YouTube Adds Six Languages To Their Automatic Captions


Google has announced that automatic captions on YouTube are now available in six additional European languages; French, Italian, German, Dutch, Portuguese, and Russian.

YouTube now covers a broad range of European languages since these options have been added. Although the automatic captions are far from perfect, they are likely to improve over time.
The captioning feature was originally only available in English when the option was launched in 2009. The video sharing site also now supports Spanish, Japanese and Korean.

Google says that “Automatic captions can be a starting point, where creators can then download them for editing, or edit them in-line on YouTube. Creators can also upload plain-text transcripts in these languages, and the same technology will generate automatically-synchronized captions.”
To choose the language that the captions are shown in, you have to select the closed caption button on a video that has this feature available to it.

YouTube say that they already offer about 200 million videos that come with automatic and human-created captions.

Do you use captions in YouTube videos?
