Automated Multi-Language Subtitles

What is it?

When enabled, the subtitles appear as an overlay on the webcast video.

When the webcast or recording has ended, the generated Automated Subtitles will be available to edit per language before placing the webcast on demand.

What is it?

When to use it?
Available for Live or Simulive Studio webcasts* and will automatically apply to the On Demand of those webcasts. Also available on mobile devices.

Webcast Localization

What is it?
Webcast Localization is the process of configuring a webcast to support multiple languages where a user logging into a localized webcast will experience it in their selected language. 

When to use it?
Available in Live, Simulive, or On-Demand Studio webcasts.

Supported Configuration

  • Some areas require Supplied Text, provided by the customer, and other areas are controlled by System Text which is auto-translated and not editable.
  • Lobby Experience does not support localization, but a user's language from registration will still carry through and apply to localization settings within the webcast.
  • Studio Accessible Layouts do not support languages other than English. Additional languages are targeted for a future release.
  • Localization is not available for the registration page, login pages, or emails, because the user must be logged in in order to know their language selection. Note, if different language registration pages are required, this can be supported with separate pages/links per language, not via localization, but still pointing to the single webcast.
