Hi Elisa, 

Thank you for having posted this also on the forum, which will allow me to refer to your question if someone else asks. 

100% safe: 
  • If the video is on YouTube, you can activate the  transcript generated by the automatic captions: click on the ... under  the player, right, then click on Open Transcript. 
  • When the transcript appears, click on the vertical ...  right and choose "Toggle timestamps" to remove the timestamps: you can  now copy the transcript and paste it in a .txt file.
  • Make sure that the subtitle lines are separated by a blank line and save as an UTF8 encoded .txt file
  • Upload the .txt file to your Amara page. (*). The  generated captions won't be timed, but it perhaps does not matter all  that much if what you're interested in is the translated subtitles.

Very safe (at least I never had issues with it):

  • Download the automatic captions with (no need to sign up)
  • Upload the downloaded .srt caption file to your Amara page  (*) The captions will be synced, which is nice if someone else is  interested in syncing them per se.



(*) In both cases, I upload the captions to Amara as  being in one of the "Metadata" languages  (not Metadata  Audiodescription, because that's real, bt say, Metadata Geo) and I  indicate in the description that they are automatically generated, lest  others be puzzled ;)

I'm quite new to Amara but am working on TWP script translation tool/service but am interesting whether there is such a thing as an amara api which can be intergrated into a website or some other platform?

Hi Michael,

Yes, Amara has an API and embedder options to display videos on your website with captions and translations.
These links share more information on both options:

Dear friends,

Till now there is no software that converts any audio to another language because the reason is the software is not human things that's why it cannot feel the human emotion when they talk in the movie or other places, well you can convert any video to audio by youtubetomp3converters. Also, you can add the subtitle in any language.

I found this youtube tutorial that explains how to translate videos online It looks like a good fast and affordable solution. 

Thank you for your inputs, Razi Ahmad and  Sabba Keynejad

Even though the resources you mention do not translate the audio into other languages, as harryking requested, they may be useful to other people.
