Created version with subtitles, got URL, now what?

I've managed to transcribe and create the new version of my video with the subtitles. Is the next step to take the embedded code and save it to my own website/blog/newsletter/etc? Is there a way to resubmit this new video to YouTube so the version is available on their platform? Or, is this simply a way to create a subtitle-able version for other use?

You mention that this not only offers a version for people with hearing disabilities but that it also helps with SEO. Can you explain how it helps with SEO? Do I need to submit the new embed code to YouTube or elsewhere to boost SEO? Thanks for your explanation.

    Thank you for using Universal Subtitles.

    The next step will be to embed your subtitled video(s) into an external Web page of your choice. You can find links to sample pages with embedded videos on Home page of out site, under "The largest, most powerful captioning and translation platform in the world" header.

    To embed a video to a third-party page, copy the embed code from the page with your subtitles (it is located in the top right corner of the page, under "Embed this video in your site" header) and paste it into your page where you would normally embed the video object. More information on the use of embed scripts for different video formats is available at

    Please note that for security reasons, some host providers do not permit inserting third-party JavaScript code into their pages; this is a known issue for WordPress and a number of other blog hosts. In this case, you can insert a captioned YouTube video instead.

    To transfer your subtitles from Universal Subtitles to, download your subtitles to your computer as a file in SRT format and upload this file to YouTube as described in

    Regarding your question about SEO, our subtitles are open to full-text search by Google and other search engines, so a subtitled video is likely to be found by search more often than the one that is not subtitled.

    If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask, we'll be happy to help.

    You are very welcome, please do ask if you ever have any more questions!

    By the way, please be advised that we had a software update this morning with a number of changes in the UI, so the embed code has now moved to "Get Embed Code" link, which opens a pop-up window with the script to copy and paste.

    Best regards,
