Buy translations for videos, titles, & descriptions

Translated captions, titles, and descriptions for your videos help you reach a more global audience. You can compare prices and purchase translations from vendors in your Video Manager.

Tip: If you don't want to purchase translations, you can also manually add translations to your videos or let your community contribute subtitles

Use the "Translations" menu
  1. Go to your Video Manager.
  2. Next to the video you want to translate select Edit. Make sure the video isn't set to private and has at least one subtitle or closed caption track.
  3. Under the video, select the Translations tab.
  4. Select Buy translation and confirm the original language of the video title, descriptions, and captions already entered.
  5. Check the boxes next to all the items that you want translations for.
  6. Next, check the boxes next to all the languages you want the title, description, and captions translated into.
  7. Choose a vendor and follow the on-screen instructions to pay. Keep in mind that many vendors have a minimum order price.
Use the "Subtitles & CC" menu

You can also buy translations for your video’s captions, title, and descriptions from the Subtitles and CC tab of the Video Manager.

When these translations are done, they're automatically published to your video and you'll get an email update. If you selected more than one language, each language will be published as soon as it's complete.

Coming soon: You'll be able to request translations for videos in bulk in Video Manager. We're also working on a feature that will let you buy captions in the video's original language. Check back here for updates.
