How To Create Dutch Captions
The Dutch language is spoken by around 23 million people in the Netherlands, Belgium, Suriname, Aruba, and the Caribbean. It is also the official language of the European Union and the United Nations. For those looking to add captions in Dutch to their audio and video media, this article provides a comprehensive guide on how to do so.
What are Captions and How Are They Different from Subtitles?
Captions are a type of text that includes the spoken dialogue of an audio or video recording, as well as additional sound effects, background music, and other audio cues. Captions are intended to be read by viewers who are hard of hearing or deaf. Subtitles, on the other hand, are a type of text that translates the spoken dialogue of a video or audio recording into a different language.
Benefits of Transcribing and Creating Captions in Dutch
Adding captions to videos and audio recordings in Dutch can provide a number of benefits. Firstly, it will allow people who are hard of hearing or deaf to access content that was previously inaccessible to them. It also allows Dutch speakers to access content in their native language, which can be beneficial for learning, entertainment, and business purposes. Furthermore, adding captions to audio and video recordings can help to improve search engine optimization and increase the reach of your content.
Tools for Transcribing and Creating Dutch Captions
There are a number of tools available for transcribing and creating Dutch captions. Speak AI is one such tool. Speak AI is a cloud-based automated transcription and captioning platform with over 50,000 users. It offers a number of features, such as automated transcription and captioning in over 200 languages, including Dutch.

Speak is compatible with YouTube videos. All you have to do is copy the URL of the YouTube video (for example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKfcLcHeivc).
