dotSUB – Any Video Any Language

Hey, there! How are you guys?

Here I just want to share something interesting(maybe useful) with you. Well, in these days, I found a site that is pretty nice and useful for someone who wants to learn, to understand, or to take deeper into the spoken English, someone like me. It’s dotSUB!

For me, I’d like to learn English because it’s interesting and like a window to another world – an awesome world(maybe), well, my written and reading english is not bad because I read and write something in English frequently, but as you knew or even came across, the spoken English is pretty different from that. It’s harder. My spoken English is really bad, bad enough, I mean. You know, 6 months ago, when I was at a Cafe and my computer can’t connect to the internet, I just stood there anxiously and can’t say anything in English when I looked for help from a foreigner – who was a Xiamen University student, I guessed. I was hesitant even if my written English is not bad :(

Well, just get back to dotSUB. So what’s dotSUB?

Just take a look at what dotSub says about itself

Welcome to dotSUB. See thousands of videos translated everyday here. To translate a video, Click Here to join and enter the world of Any Video Any Language.

dotSUB is a browser based tool enabling subtitling of videos on the web into and from any language. There is nothing to buy and nothing to download. Recognizing the potential of global communication powered by the Internet, the founders of dotSUB created a web-based tool that enables video to be accessed in an open, collaborative, “wiki” type environment. The dotSUB tool gives anyone the ability to translate video content into multiple languages via subtitles rendered over the bottom of the video….

Yeah, really, dotSUB has subtitles for the videos – most of the videos there! That’s the point. That’s what I want and looking for. I usually go to youtube to look around and there’re so many interesting and wonderful video there, but most of them don’t have the subtitles or something like that. For who is not good in English as the mother tongue, it’s pretty hard to follow up and understand, right? So that’s why someone like me needs a subtile on :)

Below are some videos I really like

some of them don’t have Transcriptions
