Subtitles and Translations

Add closed captions to your videos in 100+ languages

VEED is the market leader in video transcription

69% of publicly viewed videos have the sound off

It doesn’t matter how good your video is. If it doesn’t have subtitles, chances are that it won’t reach your audience. 69% of people watching in public spaces and offices mute the audio. 25% of viewers do this even when viewing in private. Subtitles and closed captions are a must have for modern audiences.

Translate and internationalize your videos

If you’re working with a global team or marketing to different countries, subtitle translations are crucial. But professional translations can cost around $300 per hour of video per language — with a two-week turnaround time. VEED offers automated translations with manual reviews. This costs around 1/10th the price and can be completed in minutes.

Get word-perfect accuracy with VEED

VEED offers a hybrid approach to achieving word-perfect results. We use artificial intelligence to do the bulk of the work. It’s fast, cheap, and accurate (up to 98%). But to get the final 2%, VEED offers manual review tools. Users can review the text and easily edit it to get 100% accurate results.

Meet accessibility legislation

It’s increasingly a legal requirement to make digital media accessible to people with hearing impairments. In Canada, for example, public and large organizations are legally required to meet WCAG 2 Level AA standards (which specify the need for closed captions). VEED makes it easy and scalable to add captions to all your videos across all your teams: marketing, training, recruitment, internal communications, support, and more.

What’s the difference between SRT and VTT formats in subtitles, and which one should I use?


The format of your subtitles matters because it determines which media players your video will be compatible with.

However, not all social media platforms support it.
