YouTube introduces multi-language audio feature for creators

YouTube has launched a new feature that allows creators to dub their videos in multiple languages, making it easier for viewers around the world to access content.

The feature, called "YouTube Video Translation," allows creators to upload a translated script or create a new one, and then select which languages they want their video to be available in. Viewers will be able to switch between the available languages in the video player settings.

The feature has been tested by some creators, including MrBeast, who has dubbed some of his videos in 11 languages. YouTube will now expand the feature's availability to thousands of creators. The feature streamlines the workflow for creators and helps viewers find content in one central location. YouTube reported that viewers watched over 2 million hours of dubbed video per day in January and that creators found 15% of watch time on videos offering multiple language dubs came from non-native language speakers.

YouTube hopes that this new feature will make it easier for creators to reach a wider audience and for viewers to enjoy content in their preferred language.
