How to get started in the Viki community!

Welcome! We’re very excited that you’ve decided to join our Contributor community. Here’s a bit about the community, and all the fun things you can do as a member.

Contributor Channel teams fully organize every aspect of bringing subtitles to fans around the world. They organize the Channel, design it, segment and subtitle videos into multiple languages and much more! It’s not easy, but we do it for the love of our favorite entertainment.


Subtitles on Viki are created by a community of fans just like you. 

You can learn how to subtitle videos on Viki here, and learn how to find teams that need your help here. Remember that it's polite to first contact the Channel Manager or Moderator of a video before you start working on it. Also, check out the community-created Ninja Segging & Subbing Academy to learn from veteran subtitlers!

Love watching videos on Viki? Show your support and appreciation by thanking the community for their amazing efforts. Please don’t ask them when subtitles will be finished, or pressure them to subtitle faster -- remember, they’re all Contributors! 


Segments, much like subtitles, are also created by Viki community members!

In order to make subtitles possible, a video must be "cut" into timed segments. It’s great fun so give it a try! If you want to become an expert segmenter or learn from the best, we recommend that you view the NSSA Segmenting Guide or join one of our community-created programs like Ninja Segging & Subbing Academy. Once you have learned the required segmenting skills, please contact the Channel Manager or Moderator of a channel team you want to segment in order to be added as an official segmenter.

We hope you love being a part of Viki as much as we love having you here!
