Could anyone tell whether this sentence is gramatically correct or not -

" Subtitles are usually preffered over dubbing because you're able to relate to the emotions with preserving the originality of the movie"

Thanks

It's not exactly "wrong" grammatically but it's not idiomatic English either. I would suggest something like:

Subtitles are usually preferred to dubbing because viewers can relate to the (the? their?) emotions while the movie's originality is preserved.
