How do I submit a translation for your YouTube videos?
We ask for our community's help to submit translations on our new Google Form here. It follows a similar procedure to YouTube's Community Contributed Subtitle feature before that feature was removed by YouTube in September 2020.
How do I get credited with my name as the translator? Or remain anonymous?
We greatly appreciate the volunteers from the community that have spent time translating the video transcript. On our Google Form (the link to it is at the top of this page), you will note that there is an option to remain anonymous or to be credited. If you wish to be credited, the form will ask how you would like the credit to look. We also ask if you would like us to place a credit in the video details (which you can see when you click "show more" under a video) or if you would like to place a credit line yourself in the subtitles you submit (at the beginning or the end), or BOTH.
How do I see what translations already exist for one of your videos to determine if a translation is needed?
Go to any of our videos on our YouTube channel. Once our video is playing, click the gear icon and click "subtitles" to see all languages that our community has so kindly contributed. If the language you are interested in adding is not listed, we are still in need of that translation for the video!
I now made and submitted subtitles on your form linked at the top of this post. What happens now?
Once a week, we go into the form and check to see if there are any contributed subtitles. We scan with Google translate and if they follow along the original script, we publish them on the YouTube video. This will allow anyone viewing the video to see the translated subtitles. If you selected to be credited on the Google form, we will place the credit in the way you listed it on the form. They will be permanently available unless you choose to have us remove them, which you can choose at any time.
Do you allow dubbing of your videos?
I used YouTube's old community-contributed subtitle feature prior to September 2020, and opted for YouTube to credit my name, and now I don't see my name anymore?
We brought this up to YouTube that the names they had listed with this feature stopped appearing a few months after the feature was discontinued. While only YouTube had access to those names and the feature, please contact us as we can ask YouTube on your behalf. We also can manually type in a credit in our video description if YouTube is unable to restore it.
What about translating your comics or GIFs?
Translating comics or GIFs requires permission; we have to ensure that the translated comics and GIFs will not be used for financial purposes or placed in items that are sold. You can contact us here.
