Multilingual live captions through automatic translation
Add closed captions to your live stream in any number of languages via text-to-text translation
Our live captioning platform allows for the automatic conversion of a single closed caption language into any number of languages. This way, you can easily make your live stream accessible to global audiences without high costs. The initial captions can be the result of human captioning or automatic speech-to-text conversion.
Best value for your money
If your initial closed captions are of high quality, you can use automatic translation to add accurate closed captions in an unlimited number of languages at a relatively low cost. This approach is a lot cheaper than using interpreters or live captioners for each language, since you save a significant labour cost.
By hiring professional captioners for the initial caption language, you ensure that the source of the automatic translation is accurate. Because Clevercast generates the additional caption languages through text-to-text translation, their accuracy will also be sufficiently high.
Need captioners? No problem. Our partnership with top language service providers allows us to find the best captioners for your event.
Multilingual live player
Viewers, anywhere in the world, can watch the live stream and select their preferred caption language in our video player. Our customizable HTML5 player can be easily embedded into any device and platform. Just copy the embed code from Clevercast.
Clevercast adds the captions to the live stream in an intelligent manner. This allows our player to show (partial) sentences, rather than separate words. This makes the captions easier to read and understand.
Alternatively, you can choose to display the rolling text in a separate widget. This widget also allows your viewers to change their preferred language.
Cloud recording and Video on-Demand
Clevercast makes a cloud recording of the multilingual live stream, which can be downloaded. All caption languages can be downloaded as WebVTT files. This allows you to upload them to YouTube or social media channels for on-demand viewing.
You can also convert the cloud recording of your live stream to Video on-Demand (VoD). Our VoD player with all closed captions can be added to your site or platform by copying the embed code from the platform.
