Hi,

I created subtitles for a video - which worked very well. Now, as we have a multlingual audience I woud like to provide the audience the option to select between different localized subtitles when watching the video, instead of publishing three videos, each with burned in subtitles in one language. Basically like in every movie you can stream where you select subtitles off, langugae 1, language 2 etc. 

Is this possible? If yes is there any guidance how to create those different subtitles? 

Thanks.

Thanks Joost - this would be the solution when I want to have several languages displayed in one video at the same time. What I was thinking of is a drop down menu (like in Netflix when streaming a video) where I can select, which subtitle is displayed.

That sort of thing has to be added by the distribution service/servers. I sat through an explanation once at NAB ... and it was way over my experience/knowledge of tech details.

It depends on the playback service. But for Youtube, create each language in a separate caption track. Export an srt for each language. Upload the srt to Youtube in the subtitle area for your movie.

 

Lots of particulars and gotchas. Ask more questions as you test this workflow....

Hey there,

It's awesome that the subtitles worked smoothly for your video! Providing viewers with the option to choose between different localized subtitles is a fantastic idea for a multilingual audience. Instead of creating separate videos, you can explore platforms that support multiple subtitle tracks, allowing users to pick their preferred language, just like in streaming movies.

As for guidance, it depends on the platform you're using. Popular ones like YouTube or Vimeo usually have features to upload multiple subtitle tracks. You'd typically upload each set of subtitles as a separate file for each language.

And if you're looking for an efficient solution, video translator tools like Wavel AI could come in handy. They can translate your existing subtitles into different languages, streamlining the process. Just double-check for accuracy to ensure a seamless viewer experience.

Hope this helps! Feel free to reach out if you've got more questions.
