How to Put Subtitles in Portuguese on YouTube

But, before proceeding, there is some information you need to know. For starters, not every video on the platform has subtitles, as they are included by content creators and, in some cases, by Youtube itself.

1. In the Youtube app (Android l iOS l Web), access a video and, at the top of the screen, click on the “CC” icon to activate subtitles. To the right of the button, click the three-dot menu to adjust the language;

2. With this action, an options window will appear on your screen. Among the available settings, click on “Subtitles”;

3. Finally, select the language you prefer. In the following screenshot, the command to put subtitles in Portuguese on Youtube is “English (automatically generated) >> Portuguese”.

If you are watching Youtube videos on TV, pause the playback and find the “CC” button, just like in the app. Then just select the desired language. If the clip does not have subtitles, the icon may appear, but it will not be selectable. If not displayed, there are no subtitles available.

How to put Portuguese subtitles on Youtube on a PC

If you prefer to consume platform content on your computer, don’t worry. As mentioned at the beginning of this text, the function is also available in the web version. See, below, how to activate it.

1. Access a video from the platform and, at the bottom of the playback screen, click on the button to activate subtitles (represented by a small rectangle with lines). Then select the gear button to open the “Settings”;

2. Among the settings shown in the sequence, choose “Subtitles/CC”;

3. See available languages ​​and select “Portuguese”. If this option does not exist, tap the “Translate automatically” command. Apparently, the translation tool is still coming to the app. So don’t be surprised if you don’t identify it on your account.

By the way, it is possible to configure your Youtube to display subtitles in all videos. But the text will only appear in Portuguese if the video audio is in that language. After all, the platform still doesn’t allow you to choose a default language or program automatic translation.
