X-Title SRT4Translation

X-Title SRT4Translation (S4T) is a simple and efficient tool to check and prepare SRT files for translation or simply change encoding.

FCPX version 10.4.4 and higher allows to import SRT files. This is a huge step forward but non standard encoded SRT files often will fail. SRT4Translation is your free helper here. The app works for other NLEs and apps as well.

Just drag a SRT from the Finder to the application window. That's it. The app will split the SRT into the timing data and dialogue text which can be auto-saved or manually to any other location.
Use that file for translation or with Google Translate, then open the translated file and merge it with the timed SRT data again.
The current version is free - but you can make a donation.
