Want to include captions and subtitles in a TikTok video, one of the most downloaded mobile apps? There are several apps you can use for this. Better yet, there is a free way to add subtitles to your clip right in the app’s built-in video editor …

Steps to add captions to a TikTok video

To add text to a TikTok clip, all you need to do is click the “text” button in the editing part of your video’s post and transcribe the audio.

Webmarketing training

The video will continue to play in the background while you do this, so you can end the transcription of the audio to a different part of the video than it belongs to.

Once you have completed your transcription, tap on the text and select ‘set duration’. From there, you can choose how long and where in the video the text appears.

Overlay text on top of each other

You can overlay text on top of each other and set different text boxes for different lengths of time. There is no limit to the number of text boxes you can insert in a video, just make sure they line up when the text is read.

Use captions

To get even more engagement and optimize our social media strategy, you can use captions on other videos you create, making them more accessible to other app users so that they can also enjoy your content!
