Translating Subtitles With Amara

  • 0:00 - 0:02
    When you are translating subtitles,
  • 0:02 - 0:04
    you can view the reference
    language on the left,
  • 0:04 - 0:07
    and type your translation
    into the middle panel.
  • 0:07 - 0:10
    Notice that you translation will
    automatically have timing information,
  • 0:10 - 0:14
    and all you will need to do is translate
    the blank spaces in the middle,
  • 0:14 - 0:16
    that match with the reference
    subtitles on the left.
  • 0:16 - 0:20
    When you are done translating
    each line of the reference language,
  • 0:20 - 0:24
    move on to the next step
    by clicking "Yes, translate the title".
  • 0:25 - 0:28
    Then you can move onto
    syncing your translation.
  • 0:29 - 0:32
    You can customize your timing to
    make it match the video perfectly,
  • 0:32 - 0:36
    by clicking and dragging
    subtitles on the timeline,
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    or using the Up and Down Arrows
    on your keyboard.
  • 0:39 - 0:41
    You can also click the "+" icon
  • 0:41 - 0:45
    to create a new line
    between two existing lines.
  • 0:45 - 0:49
    This works great for when you may need
    to include relevant on-screen text,
  • 0:49 - 0:51
    or any audio that may have been missed.
  • 0:52 - 0:56
    If you need to re-match the reference
    language and your translation
  • 0:56 - 1:00
    You can do so by clicking the Lock icon,
    re-scrolling your translation to fit,
  • 1:00 - 1:04
    and then clicking the lock icon
    again to scroll them together.
  • 1:04 - 1:07
    When you are done adjusting the sync,
  • 1:07 - 1:10
    click "Start Reviewing" to make sure
    everything looks just right.
  • 1:10 - 1:13
    Once you've finished with the review,
  • 1:13 - 1:16
    hit the "Complete" button
    to submit your subtitles.
