We look at how to transcribe video content. From Wikipedia, ‘Transcription in the linguistic sense is the systematic representation of language in written form. The source can either be utterances (speech or sign language) or pre-existing text in another writing system.’

In brief, we will (i) upload our content, (ii) trigger transcription, and (iii) download a video with our embedded transcript. To transcribe your existing video content, please follow the below steps.

Steps

  1. Please direct your browser to videotranslator.ai, and then click on the Login button. On successfully logging into the application, you should see an interface similar to the below. Select myTemplate, and using the highlighted button, add a new item.
