In a constant effort aimed at rendering YouTube increasingly accessible to people from all over the world, the video platform development team of Google is testing a really cool and useful feature. Colleagues from Android Police, in fact, they discovered a feature capable of translating the title, Description e Captions of each YouTube video into its own native language.
Titles, captions and descriptions in your own language
Available to a handful of test users, a simple pop-up on the desktop and mobile version of YouTube asks users if they want to view these elements of the platform in their native language. Any affirmative answer proceeds to instantly translate the key elements of a video, as can be seen in the images below.
At the moment it seems that the development team has guaranteed the translation of the text fromEnglish al Portuguese, with more and more languages coming in the future. From the images you can also see that the function is responsible for translating other portions of the UI of a video such as the number of views, the number of users subscribed to the channel, the captions relating to the buttons and much more. The ultimate goal, it seems evident, is to render YouTube increasingly accessible even to the many users who do not browse the application in their mother tongue, guaranteeing them a more satisfying and inclusive user experience.
Needless to say, the beating heart of the feature revolves around Google Translate, which leads us to assume that support for many other languages will soon be added.
