"Request for Multi-Language Captioning Assistance"

Go to solution

 

Hello there,

I recently launched my first course, which is doing quite well. I noticed that automatic English captions were generated, and I'm interested in adding captions in other languages, particularly Arabic, French, Hindi, German, Chinese, and Japanese. Is there a way to generate captions for these languages automatically, similar to the English ones?

 

Thank you!

Best regards,
Abu Hamzah

Hi @Abuhamzah Thanks for asking! At this time, our system can only generate captions in English, Spanish, and Portuguese for courses taught in the respective languages. For example, if a course is taught in English, only English auto-generated captions can be added to it, not Spanish or Portuguese captions. For more information on the auto-generated subtitles program, please review this support article.

 

We do have a captions tool, which you can use to create and upload captions in different languages, you also have the option to download the English captions from your course, have them translated, and then upload them back to your course. Adding captions to your video lectures is a great way of increasing student engagement and accessibility for your courses. You can learn how to do this here.

Hi Eliana,

 

Your first response link gives this information below:

 

How are the automatic subtitles created?

The automatically generated subtitles are generated using speech recognition technology.

Which course languages are the auto-generated subtitles being created for? And when will they be added to my course?

English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Portuguese auto-generated subtitles will be generated for non-language learning courses instructed in these respective languages.
The auto-generated subtitles will be created for the course after it receives 20 or more enrollments on the marketplace.

 

Please Note: All of my Courses have more than 20 enrolled students and I would like all of these languages added as auto-generated subtitles to my courses. Please advise how this I can create the sub-titles in these languages available above.

 

Thanking you in advance,

Jennifer
