Use humanlike voices to translate audio

It’s nearly impossible to record a script perfectly. We all stumble, falter, and re-record. So, why not let AI do the work? Kapwing offers over 50 super-realistic voices so you can turn your script into audio in seconds. Or, try our voice cloning feature and upload a sample of your own voice. (No one needs to know you didn’t spend hours in the recording studio.)

How to Translate Audio

  1. Upload audio

    Upload your audio file to Kapwing. Kapwing’s audio translator can translate multiple types of files, including MP3, WAV, AAC, M4A, and more. You can also record audio directly inside the studio, or upload a video file — the audio language translator will work on those too.

  2. Translate audio

    To translate audio to English (or more than 60 other languages), select your audio file and click “Subtitles” on the left sidebar. Choose the original language the audio was recorded in, as well as the language you’d like to translate to. Click “Auto Subtitle.” You can then make edits and even create a video by arranging the subtitles and adding images or video clips.

  3. Download and share

    When you’re done using the voice to text translator, you have several options. You can download the transcription as an SRT, VTT, or TXT file, which you can then use as a reference or upload to other platforms. If you created a video with subtitles, you can export an MP4 file to download, or share the link to your project.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

Can I translate audio directly within a video editing software?

Yes, when editing with Kapwing, you can manage all of your translating tasks automatically within our video editing software. Start by uploading your video. Then auto-generate subtitles and instantly translate the text into one of 20+ popular languages. Lastly, choose a realistic AI voice for your translated audio.

Is there any free software for translating video audio?

Kapwing is 100% free for videos up to 4 minutes long and text-to-speech voiceovers totaling up to 8 minutes per month. To use our audio translation features, you’ll need to choose from one of our low-cost plans, which unlock 300 or 900 minutes of translation per month.

How do I synchronize translated audio with the original video?

To synchronize translated audio with the original video, use dubbing software that automatically replaces your voiceover with translated audio. Upload your video into Kapwing and auto-generate subtitles. Then, translate the subtitles, choosing from 20+ languages. Next, select a voice that matches your brand. Kapwing will automatically dub your video, synching the audio to the original as closely as possible.

Can I automate the translation of multiple videos at once?

Yes, AI video editing software can work on multiple videos simultaneously. Upload each video to Kapwing and click the Subtitles tab to auto-generate subtitles. Then, select the language that you want to translate the video into. Kapwing offers translated subtitles, dubbed audio, and transcriptions in one fast workflow.

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.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
