This article covers a web app that can automatically translate videos to multiple languages online and embed the caption to the video. To target a mass audience for your video, you should have to translate it into multiple languages. Doing this opens up the language barrier and expands the reach of your content to more people all around the world. The one way of doing that is with YouTube where YouTube generates captions for your video and users can translate it to their local language while watching the video. But there are two downsides to this method; YouTube auto-captions is not the best and users have to manually change the caption language. Well, there is a much simple approach to this where you can embed the translated captions within your videos and don’t have to depend on YouTube alone.

You can also add various other visual tweaks including video filters, trim video, video effects, draw on video, crop video, add text to video, add a progress bar to video.
The free tier of this app offers a 50 MB of upload limit and you can download the captioned video in 420p resolution. The final video also has a watermark on the video along with the caption. You can expand those limits by going with a paid plan.
