What’s New in Screencastify: Captions in World Languages and More!

Kay-Anne Reed
Sr. Product Marketing Manager

We're thrilled to introduce exciting new features added to Screencastify this month, aimed at making your video creation and management experience even more seamless and efficient. Let's dive into what's new:

Remove language barriers with Captions in 50+ world languages

Easily make your videos accessible to a wider audience with our new Captions in World Languages feature, now available in beta to our Starter and Pro users! Whether you're an educator creating videos for ESL students and language learners or a content creator with a diverse audience, you can now provide your viewers with the ability to translate your captions from English into into over 50 world languages and from those languages into English.

Our caption translation is the first AI offering of many in development at Screencastify. Powered by automatic AI translation, Captions in World Languages allows you to record a single video that viewers can translate into the language of their choice with just a few clicks. Once you add captions to your video and share your Screencastify watch page link, viewers can select their preferred language for captions with just a few clicks and your words will be auto-translated into the language of their choice.

Captions auto-translation helps facilitate comprehension, accessibility, and inclusivity — and helps you communicate more effectively with your everyone in your learning community. It's an easy way to boost comprehension and support students in acquiring skills in a second language.
