We look at how to add languages for transcription, translation and transliteration.

That is, assume we have a video in English. We now need to translate into French and German. We need to add French and add German into our account, before the transcription or translation will work.

In brief, we assume that no additional languages were selected during the sign up process, and now we are looking to add additional languages to our account.

Steps

  1. It is possible to sign up for upto three (3) languages during the sign up process. Additional languages can be added using the process in this visual guide. The below image shows this capability.

  2. However, assuming we did NOT add French and German during sign up, we can also add languages in other ways. That is, we are assuming we did NOT add French or German in the sign up step, and we are now going to add French and German.

  3. Login and your account should look like below. We will continue with the John Smith named user, showing the right navigation menu.

  4. Click into Finance. Explicitly, we want more languages, so we need to increase quantity from 1 -> 3. Confirm, and submit. NOTE: In this example, your subscription will increase from (USD) $10/month -> $30/month.

  5. Switch into the Language Settings, and add French and German. Going forward, both Templates and Items will have access to French and German.

  6. Congratualtions, you now have access to French and German, in addition to English (your primary language).

Addendum 1: Add French, but not German, to a Template

  1. Given you now have access to French and German, how do we use this functionality? Each template, and its corresponding items, has a list of languages which can be used. As an example, we can see the below languages in our original template myTemplate, as shown below. Explicitly we are missing French and German.

  2. Now, add French only and exit. If necessary, also remember to save.

  3. Adding a new item, thisItemCanBeTranslatedToFrench, and looking at its Language Properties, shows that content can now be translated to French.

  4. Please note, Language Settings is showing that this item has a Primary Language: English and Secondary Language: French. That is, it expects English content to be uploaded, and if translation is required, this item can be translated to French.
