Subtitle Creation on Viki

Our subtitles are created by fans from around the globe through a one-of-a-kind process that produces subtitles that can’t be found anywhere else on the web. Check out the subtitle creation process below!


Subtitling speed and availability is dependent on the popularity of the show, the type of content (historical drama language is very different from modern dramas!), volunteers discovering the show and recruiting team members when the video was uploaded and a variety of other factors.

We’re taking the necessary steps to support our volunteers and viewers with subtitle availability.

You can help too! Words of encouragement go a long way in motivating our global community to create the amazing high-quality subs that are unique to Viki. Cheer volunteers on through comments, timed comments, or join them and become a volunteer!

Learn more about the Subtitling Community in our FAQs and on our Community page.
