Biteable is marketers’ favorite video editor. With its extensive animated and visual features and numerous templates, it’s easy to create a promotional video in no time.
Yet, even though the platform provides a text editor for your videos, it lacks a built-in subtitle feature. And we know how important subtitles are from a marketing point of view.
That’s why, here’s how to generate subtitles on Biteable and save time on the process. You’ll see, nothing could be simpler.
Why add subtitles on Biteable?
Biteable is popular among professionals for its large stock of templates and video clips. With these resources, they have little trouble creating communications, ads or content videos for a large audience.
The platform also provides an intuitive tool to add animated texts, and thus illustrate videos in an interactive way. But this feature doesn’t really help to create subtitles and increase the accessibility of your medium-length videos.
However, there are many benefits to expect from subtitles:
- Subtitles improve the viewing and engagement rate of your videos, with a greater visual impact on social media (especially for playback without sound).
- You share your video to a diversity of languages and nationalities around the world.
- Your users are more likely to interact with your discussions, reacting on what you are saying.
- You allow people who are deaf or hard of hearing to understand your content.
- You improve the referencing of your pages, especially with the transcription of your content.
