Hi Guys!

Being headquartered in Cinisello Balsamo, Italy (Milan), we at CIMsystem tend to produce content in both Italian and English and are also starting to produce content in other languages like Chinese, Portugese, Spanish and many more. For this reason, not all content may be available in your native language and we understand language can sometimes be a barrier to learning.

We've found that YouTube has a great feature that will automatically generate subtitles, even for videos that don't publish with a set script. This can be handy because this same feature can also automatically translate the video's subtitles into your native language!

Here's how to do it:

When the video starts playing, you'll notice the following menu in the bottom right-hand corner of your video. Click on the settings (gear) icon and make sure that Subtitles are turned on by selecting it:

If you click on Auto-translate, you'll see additional languages you can choose from:

Now when you select the Settings (Gear) icon, you should see the translation into the language of your preference:

While the translation / voice recognition can be hit or miss at times - this is a great way to break through that communication barrier with the (free) tools available to us!
