Help us translate our videos!

We usually add subtitles to our instructional videos and reviews, in English. This helps you get a basic translation in your own language by clicking the Settings icon on our videos (bottom right) then Subtitles/CC and selecting your language, if this has already been added.

Or click on English (United Kingdom) if you’d like to learn English, a free service provided by Flybubble 😉

Even if we have not yet provided subtitles, YouTube (Google) automatically generates ones that are pretty good (90%-95% correct) so you can already get a rough translation of everything on the Flybubble Channel.
