Hello my name is Paul Priestley, welcome to artists in school, the home of art history videos for young people and for interested amateurs. Now one of the issues I have is that my videos are seen by people all around the world, but I speak in English and most of those people don't speak English. So how can we translate what I'm saying into something that people can understand in their own language? Well YouTube provides a very simple tool for doing this and that is the subtitles. It can instantly translate subtitles into any language. It is absolutely brilliant. I'll show you how to do it, it's very very simple. I just make a start, this is a still from my film on the life of Van Gogh. If you wanted to see my words translated in subtitles in your own language, then this is what you do. First of all you need to click the subtitles button which is down here. Once you've clicked the subtitles button then it will automatically generate subtitles in English and it will follow my words exactly. If you want to translate it, click the Settings button here.
