How to Subtitle

Don't worry. It's fun, easy and comes with cool perks!

First Time

This subtitling 101 video covers all the basics! You can also watch the series of subtitling tutorials on our Viki U Channel.

Find a project

Once you've created a free Viki account, simply head to the Project Finder to search for shows to segment, subtitle, or caption in your language.

What if I only know one language?

That's okay! You can still subtitle by captioning, which is writing subtitles in the video's original language. This helps hearing-impaired viewers as well as other translators.
