4. I have to remove them because the first version is not a completed subtitle, and the third and forth ones have wrong timing. The second one is completed, but can you tell me how to sync the timing?

Thank you.

Hi, Ly Hoang Oanh

This looks like the same request you made in Removing subtitles, where my reply seemed to work. If you mean something else, please re-reply.



1. Please remove english subtitles


3. Tibor Repček

4. I uploaded slovak subtitles as english one. It was my mistake. :)

Thanks for fix.

Dear Sir

I did not understant.

I made 2 video subtitles with Amara. Two videos that made part of my university creation degree, and, in fact, two different versions of the same documentary.

I realize, recently, that the last one is not available anymore.

Could you explain to me, please ?

Thank you very much in advance.

Yours truly,

Marco Diniz

Tibor Repček: I have deleted the "English subtitles" that were actually in Slovak: thanks for telling about the error.

Marco Diniz: Could you indicate your Amara user name and the title of the surviving video, so I can check, please?

Thank you in advance.

Dear Marco,

As you replied by email, your reply created a ticket (#103800).  Thank you for the information you gave: so far as I can see, both of your videos are present on YouTube and correctly streaming in their corresponding Amara pages.

Maybe it was a temporary glitch?



Request - Remove Video

 just to try out the subtitle function, but now need to remove the video from the website. 



I am going to forward your forum post to the Support desk so they can check if the video can be removed from Amara. 

We are able to make an exception to our usual deletion policy if the video you requested to have removed does not have any contributions from other members. 


  • In accordance with the Amara Terms of Service videos subtitled with the use of Amara are not normally removed from the site after subtitling work has been finished.
  • Check out Deleting Videos or Subtitles on Amara to help you choose which video's to add to your Amara public profile and for more details on our removal and deletion policies to ensure the work you and other's contribute to Amara is preserved for everyone's benefit.

Thank you for all your contributions to Amara!
