YouTube’s latest experimenting is translating video titles in your local language

YouTube‘s search works well enough in English, but what if you want to search for English-language videos in your native tongue?

Currently, if you search for terms in your local language, you’ll get results of videos made in that language. But that might soon change. According to a report from Android Police, the video streaming giant is experimenting with a feature that you search across videos in all languages, using queries in your native language.

The feature automatically translates the video title and description on the search page — both on the web interface and the mobile app. This means that you could get video suggestions from all around the world and read what they’re about in your local language. This is great for someone who’s comfortable with listening to videos in a different language but prefers the text on the site in their own tongue.
