Translated Subtitles for Educators


In K-12 schools, universities, online courses, and technical training schools there are often a variety of students who don’t all speak the same primary language. To help facilitate the difference in languages, many teachers choose to add translated subtitles to the lectures, classes, and learning materials they post online. Subcaptioner offers educators an affordable and fast way to translate subtitles thanks to our advanced speech-to-text technology.

Translated Subtitles for Businesses


Businesses produce a wide variety of video content, from training videos and recorded company meetings to marketing and social media videos. International businesses can benefit from translated subtitles by helping their main content reach multiple languages and countries easily. Translated subtitles allow businesses to expand their audience and ensure that all of their employees have equal access to important information.

Translated Subtitles for Creators


Online video creators are producing more content now than ever, making the online video space incredibly competitive. To earn money off of their video content, creators need to expand their audience. Translated captions help creators to reach viewers in foreign countries and increase engagement amongst foreign language speakers. With over 40 languages available to choose from, SubCaptioner helps creators to truly spread their audience worldwide. 

Translated Subtitles for Religious Organizations


Many religious organizations are looking for ways to spread their message across the globe. Translated subtitles are an affordable and easy way to take video content from religious organizations and spread it to foreign countries. It’s also an easy way for houses of worship to reach foreign language speakers in their own backyard. By adding global subtitles to their messages and teachings, more people both far and wide can access them for learning. 

Translated Subtitles for Government


Every government institute is responsible for sharing important information with its constituents. More often than not, these constituents speak multiple languages, or speak a language different from English. It’s important for governments to provide video content that is available in multiple languages to ensure that everyone in their area can access the information. SubCaptioner helps governments to translate videos with ease on a secure platform that’s also affordable. 

Why you should add translated subtitles to your video

Translated subtitles are an affordable tool that video creators can use to help their content reach a wider audience in more countries and improve search rankings across languages. It’s also cheaper than translating speech through dubbing, and with SubCaptioner you have access to over 40 languages!


Videos that include translated subtitles are automatically more accessible to people in foreign countries and who speak foreign languages. By simply turning on subtitles in a different language, individuals from around the world can access any video in any language.


Videos that are translated into various languages can be used amongst a larger audience. Consider a training video for a business that has employees around the world. Instead of having to create the video with different speech languages, simply adding translated subtitles allows them to use this video with their global team without the extra work.

SEO Performance

Caption and transcription files are used by search engines to crawl videos for keywords and rank them higher in searches. This also includes translated subtitles which are used by search engines to rank videos for searches in foreign languages. Adding foreign language subtitles to your videos helps to boost SEO performance and a video’s performance online overall.

Engagement Rates

When a video is made accessible across multiple languages, more people are able to share, like, and comment on the video. This improves its engagement rates which help to improve how the video performs in SEO rankings and viewership.


More people can share a video with friends, family, coworkers, etc. when the video is available in their spoken language. More shares on a video improve its performance on platforms such as YouTube and help to get a video organically in front of more people.
