Multilingual video

Hi! Will be very grateful if someone can help me to figure out if there is a way to make the multilingual video in Camtasia (or if no, with another soft). What I'm looking for is the way to show one video with a choice of different languages. 
And in addition - is it possible to watch the video with that feature online?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Katerina,
Thank you for your question.

At this time, it is not possible to create one Camtasia project and then be able to have the viewer choose their language experience.

I am not sure if you are needing just the caption options to be available, OR, if you would like to be able to switch out your video recordings for localized UI, but neither of these are possible inside Camtasia at this time.

What you can do is create your video in the target language, then add multiple caption files via YouTube, Wistia, etc.
Here is a tutorial video on our site that contains multiple caption files:

If you choose the CC button, you see which languages are available for viewing:


The ability to build in multiple caption files is something we understand as a need for many people and we are looking into this on our end.

However, if and when this might become a feature, I don't know.

Thanks again for your post.

Thank you for the quick answer! Any idea which soft for now can create such video? For example, the Online movie repository uses this feature...
