How to get proof of hours?

How do I get proof of hours done doing captions and translating for videos? I need proof of at least 50 volunteer hours in order to graduate my high school.

Thank you for this important question, Raymond Chen.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to prove how many hours were needed to make a given set of captions or to provide translated subtitles. It depends on too many variables: audio quality, complexity, captioner/translator's experience.

You should discuss with your school how to evaluate your captioning/translating work. Could you and them agree on a formula like "Captioning/translating time = video length x 3 (or another rough constant)"?
