As one of the largest video hosting platforms globally, YouTube is a source for useful and high-quality videos that are not always in a language that users understand.

It’s disappointing to come across a fun video or tutorial that you really need, but you can't grasp it well due to the language barrier.

YouTube offers English subtitles for all users who speak or understand English, so they may more easily understand videos that are not in English.

But what if you want to watch a video with subtitles in your native language?

Luckily, Google Chrome extensions for YouTube dual subtitles exist, so users can watch videos translated into many different languages.

In this blog, we will dive into the multiple Google Chrome subtitles extensions for translating YouTube videos.
