SchoolTube now supports ethnic captioning in the languages shown below. Our process is a combination of machine and human translation, where a human agent reviews each caption file to ensure its accuracy.*
Each language has an associated translation cost which is applied to the total length of the video, rounded up to the fullest minute.
There is a minimum $25 fee associated with each caption translation job. Multiple videos can be bundled under a single job. Payment is required in advance prior to captioning.
Once the payment is made and the order is processed, SchoolTube staff will add the ethnic captions to the requested videos. You sit back, we do the work!
