We are very proud to launch a major new Amara.org feature– free crowd subtitling for every personal YouTube user! Want to make your videos accessible to people around the world who speak a different language? Want deaf and hard of hearing users to be able to watch? Just connect your YouTube account to Amara and invite your viewers to help. Whenever subtitles get created, they will be synced directly to your YouTube channel. It takes about 10 seconds to connect your YouTube account.
Unless you speak every language in the world, you need your viewers help to translate the video in their language and help get you more viewers. Any moderately popular YouTube video will get lots of viewer subtitling help.
Amara’s volunteer community is getting big– some Khan Academy videos on Amara are translated into more than 40 languages! Want to watch Gangam Style in Esperanto? Amara has it. Twitter uses Amara to subtitle their product launch videos (click the ‘cc’ in the player), Netflix uses Amara to subtitle movies and tv shows, and TED Talks has more than 11,000 volunteers in their Amara translation community. If you post any videos on YouTube, this is how you can help the world to watch!
