    Yes, exactly, I am thinking that they aren’t going to want to mess around, but will check out Jubler. I have been googling this for days and didn’t see it!

    Thanks so much Keith. I’ll have a look. As I said to Andreas, Jubler just didn’t come up in my searches and I am keen to see what can work – even if it’s for future projects as this comes up a lot in my world.

    Sounds like the way to go. I think these translators will want a super simple option. I just need to get the formatting right from the start. So they provide timecode in to out: “00:00:00:00-00:03:05:22 tab description” and your software will interpret this correctly and export out an srt that will be accurate on import?

    In the future you can contact me. We translate videos into any language and we can either provide you with a timed .srt file, or a dubbed voice track. You can easily lay those back into your project.

    I just did that today. We translated 4 videos into Chinese, and I inserted the new Chinese voices into the videos.

    Here’s a link to my webpage : Just click on Translation and then on the drop down.

    Keith, have just been playing around with Jubler and I’m going to see if any of the translators are willing to give it a go, otherwise I’ll do Andreas’s method. If they are willing, it makes so much sense. It’s the kind of thing I was looking for but I know not everyone will be as excited as me.

    You can use TC In, TC Out, text but I even would go further and say use TC In, Text only.

    You probably have to touch each caption anyway, the translator not. Typing timecodes also are known to error prone.

    So if you go the simple way TC In, tab, text

    The detailed way: TC In, comma, tab, TC Out, comma, tab, Text (Spruce STL)

    The translator doesn’t need to type comma, tab – just tab. You have to replace all tabs with cmma, tabs.
