How to Make Subtitles for Your Videos

I’ve been recently involved in tackling international markets for one of my websites. And the task of creating subtitles came up. I went looking around for software and ultimately decided they were too much work.

  • The software loads up your video, then has you typing the text and duration out. 


Like I said, it’s too much work. So I found another option that’s much faster.

  1. Load your video onto youtube (put it in private if you don’t want people to see it)
  2. go here and enter in your youtube video address:
  3. Download the transcription as SRT file
  4. Now open up the SRT file in a text editor and fix the words to match what’s being said in the video.
  5. Get a translator to edit and save the SRT file into other languages.


That’s it! How easy was that?!
