Video translations

To see translated subtitles for a video, turn subtitles on and choose the language you want to see subtitles in.

You can see what languages are available for a course by checking the course's description page. If a language is listed, that means at least 80% of the course's video subtitles have been translated. When you search for courses, you can filter your search to find courses that have translations in certain languages.

Not all videos have subtitles in all languages. Right now, Coursera doesn't support right-to-left languages.

Subtitle translations are done by Coursera's Global Translator Community. Although our GTC members work hard to create high quality translations, Coursera doesn't guarantee that all translations will be complete and accurate.

Help translate Coursera videos

You can help translate Coursera videos by joining the GTC.

We use a third-party platform called Transifex to organize translation projects. Before you can start translating Coursera materials, you'll need to create a Transifex account.

When you complete the GTC signup process on Coursera, make sure you:

  • Enter your Transifex username correctly.
  • Provide the email address associated with your Coursera account (not another email address you use).
