How to translate video subtitles

See below for a step-by step-breakdown on how to translate your subtitles:

  1. Export the SRT or any other subtitle file from your YouTube video course or other source. Learn more about exporting and importing subtitle files.
  2. Sign in to your Smartcat account and select Translate a document on the homepage - follow these instructions for more.
  3. Select the source and target languages, and upload the files you want to translate.
