  • TRANSLATIONS TUTORIAL

 

Youtube Community Translations Tutorial

Answering the question, How easy is it to submit translations on YouTube

This is a topic I wanted to write up with a procedure since the BoodleBobs channel are looking for fans of bedtime stories, who would like to contribute to the goal of making our stories freely available and in as many languages as possible.

 

 

Old School Method

The .txt .vtt file. Some people prefer this method of updating a text file and sending it in to us.   The text files are timecoded with the existing English and it is a case up updating the translation line by line and sending it back to us.   Text files can be found on our translations page

 

New Method

Add your translations directly on to the time coded video.     Its really easy (uh.. apart from the translating bit) and this simple step by step tutorial hopefully will show you how.
