Introduction

We look at how to translate video content. Translation is the communication of the meaning of a source-language text by means of an equivalent target-language text1. In brief, we will (i) upload a video, (ii) add text, (iii) translate the video text, (iv) download a translated video.

Steps

  1. We need a sample video to work with, and will use the Big Bunny video from Sample Video’s.
