YouTube Auto-Captions Now Supports 6 European Languages

YouTube users, especially our beloved readers in France, will be thrilled to find out that Google’s video streaming service is now supporting six European Languages. The news follows after Google updated the service to support Japanese, Spanish, and Korean languages. Today’s update adds support to German, Italian, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Dutch. This means that automatic caption support for YouTube videos are now available for the said languages. To utilize the nifty feature, simply click the closed caption button on any video.

Now in 10 languages, automatic captions are an important first step in the path toward high-quality captions for the 72 hours of video people upload per minute. As automatic captions will have some errors, creators also have several tools to improve the quality of their captions. 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.
