Removing subtitles or videos

Updated August 15th, 2018

have been translated from it, you can request its removal

1. Remove subtitles (Chinese, traditional)


3. User name: lilian_chiu

4. Reason: My friend is going to create the Chinese subtitles, I was just showing him how to do it using the Amara interface, so I entered some random words as subtitles for demo and clicked on the "publish" button (to show him how to publish). I didn't know I can't remove the subtitles by myself at the time. Can you remove the Chinese subtitles for me? I am truly sorry for the trouble. 

No trouble at all, Lilian: I have removed your subtitles. By the way, should you need to show someone else how Amara works in future, you can use the amara Sandbox page ;)

Thank you for your request, Buzbee.

I have deleted your subtitles. There has been quite a lot of tickets recently: hence the delay there. Sorry about that.



Hey, I really like the comments you make to the videos you subtitle where you explain local / slang meanings for translators!

Dear Claude Almansi;

Thank you so very much. Your kind words made my week. I am very grateful as I was feeling bummed.

That was the aim of the video comments: to try to help the translators. Thank you for seeing my intentions, and for your kindness.

Thank you,
