What is a Moderator and what do they do?


Each show or movie has its own landing page and community called a Channel. Moderators of a Channel are each appointed for a specific language and are responsible for taking care of subtitling in their language by recruiting and managing subtitlers, editing, and overseeing the quality of subtitles in their language. Moderators also help and support the Channel Manager(s).

Moderators (and Channel Managers) can do the following:

  • Adding a translation of the Channel Description and Channel Title in their language*
  • Editing the Community Wall/Cover Page design in their language
  • Locking/unlocking subtitles in each language
  • Moderating Timed Comments

Viki provides the Channel Description, Channel Title, and Episode Titles in English and translations in the following languages: Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese. All other languages can be edited by Channel Moderators.
