Are you in need of Dutch subtitles for your English videos, TV shows, and/or movies?  While you may have some trouble finding them through U.S. streaming services and video platforms (like Amazon Prime), Rev can help! We have a team of over 1000 vetted translators that work to deliver the subtitles you need in less than 24 hours. How does it work? Here’s all you need to know. 

How can you order Dutch subtitles with Rev?

Ordering Dutch subtitles with Rev is easy. You simply visit our website, upload your file(s), select the language for your subtitles (Dutch), complete your order, and get your file in less than 24 hours. We translate video content from English to over 15 different languages. As a result, more viewers can enjoy your video content. 

Here’s a closer look at how it works.

1.  Visit Rev.com

Step one is to visit the page on our website for foreign subtitles.

2. Upload an English video

Next, click “Get Started” and upload an English video file (or multiple). There are several ways you can upload your video. 

  • YouTube or Vimeo: If you have a video published on your YouTube or Vimeo account, you can pull it directly from your account.  You’ll just click the button for “YouTube” or “Vimeo” and then will log into your account and select the video.
  • Public web address: If you want subtitles for a video that is published at a public web address, you can copy the URL, click “Paste a URL,” and paste it in the form field. 
  • Computer file: If the video file is saved on your computer, click “Upload.” Then, you can drag and drop it, copy and paste it, or browse through your files to find it. 

3. Order Dutch subtitles

After you upload your video, we’ll figure out how long it is and will display the length at the top of the order page. 

Then, you’ll select the language you want the video translated into for the subtitles. In this case, you would pick “Dutch.” You’ll find the cost for the translation into Dutch is $5 per minute of English video. 

With the language selected, you’ll be able to see the total cost for your subtitles. In this example, a five-minute video is $27.50. 

4. Select the subtitle format type (closed vs open)

Before finalizing your order, you’ll need to decide if you want closed or burned-in subtitles. 

Closed subtitles are delivered in the file format of your choice which you add to your video

Open subtitles are permanently burned-in in your video file for an extra quarter per video minute. If you’re going to post your video on an outlet or player that doesn’t support timed text, burned-in subtitles can be very helpful. Additionally, if your video is specifically for a Dutch audience that will always need subtitles, the burned-in option ensures they are always there (no opt-in required). 

If you go for closed subtitles, you’ll need to select your file format from the list. 

Then, place your order!

5. Receive your Dutch subtitles within 24 hours!

After submitting your order, we’ll reach out to our team of translators to find the right fit for your video. Within 24 hours, you’ll receive your Dutch subtitles for review. 

You can look forward to a high-quality result as we guarantee 99% accuracy on clearly audible videos or you get your money back. Further, you can view your subtitles in our user-friendly editor and make any small changes you’d like. Then, wah-lah, your Dutch subtitles will be ready for publishing!
