Create and export subtitles from Amara to your Vimeo account:
Connect Vimeo account to an Amara account
Connect Vimeo account to a team (if you are an administrator)
Automatically import subtitles from Vimeo to Amara
Confirm subtitle export from Amara to Vimeo
Note: This process is similar to the current YouTube integration with Amara.
Connect Vimeo to your Amara User Account
To enable Amara users to create subtitles for videos on your Vimeo account, connect your Vimeo account in your user account tab:
Click your username in the top right corner
Select Account from dropdown menu
Click Integrations tab
Click Vimeo tab
Click the Connect to Vimeo button
Log in and choose a Vimeo account to connect
Note: At this time, only one Vimeo account can be connected per Amara user.
After your Vimeo account is connected you can add videos from your Vimeo account and Amara will import video information (title, thumbnail, description).
We export subtitles for videos on your Vimeo account whenever they are completed and published on Amara.
Changes made to subtitles on Vimeo will not update on Amara. Use Amara to edit subtitles.
If you would like to manually add a video from your Vimeo account, copy and paste the URL in the Amara Public Workspace page. Any videos added this way will show on the Videos tab of your account.
Note: To export subtitles to Vimeo videos, you must connect a Vimeo account to your Amara account.
Submit a support ticket with your Amara username and video URL if you have trouble syncing your subtitles to your Vimeo account.
