Get credit for subtitle and CC contributions

After submitting a subtitle or CC contribution, you can be a contributor in the video's description on the watch page.

Approve credit display

To have this option, you need to have a channel on YouTube. When you approve, reject or submit content, 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 will be shown in the video's description. It also shows your work in every language that the description is available in.

If your name isn't on the list

If your name isn't on the list of credits, it may be because you didn't add enough to the currently published version. The version that you added to might also not be live yet.

Remove credits

You can always opt out of your name appearing in the contributor credits.

  1. Open your contributions page.
  2. Find the video that you want to remove your name from.
  3. Untick the box in the Credit column.
