If you want to find a team to join, the project finder is here for you! Project Finder is a vital tool for subtitlers on Viki to find projects to complete. This tool will allow you to search for different Viki shows & movies with teams looking for help from contributors like yourself.
The following steps should be used to find channels that you can contribute subtitles on. Please note that you must be signed-in to Viki to access the Project Finder.
Open the Project Finder by clicking the "Project Finder" link at the top of your contributor dashboard.
Select "I want to be Subtitler" at the top.
Select the first dropdown menu to select the language you wish to translate from.
Example: "I'd like to translate from English" would mean, I will read English subtitles and translate them into another language.
To the right of the language you just chose, use the drop-down menu after "to" and choose the language you wish to translate into.
Example: "I'd like to translate from English-to-Spanish". This search will show me channels with English subtitles that need translation into Spanish subtitles.
Click on the "Search" button.
Once you have decided upon a channel to apply for, select the “Apply” button underneath it.
Write a short introduction about yourself on the application that pops-up. Include any information that would help the team member understand your skills + passion.
Please note, writing in your preferred language is most ideal as this gives the team member an idea of your language proficiency.
Provide information about your availability. This helps the team learn when they can lean on your support.
Adjust the timezone to ensure that all team members are aware of your availability. Communication is key!
Go over your application one final time and then submit it by clicking the “Apply” button.
Congratulations!! You have successfully applied for subtitling positions for teams on Viki!
