The videos produced by Thy Kingdom Come can be used as resources by Churches, prayer groups, families, schools and more. In a few quick steps you can find extra content including subtitles, transcripts and translations.

Subtitles & Translations

Thy Kingdom Come videos are always subtitled in English. In many cases, however, subtitles are also available in translation to other languages too. This is because Thy Kingdom Come is an international campaign with participation from all around the world. These translations can be useful for bi-lingual and multi-lingual churches, communities, schools and families.

Subtitles can be available in the following languages:

  • French
  • Spanish
  • Portuguese
  • Japanese
  • Swahili
  • Korean
  • Welsh
  • Urdu
  • Arabic

How to find the subtitles

There are two ways to find translated subtitles of a video. The first is by changing the language of the website: this is most suitable to people searching for subtitles in their native language. The second is via the YouTube menu: this is most suitable to those looking for subtitles or translations in a language other than their own, or in several different languages. The first option is available for French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Swahili and Korean. Welsh, Urdo and Arabic translations are only available through the second method.

Change the website language

If you want to find if subtitled videos are available in your own language, first click the language drop down in the top right of any page on the website:

select a language

Then go to the Videos page. Any videos with subtitles in the chosen language are shown first in the videos list. When you click on a video it will automatically show the subtitles in the chosen language, if they are available.

Transcripts

If you would like a full written transcript of a video, this is often available through the YouTube menu. These can be used in worship materials, prayer cards, service sheets and resources for study groups.

You can use transcripts as a translation separate to the subtitles: for example, in a Canadian church there could be video subtitles in English for hard of hearing people and a also translation into French printed on paper (or vice versa).

How to find the transcripts

To access the transcript, first click the YouTube logo at the bottom right of the video.

Then click Open Transcript.

The transcript will then appear on the right or below the video. If you click on a sentence in the transcript it will take you to that part of the video, so the transcript is a useful navigation tool. You can also change the language of the transcript using the menu, assuming translations are available.

For example here there are 6 options to choose from.

swahili transcript

Changing the transcript language does not affect the subtitle language, so you can click on a line in Swahili and it will take you to that section of the video with, for example, English text equivalent in the subtitles. This can be useful if you wish to just show a small section of the video and provide a translation of just that section.
