Robin Good: YouTube has just made available today the automatic captioning feature to six more European languages: German, Italian, French, Portuguese, Russian and Dutch.


By utilizing this feature, which can be activated on any video by clicking a simple icon on the bottom of the video player, YouTube will automatically transcribe and display the spoken content of any video in one of the languages supported.


From the official announcement: “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.”
