YouTube tools to translate your content

On average, over two-thirds of a creator's audience watch time comes from outside of their home area. To grow your international audience, make your videos more accessible in other languages with our translation tools:

  • Translated metadata may increase a video’s reach and discoverability. Translated video titles and descriptions can show up in YouTube search results for viewers who speak those other languages.
  • Viewers who speak other languages can also find and watch any of your videos with subtitles.
  • Same language captions make your videos available for hard-of-hearing or deaf viewers, non-native speakers, and viewers in loud environments.
