How can you add Arabic subtitles to Netflix?

You are lucky: Netflix offers it

If you are lucky, Netflix offers Arabic subs in your country. You can check if there is Arabic audio/subtitles available by clicking on this link:  http://www.netflix.com/browse/audio/AR/

There is a work-around: Use a google chrome extension

This always works not matter where you live. It is completely free and legal.

You need to use Chrome as a browser and follow these steps:

Step 1: Download the extension Super Netflix from the Chrome Webstore

Step 2: Go to Netflix

Now you should see some extra symbols on the right side of your screen.

Step 3: You need to download the files for the subtitles

They are available at www.subflicks.com

For example – search for: arabic stranger things. Hint: Always add arabic to your search string in order to find it quickly.

–> Download the file for the episode you want to watch.

Step 4: Got to Netflix and choose the TV series and episode you want to watch

Step 5: Now click on the first symbol (sign of a comment with three circles) on the right side of your screen

This will open a window. Go to the folder where you downloaded the subtitle file and choose it.

Step 6: That’s it – enjoy watching with Arabic

Great extension: you can easily insert arabic subtitles to any netflix series.

For many (I’d say almost all popular TV series) there are ARABIC subtitles available on subflicks.com:

  • Breaking Bad
  • Orange is the New Black
  • Stranger Things
  • Fargo
  • How to get away with murder

By the way – this also works for other languages such as Hebrew, Russian, or Mandarin Chinese.

Do you know any better justification for binge watching than saying that you are actually studying Arabic? 😉

Remark There are other benefits if you install Super Netflix:
  • Change video bitrate (higher quality speed).
  • Skip intro automatically.
  • Five modes to change brightness, saturation, and contrast
  • Change Netflix streaming server (if streaming is slow)
  • Control volume with the mouse wheel.
  • Show streaming info

  1. Dear,

    Compliments for this fantastic website!

    I was curious if there are Arabic series available, which offer Arabic subtitles with it. For example, my favorite show is سجن النساء, yet understanding every word as a Dutch native is hard! I reckoned that hearing and reading the text would help a lot in my progress. Any idea?

    Best,
    Mina

    1. I doubt you’ll find that, as almost all Arabic productions don’t care for the subtitles, and also, the production is usually in a local dialect, not the standard Arabic (fus’ha)…

Any thoughts or ideas about this? Leave a reply!

Which Arabic font do you use for Microsoft Word?

Many people use the standard fonts that come with MS Windows or MacOS when they want to type in Arabic. Since many people do not really change the standard fonts in MS Word, they will end up using Times New Roman or Arial. Although they mostly do the job, sometimes they are difficult to read. Are you tired of these fonts? There is an easy way out.
