How to Change Subtitles Language on YouTube

Hello my name is Paul Priestley, welcome
to artists in school, the home of art history videos for young people and for
interested amateurs. Now one of the issues I have is that my videos are seen
by people all around the world, but I speak in English and most of those
people don’t speak English. So how can we translate what I’m saying into something
that people can understand in their own language? Well YouTube provides a very
simple tool for doing this and that is the subtitles. It can instantly translate
subtitles into any language. It is absolutely brilliant. I’ll show you how
to do it, it’s very very simple. I just make a start, this is a still from
my film on the life of Van Gogh. If you wanted to see my words translated in
subtitles in your own language, then this is what you do. First of all you need to
click the subtitles button which is down here. Once you’ve clicked the subtitles
button then it will automatically generate subtitles in English and it
will follow my words exactly. If you want to translate it, click the Settings
button here. Once you’ve clicked the Settings button this menu will have
appeared click the subtitles section here. New menu will appear, click Auto
Translate. Once you’ve clicked that you will then get a list of all the
languages that YouTube can translate into. I’m going to choose Dutch, for
example, and it will immediately translate my words into Dutch. So you can
watch the film and have my words translated from English into whatever
language you speak. Thank you for watching artists in school
I hope now that you can appreciate just how easy it is to watch a video, any
video not just mine, but any video on YouTube in your own language using
subtitles. If you’ve enjoyed the video then please check out my youtube channel,
you can see it down here and if you are really interested in supporting what I
do you might also check out my patreon channel, that would be really much
appreciated. Thank you very much for watching. Bye.
