Get credit for subtitle & 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

Note: If you're in YouTube Studio beta, select Creator Studio Classic in the left-hand menu to follow these steps.

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

  1. Sign in to YouTube.
  2. Go to Creator Studio Classic.
  3. In the left-hand panel, click Your contributions.
  4. In the Submissions or Drafts tab, find the video that you want to remove your credited name from.
  5. Untick the box in the Credit column.
