Today’s Descript release: we've added 22 new languages to automatic transcription.

Backspace. Copy and paste. Drag and drop. That’s how you edit audio and video in Descript.
Edit audio and video just like editing a doc.

Multi-language transcription

Descript creators have been asking for transcription in languages other than English for a long time — it was by far our most-requested updated.

And now it's here. Today we launched transcription support for 22 new languages.

You can now transcribe audio or video in:

Catalan
Croatian
Czech
Danish
Dutch
English
Finnish
French
German
Hungarian
Italian
Latvian
Lithuanian
Malay
Norwegian
Polish
Portuguese
Romanian
Slovak
Spanish
Swedish
Slovenian
Turkish

We’ve also launched support for Hindi, but only in the Beta app.

Our Help Center has more on how multi-language transcription works.
