What is AI Dubbing?

AI-powered video dubbing automatically transcribes, translates, and synthesizes a new voice that replaces a video's original dialogue, matching the timing of the original speaker. Dubbing is an important part of video localization as viewers can watch and listen to video and audio content in their preferred language.

Automatic video dubbing in 30+ languages

Kapwing’s automated dubbing platform helps companies translate libraries of content without high costs, complicated vendor agreements, or painfully long turnaround times.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

Can AI be used for dubbing?

Generative AI is essential to the process of dubbing a video or audio track. Kapwing uses automatic speech recognition libraries, like Whisper developed by OpenAI, to extract the text from the video, then translates it using one of a MT vendors. To dub the video, the translated captions are transformed into a synthetic voiceover, and the timing of the video and voice are adjusted to ensure proper matching. Kapwing also uses LLMs to adjust the length of the translated text (if it is too long or short compared to the original language), localize the text into the selected dialect, clean the audio layer, and remove filler words from the transcript. Kapwing is the only platform that incorporates generative AI for transcription, translation, text-to-speech generation, and video/audio editing in one seamless workflow.

How does AI dubbing work?

AI dubbing technology transcribes the original language of a video, aligns it with the audio, translates it, and then generates a matching voiceover in the new language. Then, the application makes changes to the audio track and original video to ensure that they're timed naturally and that other background noise is preserved. Kapwing's voice dubbing platform also clones the voice of the original speaker to ensure that the new voice matches it as closely as possible. Supported by ElevenLabs AI dubbing, Kapwing has a built-in video dubber, as it is a video editing platform where you can dub a video, auto-generate subtitles, and continue editing—all on one platform.

What is video dubbing?

Dubbing in a video involves adding or substituting audio in a production to finalize the sound design of the project. Oftentimes, you will hear video dubbing in the context that a video has been translated and the speakers' audio is in a different language than its original.

Where can I dub videos online?

Use Kapwing's online video dubber to translate videos to over 20 languages, including Spanish, Arabic, French, and more. Get started on Kapwing now—no downloads or add-ons required.

What is a UN style voice over?

A "UN style" voice over is a translated narration layered over a video’s voice over in its original language. The UN style voice over is usually louder than the original audio, however the original audio is still audible at ten percent. Most commonly used for news stories, documentaries, and real-life events, a UN style voice over is used to preserve the original voice over’s meaning and context.

How can I translate the voice over in my video?

You can translate existing voice overs in a video with AI dubbing in Kapwing. This automated voice translation process involves generating subtitles translated into multiple languages, analyzing the text for semantics, then translates the audio content to make it accessible to a global audience.

Is AI dubbing safe?

AI Dubbing is safe as long as you have permission from the original speaker and that you check with a local language expert for clarity before publishing the dubbed video. All data is stored with cloud providers that have top tier physical security controls to protect all user data. For more information, visit our Security and Data Privacy page.

Are AI voice clones legal and safe?

AI voice clones, also known as synthetic voices, can be safe and legal when used properly. However, it's important to be mindful of privacy and consent.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.
