Free application for creating subtitle-based files and extensions

Subtitle Workshop is an excellent multimedia application in the event that a user wishes to create subtitles that will be added to an existing video file. It is often used by editors, translators and anyone who has been looking for a streamlined method to create a professional presentation. As multiple languages are supported, it may also address a number of business requirements.

Main Features and Uses

Subtitle Workshop is able to create bespoke subtitles in over 60 different formats and it is said that this number will continue to grow. The interface can be customized based off of user preferences and this will help to streamline the conversion process. It also offers an automatic system that will detect timing errors; a very real problem when creating a set of subtitles for different screens or audio sections. A fully integrated video player is another useful addition, as it precludes the use of third-party platforms during the editing process. Users that have downloaded this program highlight the following features:

. The "delay fixing" feature is great.

. It's good for beginners.

. It supports many formats.

. It's really good for timecoding.

Other Accessories

Subtitle Workshop displays relevant details in regards to the file such as text timing and any user-defined rules that may have been entered. Standard style tags such as italics and boldface type are supported while a spell checker is included as a standard feature. This open-source software will be updated from time to time. If you are looking for other free alternatives, we recommend you to download Aegisub or Subtitle Edit.
