Create or repair movie subtitles even in custom formats in 35 languages, with Subtitle Workshop
Subtitle Workshop is a free but powerful editor, supporting a lot of subtitle formats and advanced functions, providing output in DVDSubtitle, SAMI, Sonic Scenarist, SubStation Alpha, SubViewer 1 & 2 and TMPlayer formats, but being able to save a subtitle in your own custom format. It includes also spell checking and advanced preview, subtitle fix, OCR errors fix, and regular expressions.
The program is able to edit about 56 subtitle formats, handling both time and frame based subtitles. It can load plain text files giving you the chance to set yourself the timings.
Subtitle Workshop supports styles (bold, italic, underline) and colors. You can select foreground color of the subtitles, background color (or transparent), show border or not, show shadow or not, border and shadow’s width. It can show your subtitles as you edit them over the video.
Over 35 languages are supported. Errors can be marked in the main list with a different font style and color. It can split subtitles (at selection, at given time or frame, etc.), or in an undefined number (equal time parts or lines, etc.).
You can also use Subtitle Workshop to unite any number of subtitle parts, even in different formats with different FPS (you can select a different FPS for each file). The program lets you also configure a delay (positive or negative, time or frames), even maximum and minimum duration.
Subtitles can be adjusted by first and last dialogs, using two points (linear algorithm). Time expander and reducer changes the overall time under certain conditions.
