Subtitle Translation Wizard can help you translate subtitles. The program supports editing and translating SRT and SUB translation files. This is very useful when you need to translate a subtitle or correct an existing one. The application can also use automated translation to assist you in these processes.
Subtitle Translation Wizard has a modern tabbed interface. It has six tabs, each with different functions. The Home tab allows you to use the basic file managing functions, such as loading the subtitles in the source and target languages respectively. It also lets you set the language pair. There is also a button to start automatic translation. The interface will show the lines in two columns, one for the original text and the other for the translation. Depending on your preferences, you can translate either from scratch or use the automatic translation as a starting point. The second tab is labeled Timing and it will allow you to adjust the show and hide times for each individual line or set a given delay, so that the subtitles synchronize with the spoken lines. The Edit tab lets you carry out such operations as adding a new line, combining two existing lines as well as copying and pasting lines. The Search tab is intended for operations of finding and replacing words. The Dictionary tab will let you manage the phrases that you have added to the dictionary and includes a study mode. Finally, the Tools tab lets you convert file schema and play the loaded subtitles. The subtitles can be saved in different ways. You can save the original and the translated subtitles separately, or you can also mix them into a single file.
In general, Subtitle Translation Wizard is a very intuitive application for translating subtitles. Unfortunately, there are lots of different subtitle file formats around and this program only supports two of them. What is worse, it does not allow previewing the movie while editing the subtitles. In addition, the trial version will let you translate only the first lines of every project. My advice: if you think this application does not really meet your needs, it is my duty to tell you that there is an excellent free application for the same purpose.
