SRT Translator is a lightweight, yet efficient application that can translate subtitle files between a variety of languages, saving the huge amount of time you’d spend doing so yourself.
It’s developed in Java and because of this, it’s cross platform – you may run it under Windows, Linux and Mac all the same. The fact that it’s a Java based application also limits it to a plane interface that lacks the looks and the interactivity that is much needed on the software market nowadays.
But looks have nothing to do with functionality, and SRT Translator stands proof to this statement. Using Google’s engine, the application manages to output accurate translations for a very rich list of languages.
Afrikaan, Arabic, Armenian, Basque, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, Estonian, Filipino, Finish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Malay, Slovak, Romanian, Turkish are just a few of the languages compatible with SRT Translator.
In truth, the list includes almost sixty supported languages, between which the contents of a SRT file can be translated seamlessly. Simply load the SubRip file, select the source and the destination language and wait patiently for the result.
And we really mean patiently, for it will take a while until you will be delivered the results. It took more than a half hour for it to translate a Romanian subtitle to English, but considering the amount of time it would have taken us to process it ourselves, it’s acceptable.
We must specify that we ran it with the High Quality translation mode enabled; faster results may be delivered by the Poor Quality option, although expectations should be lowered as far as accuracy is concerned.
In a nutshell, SRT Translator is worth experimenting with, considering the low effort you put into it for a task that is so difficult and time consuming to perform manually.
SRT Translator is developed in Java and it enables you to translate SRT files from one language to another, while keeping the subtitle lines synchronized.
SRT Translator is an open source software that manages to translate your subtitles via Google Translate. SRT Translator comes included with an automatic spell checker.
