The Sydney Opera House is one of the most well known landmarks in the world. With over 10.9 million people visiting it each year, it’s obviously one of Australia’s hottest tourist spots.

When searching online, the official videos for the Opera House are all in English, which is great for English speakers, but what about those who aren’t?

Using the videotranslator.ai app and creating translated videos would be a great way to reach millions of people worldwide who aren’t native English speakers. It’s quick, easy and extremely cost effective.

Read on as we show you how to translate this video on the Sydney Opera House from English to French in 8 simple steps.

Steps: How To Transcribe And Translate A Video From English To French

  1. First off, we’ve logged into our videotranslator.ai account and have selected our template. Once selected we then add a new item and name it, in this case we’ll name it SydneyOperaHouse.

  2. Next we upload our video. Once the upload is complete we select the video and tell the app what English dialect is being originally used in the video. The speakers are from Australia so we select Australian English.

  3. The app then transcribes the video and the transcription will be shown on the screen. Because people don’t always speak the way they write, the AI can sometimes miss capitalisation, commas and full stops as well as misuse certain words.

  4. Due to this we need to check the transcription ourselves and make any corrections. This in turn helps the written content make sense to the AI when it begins translating. This process is known as post-editing and is super important for quality control.
