Translating your captions into another language

First, navigate to the transcript tab for the scene that you'd like to translate. Look for the Translate button at the top, it looks like this:

Once you click Translate, you'll see a modal pop-up that asks you to select the language you'd like to translate.

Once you've selected the language from the dropdown menu, click on Translate. This might take a moment, but you'll see a window appear that has all of your captions in the new language!

This window is where you'll make any corrections that you need to, rather than the transcript tab. The Transcript tab will still be in the original language, to match the audio from the clip.

To edit your translated captions, select or click on any of the words, then click Correct:

Once you click Correct, all of the words that you selected will be editable. Just type to fix any punctuation or bad translation errors that we may have made! Once all of your captions look good, click Apply.

Now your captions will be translated! If you want to edit the appearance of your captions on the scene, you can do that using the controls at the top of the transcript tab, the same as usual.

If you need to edit the caption text or remove the translated captions, you can access the translate window again by clicking on the same Translate button at the top. Removing the translated captions will mean that your captions return to the original language that the transcript was generated in.
