There are many ways to add subtitles on Filmora. But depending on your needs and skills, there are solutions that are more suitable than others. You can either:

  • Create the subtitles manually, using the text editor. You can then customize the appearance and positioning of your subtitles. However, it is rather complicated to transcribe a rather long video by this method. That's why this is the way to go only if you have a small project. Here is how to do it.
  • Use an automatic subtitle generator. This solution will automatically create your subtitles. You will only have to optimize the result and import the SRT file on the platform. This is the solution if you want to save time for medium-sized projects!
  • Asking for professional captioners. This is the quality choice if you are working on a large project! You are sure to get a reliable and trustworthy service.
