Get credit for subtitle & CC contributions

After submitting a subtitle or CC contribution, you can have your name show in list of contributors in the video’s description on the watch page. 

Approve credit display

In order to see this option, you need to have a channel on YouTube. When you approve, reject or submit content, just make sure that the box for Credit my contribution is ticked. 

Once the version of the video that you worked on is published, your name and channel link show in the video’s description. It also shows the language you’ve contributed to in every language that the description is available in.

If you don't see your name in the list

If your name doesn't show in the list of credits, it may be because you didn’t contribute enough to the currently published version or the version that you contributed to isn't live yet.
