Share video in the foreign language of your choice

Once you’ve selected the languages you want your video translated into, you can toggle to the primary display language of your choosing. In other words, the same video can display in English in one channel, Spanish in another, Dutch in a third, etc.

Boost SEO using foreign language subtitles

The video wrapper embeds the video’s transcript in your website’s HTML code, allowing search engines to crawl, rank, and index the video content. This brings a significant boost to your overall SEO. For example, if a video covers the various methods of dog walking, a landing page alone can only mention dog walking so many times within reason. But a video transcript can include the phrase tenfold. Whichever language the video is uploaded to in initially will be the language of the embedded text. So, a Spanish language video will help boost SEO rankings on Spanish search engines.

On the user-experience side of things, the video wrapper makes it easy to switch between foreign languages at the user’s discretion. Perhaps the user is meeting with an international client of a different nationality and needs to show a product demo in their client’s language. Done. By using the video wrapper, it is no longer required to generate videos in each language to separately embed them on a given landing page. Instead, you can create one video, identify all the various languages desired, and include them all in one single video viewing experience.
