Amara simplifies the long process of translating and subtitling videos. Amara is the first software I've used that allows a translator to translate, transcript, time, and publish subtitled videos all at once. It provides the perfect combination of tools to efficiently translate and subtitle videos. Its easy to use interface guides the translator through the translating and subtitling process.
