How to get subtitles in French for your videos, TV shows, and movies

So how can you easily get videos, TV shows, and movies with French subtitles? Rev enables you to order highly accurate foreign subtitles and have them delivered to you in 24 hours or less. Here’s how it works. 

1. Go to 

To get started, go to and select the ‘Global Translated Subtitles’ service. Using this service, you can order subtitles in more than 15 languages, including Italian, Chinese (Mandarin), and, of course, French. As an added bonus, Rev includes a free English caption file for your video content with your order. To begin, click the ‘Get Subtitles’ button.

2. Upload your file

Once you’ve reached the ‘Order Global Subtitles’ page’, select ‘Upload Files’ and choose the file to which you wish to add French subtitles. If you’re interested in how to get French subtitles on your YouTube videos, you can input the URL from a public website or YouTube or Vimeo page here. 

Once you’ve chosen and uploaded your video, select the output format that you would like Rev to deliver your file in. After selecting the correct format, pick your desired subtitle language to proceed.

3. Select either burned-in or open subtitles

You can now select whether you would like your French subtitles burned-in or open. If your content is solely intended for French speakers and you wish to have your subtitles permanently shown on screen, then burned-in French subtitles would be the ideal choice. However, if you plan on sharing your content with a global audience, then you should pick open subtitles. This is because open subtitles are exported as a separate file from your original video, allowing you to add multiple subtitle languages to the same video.

4. Place your order

Once you’ve made your selection, all that’s left to do is to fill in the rest of your order details and checkout. After Rev’s team of translators have finished your French subtitling, you’ll receive an email notifying you that your subtitles are ready to be downloaded.

5. Edit your subtitles

Although Rev offers a 99% accuracy guarantee, there may still be some changes you would like to make to your French subtitles. For any adjustments, select Rev’s ‘Caption Editor’ from the ‘My Files’ page. Once here, you can easily edit your French subtitles to your needs, such as altering spellings or changing their on-screen position.

6. Download your French subtitles

Once you’ve completed your edits, your French subtitles will be ready to download. If you chose burned-in subtitles, they will be embedded within the file. If you opted instead for open subtitles, they will be available to download in a separate file. Once you’ve saved your French subtitles, you’re all finished. All that’s left to do is share your content with your new audience around the world.
