The team’s settings determine who can add videos to your team.

Where can I add videos to my team?
Add by URLs on the Videos tab
Automatically from video hosting sites on Settings > Integrations
Using RSS video feeds on Settings > Feeds
Add videos on the Team Management page
Go to your Videos page > click the Add videos link:
How many videos can I add?
You can add multiple videos from Amara and other sites.
Click the Add multiple video URLs tab in the dialog box and enter one URL per line.
Troubleshoot adding videos to your team
Videos must be embeddable
Amara.org does not host video or audio records
We only store subtitles and some related data
Amara plays videos from their source location
Whitelist www.amara.org for embedding on video source site
Video hosting site integrations
To add a video feed from its hosting site, your Amara Team must be authorized to import videos.
Go to Settings > Integrations to set up automatic video import.
When linking your YouTube channel to your team, you can choose to import videos, subtitles, and auto-captions automatically. If all of the videos on your channel are in the same language, you can set your channel language to automatically set video language when you import. You can also choose to export subtitles to YouTube when they are completed on Amara.
Add members to your Amara Enterprise team
You can choose how new members join your team in the main Settings page. Invite members or accept applications to start building your team of subtitle contributors.
View your current members on the Members tab in your team.
Filter, sort, and search for members in your team in the Members tab.
Click on a member to view their profile which can show you their activity and languages.
Click the green Invite members button to invite members or review applications.
Create subtitle requests and assignments
Go to Settings > Workflows to create requests automatically:
Or you can create subtitle requests manually in your team Videos page. You can create requests for several videos at a time in multiple subtitle languages.
Learn more about creating requests manually or automatically.
In the Create New Requests dialog box:
Select the video you want subtitles for
Select subtitle languages for the selected videos
Choose the work teams that will complete the subtitle requests
(Optional) If you are an admin of multiple teams, you can select Evaluation teams to perform quality assurance
Quality assurance assignments
To boost subtitle quality, you can add review or approval steps to your workflow.
Go to the Settings > Workflows page.
If you add review assignments to your workflow, there will be a subtitling assignment and a review assignment ready for your members to complete for each language that you request.
After one contributor completes their subtitles, another can review the subtitles to verify accuracy or fix errors.
Team member roles allow managers and admins control their workflow and access to assignments.
Go to Settings > Permissions page to view different roles and change their permissions to fit your ideal workflow.
Here are just a couple of useful scenarios where member roles can help your team achieve success:
A Language Manager has the responsibility to complete review assignments in their language
Limited Contributor is a great role for beginners because in that role members cannot take review or approval assignments
Change Plan or Order Subtitles
To update your payment method, add seats, or add languages for your Amara Enterprise team, click Subtitle Orders at the top of the page.
You can also order subtitles from Amara's professional subtitling service, Amara On Demand, from this page. Amara On Demand's linguists work in their native language to transcribe, translate, and review high-quality subtitles for local audiences to enjoy. Select the videos that you want to order subtitles for, then specify the languages and additional details, review your order, and submit your subtitle order.
Currently, Enterprise teams can only order English, Spanish, Portuguese-Brazilian, Arabic, Russian, French, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional). To request subtitles from Amara On Demand in other languages, fill out this form on Amara.
