Smartcat is your gateway to multimedia localization! We know how important videos and audio are in today’s digital-first, visual, streaming-obsessed world. That’s why we’ve made it very easy to translate videos and audio with our AI transcription feature.
Now, you can upload your videos and audio files right into Smartcat and we will convert it into subtitles with timecodes. You don’t need to extract the text file and upload it separately. After transcription, you can see translated subtitles in a real-time video preview. We support more than 80 file types, including most video, and audio (not to mention subtitles) formats so you never have to convert them beforehand or worry about distorted information.
Very soon we will release a source editing feature for subtitles! With this update, you will be able to edit transcribed text for typos or other mistakes. Watch this space!
