One of our priorities at WaterBear is to make sure our content is accessible to all. Hence we are working hard behind the scenes to offer subtitle tracks for all films in different languages.

I want to help add subtitles in more languages to make WaterBear more accessible.

Thank you for wanting to help make WaterBear more accessible! We’ve set up a system where you can assist with translating the subtitles for all our films. If this is something you can help with, please fill in this form and we’ll get back to you with the next steps. Most of our subtitles are by our community volunteers. If you see any mistakes in our subtitling, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
