Arabic transcription in place of English subtitles!

Hi there,
I made a mistake by putting the Arabic transcription for an Arabic video under "English subtitles". Is there any way that I correct this mistake without having to go through all the hassle of the three steps all over again? Help!

    Here is the link to the video I'm talking about
    As you can see, under subtitles, the Arabic is 0%, while the English is 100%, which is not true actually, coz what the video has is the Arabic transcription of the video, not the English translation.

    Hi Nouran,

    I have downloaded your transcript and re-uploaded it back to the site as Arabic. It can now be found at

    Could you please take a look at this page to check that nothing got broken during the download/upload cycle and that the correct order of words is still in place?

    When I have your confirmation that the Arabic page is OK, I will go ahead and delete the "English" page for this video.

    Looking forward to hearing from you. Best regards,

    Hi Margarita,

    Can't thank you enough really!!! This is super, but I would really appreciate it if you leave what's written under the title "English subtitles" as it is, coz I have to translate it into English anyways, and editing the Arabic text will make it easier for me. Thanks again!!!

    Hi Nouran,

    The "English" track is still there for you to edit, but if you decide to take advantage of automated Bing translation and wish to have the "English" deleted, please let me know.

    Happy subtitling!
