Translate videos


If you have more than one language translations of your website, you may want to translate a video. You can use one and the same video, but translate the title and the alternative text, but you can also use different videos for your different language translation.


To translate a video, perform the following:

  1. Open the library where the video is located and click it.
  2. In the left side of the toolbar, click the current language icon and select the language for the new translation.
  3. To use a different video for this translation, click Settings icon (Replace file for current translation) button.
  4. Select a video from a library or upload a new one.
  5. You can translate the following video properties:
    • Title and Alternative text
    • Author and Description
    • URL and URL to file
  6. When you are finished with the translation, click Publish.

Translate categories and tags

The categories and the tags that are assigned to a video are translated through their own modules. For example, if you have assigned a tag to an English video and you go to Tags page, you can translate the tag in German and it will automatically appear for the German version of the video.
