Subtitle Edit – Create/adjust/sync/translate any formats of video subtitles

People who like to watch movies probably have encountered such a situation: the cineframe or sound track is not synchronized with the subtitles. Watching films like this is wasting the film itself and our time, and that’s really a mental torture at the same time! While don’t worry, we can use some software to easily adjust/correct the movie subtitles.

Subtitle Edit is free, open-source and universal text-format-based video subtitles editing tool written by Nikolaj Lynge Olsson from Denmark. It can read/write/convert 200+ subtitle formats in all languages/encodings (ANSI, UTF-8, and other Unicode).

Subtitle Edit integrates the advantages of many subtitle editors (such as error checking, merging, splitting, editing based on time axis, etc.) in one place. Plus, it supports real-time preview of subtitles. From the perspective of design, this is based on GStreamer, which is up-and-coming. Its another handy feature is setting the position and duration of subtitle through the waveform of audio track. Although this still requires the skills of making subtitles, it can yet be regarded as a very good supplementary means.
