Subtitle editor

Subtitle Editor is a GTK tool to edit subtitles. It can be used for new subtitles or as a tool to transform, edit, correct and refine existing subtitle. This program also shows sound waves, which makes it easier to synchronise subtitles to voices.

SubtitleEditor 0.38.0 was released about two weeks ago and it includes many bug fixes such as:
  • Fix sort subtitles
  • Opening SEP project wont open a Keyframes file automatically
  • Subtitles in MicroDVD format don't display correct
  • Scale option doesn't work correctly with frame-based subtitles
  • Broken character count (column translation)
  • Unable to set subtitle times after importing plain text
  • Fix English errors

The new version also comes with speed improvements and movie fps dectection.
