinaro, George Slocombe, Anis Ebaid, Suzanne Chantal.

If anyone has in their collections any versions which credits one of these, or anyone else, I'd be really interested to hear from you.

WIFE FOR A NIGHT (1952) (on YT) has English subtitles by Herman Weinberg. Only noticed this as wondered what the film was, then noted it for a friend who is interested in subtitling...

I found your post as I sought information on Mai Harris and Julia Wolf. I'm researching the Academy Cinema which was foremost in bringing continental films to the UK (following the Film Society) and Mai Harris worked for the cinema as well as being a subtitler in her own right.
Can I ask if you are researching these subtitlers? I'm looking to understand the state of subtitling around this time. Perhaps we could chat?
PS If anyone reading this knows anything about Mai Harris specifically I would love to hear from you :)
