Tech startup Maestra just released an online software that enables content creators to automatically voiceover and subtitle their videos to foreign languages in just minutes, allowing content creators to reach the billions of viewers around the world who don’t understand English.
The software works by automatically transcribing videos to subtitles using machine learning, then translates and subtitles the text automatically to 50+ languages.
Additionally, the software can automatically voice-over the foreign language subtitles onto the original video in just minutes, by using computer-generated voices.
“Over 50% of internet users don’t speak English, which is why subtitling and voicing over videos automatically can have a profound impact for viewers across the world,” said co-founder Berkay Atatop.
Subtitles and captions can help with more than just foreign languages. A recent study has shown that 80% of viewers are more likely to view videos to completion when subtitles and captions are available. Videos with captions posted onto Facebook have a greater organic reach by 135%.
To subtitle and voice over videos automatically with Maestra, all one has to do is upload their videos to Maestra’s platform, and press “Submit.” The videos are automatically subtitled and voiced over to English in just minutes. To add additional languages, users can click on the “add languages” button to instantly add subtitles and voiceover videos in foreign languages.
How to use Maestrasuite
1) First sign up for Maestra and create an account. After you’ve set up, click the “^” Button to navigate to Captions, if you’re not already there.
2) Click “+ New Caption” to begin the process of creating a new caption, then click anywhere in the grey box to select your file. Then click “Submit.” Machine learning and speech recognition software will now automatically caption the video!
3) Click on your file to view your caption.
4) To add subtitles in new languages, click the “+” button on the top right, next to “English”, then select almost any language available.
Once you’re satisfied with your captions and subtitles, click “Settings/Export” to export your captions in .srt or .vtt format, or embed the video directly onto your website so you can reach a global audience.
