Simon Says' advanced A.I. in a few minutes. We support dubbing in dozens of languages!

What is Dubbing?
Dubbing is where you take a video spoken in one language and you have it voiced, or dubbed, into a different language, typically for audiences and geographies where they speak a foreign language.

How does it work?
Dubbing entails transcribing your audio/video file; translating it to the desired language(s); and then voicing or dubbing it into those desired languages.

This guide will help you to swiftly dub your content into foreign languages so it is accessible to much larger audiences and to many more countries around the world.
Here's how to dub your video in 5 steps:
  1. Import your audio and video via the web. You can also import from your computer and video editing application: macOS app, Adobe Premiere Pro extension, Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve extension, or Final Cut Pro X extension.

    You can import multiple files at the same time.
