YouTube debuts video translator for 300 languages
With 70 percent of its global audience living outside of the U.S., the video hosting platform introduces a new tool to make caption translations easier for video makers. News.com reports.
Google's video hosting platform announced today that videos can now be translated into more than 300 different languages -- from Turkish to Tagalog to Tswana.
YouTube has two types of translating services. One is the automatic caption translation service that uses Google Translate and has more than 60 languages. The other service translates more uncommon languages by letting users integrate the YouTube Video Manager with the Google Translator Toolkit.
