As a video creator on a regular basis, I really liked this online tool. Now, all the videos which I so patiently create with a lot of time and effort can have a much larger audience. People who are looking for the kind of topics I make the videos on can watch mine too, though our languages may be different. All they have to do is turn on the preferred language and it will play in that particular language.

For example, a video made in English can be watched in French, or German or Spanish, thus increasing the audience base manifolds. 

How it works – The Dubbr

It is a very user friendly process. All you have to do is create an account, and login. As it is an online tool, and compatible with all browsers, you don’t have to install any software. All your videos can be modified or enhanced in the cloud.

Using the tool called the ‘dubbr’, you can convert your video into a multilingual one. You can add your own audio tracks or use the voice over feature directly from Alugha’s dubbing studio. This means that you do not have to hire the services of a professional translator, thus reducing your cost.

To translate the language of the video into other languages, you have to record different segments with the help of a microphone or smartphone. 

Transcribe and give subtitles

After uploading a video on Alugha’s cloud hosting, you can transcribe your videos too. All you have to do is add every line of your original language into the text editor or the timeline to create segments and transcribe.

After translating the text, you can compare with the original text and make corrections.

The language tracks have the facility to add audio and subtitles. The tracks act like storage which is filled up with the translated video and text. With the language text view, you can create synced subtitle translations automatically. This feature is very convenient and efficient and makes your job hassle free. 

Speech to text feature

This is another feature which speeds up work as you don’t have to type every single word of your script. You can simply speak the content and the tool transcribes the content automatically. This makes generating subtitles convenient and efficient.

Videos which have subtitles are easier to understand and have better response from viewers, especially if your video has informative content.
