Translate your own video titles and descriptions

You can add translated video titles and descriptions to your videos so that your fans can find your videos in their own language. Translating your videos makes them more accessible to viewers from outside your home country/region and helps you build a global audience.

Use the tools below to have your video's title and description shown in the right language to the right users. If you use YouTube's Content Manager to manage claimed content, you can upload a CSV file to localise video titles and descriptions.

  5. Select Add language and select the language that you'd like to translate to.
