Guide on How to Dub a YouTube Video

For YouTubers looking to expand their global reach and connect with audiences in their native languages, dubbing content is a strategic move. However, the dubbing process might seem daunting at first. In this guide we will walk you through the steps a YouTuber can take to get their content dubbed. 

Selecting a Provider (3 Options)

1. Hire Voice Actor(s)

Find professional voice actors in the language you are wanting to dub into and provide them with a detailed description of the project/ videos you’d like to dub. It is important to ensure that they are able to identify cultural nuances in the language you have specified. This process is time-consuming especially if your videos have multiple speakers as you will need to individually find the right voice-actor for each role. After this, you will need to mix all the separate audios together into one audio wav. file. If this seems like a lot of work for you it's best to go with Options 2 and 3. 

2. Use an AI Tool

To dub your YouTube videos using AI there are tons of cheap options out there. However since these are all in development beware of AI’s inability to capture the correct cultural nuances and emotion which may hinder your channel’s performance. 

3. Find a Dubbing Studio (Recommended)

Finding a dubbing studio that can professionally translate your content offers several key benefits:

Step 1: Getting in Contact

If you're unsure which languages will best serve your content, don't worry. At BeMultilingual, our team of experts can provide insights and recommendations based on your content. For a deeper dive into language selection, we invite you to read our article on "What Languages to Dub Into, Popular Languages on YouTube, CPM of Different Languages, and Viewing Demographics."

Step 2: Discussing Your Dubbing Preferences

Once we've established contact, we'll discuss how you envision the dubbing process for your YouTube content. This includes whether you have access to YouTube's multi-language audio feature or if you're considering creating a new dubbed channel. While the multi-language audio feature offers a streamlined way to offer content in various languages, it's not widely available to all creators yet. If you're not sure if you have access to the feature check out our guide “How to Check If You Have YouTube's Multi-Language Audio Feature”. 

For creators without access to this feature, BeMultilingual provides an alternative solution by helping you launch dubbed channels. This approach allows you to grow a new community and has unique benefits such as future sponsorships from our portfolio of sponsors. A testament to this strategy's effectiveness is one of our clients, Fidias, whose original English channel and Spanish dubbed channel variation have seen remarkable growth, with the latter receiving millions of additional views weekly.

Step 3: Pricing and Project Initiation

After determining the best dubbing strategy for your channel, we'll discuss pricing. Since each project is unique, influenced by factors such as the number of videos, target languages, and number of voice actors required, we provide a special quote tailored to your specific needs. This transparent and personalized approach ensures that you receive the best value and results for your investment.

Step 4: Commencing the Dubbing Process

With the details ironed out and the agreement in place, our team of human translators, voice actors, and editors will begin the process of transforming your content.
