Easiest way to create subtitles

Subtitle Factory makes it Incredibly easy to type and insert subtitles. Be sure to read the brief user guide at the Tranquility Base website; only took a minute or two to get up and running. A powerful yet simple app on MAS that's just 2.4MB? Yuji is a wizard.

This does exactly what it says and more than I expected. The ability to interpret attributes from the SRT file is a nice touch.

I was also pleased that this app lists all the tracks in the open video, including audio and video (not just subtitles), and allows some editing of these tracks. I had a video with an ambiguous audio track (most apps showed it as "unknown") which meant that players didn't automatically show subtitles (assuming the track to be English). In Subtitle Factory I was able to very quickly specify that the audio was actually Icelandic, save and all was normal again. Recommended.

BTW - not sure why another review claims it doesn't work with SRT. It clearly does this very well - good text encoding options too.

Rather nice app minus one flaw
by efaneuf
Mar 11, 2021 - version 1.2.4
Since there is a lot of MKV files out there, not supporting this container makes the app only marginally useful to me. But for the low price I bought it. Would certainly give it 5 stars if it supported that MKV container
Ottimo per principianti come me

Io l'ho trovato piuttosto intuitivo e facile da usare.
Sono riuscita a gestire bene la tempistica delle battute senza troppi sforzi. forse è un po' difficile (le prime volte) capire come editare il testo (corsivo, grassetto ecc), però per il prezzo secondo me è fatto veramente bene.
E sono una principiante che ha iniziato a lavorare su srt di video molto lunghi.

Very good so far...
by Bloogybloogy
May 09, 2020 - version 1.2.2
I occasionally add captions to videos for work but had the hardest time finding a subtitle editor that had working keyboard shortcuts and didn't have the "cross platform look". Subtitle Factory works intuitively enough that I was able to dive adding captions immediately and export the .srt file seamlessly. Time will tell how well this app holds up to regular use, but its well worth the money so far.

Two things I'd like to see in the future: 1) Automatically stop the video when using the "Insert Subtitle" keyboard shortcut (currenlty have to stop the video before the shortcut will work), and 2) Add a waveform viewer to scrub through the video and more accurately align the audio with the subtitle text.

It does not open my srt-s
by Balkanistan
Jan 11, 2020 - version 1.2.2
It does not open .srt for editing. Wasted money...
As you can see in the description of the app, the supported formats are mp4, m4v and mov files.
It allows you to add subtitles with SRT to these formats but cannot open or edit SRTs. It's not an editor for SRTs.

worthless if you can't save it
by LuckyLika
Jan 08, 2020 - version 1.2.2
Bought this and spenty an hour working on subtitles for a work project. Then I realized it, this app doesnt allow you to save your video unless to their app. I need to save the file as mp4 and i cant! Rip Off! Wish I could get my money back. Waste of my time and money, misleading.
The app does save MP4 as MP4, M4V as M4V and MOV as MOV with subtitle tracks you created by the app.
I’m not sure the point of your complain but If movie players does not show subtitles, check whether the subtitles state is ‘ON’.
For example, in QuickTime player, choose View > Subtitles, then choose a language. You can also click the Subtitles button in the playback controls or press and hold the Subtitles button in the Touch Bar to see a list of available options.

I updated to the latest OS as of mid-December 2019 before downloading this. It doesn’t do anything. When I try to open an .srt or .smi or .mkv file through the app, they’re all greyed out. I tried opening files from my desktop and from my flash drive but it won’t work through the app no matter what I do. When I go to “Subtitle-> New Track” that option is completely greyed out too. The whole app is useless to me.
As you can see in the description of the app, it supports mp4, m4v and mov files.

Basic, but well-built app; perfect for the price
by Aikinai
Dec 28, 2018 - version 1.1.8
I needed a basic app for adding subtitles and didn't really like the look of the cross-platform open source stuff that seemed to be common, so I bought this to give it a shot. I was quite impressed it's a well-built, native app that has everythign you need for basic subtitle editing.

It also seems to be well-supported as it was very quickly updated for Mojave, even including dark mode.

It seems to have solid support for multiple tracks and metadata, but I haven't used it extensively. I also didn't actually edit the video file; I just exported the SRT and then hard-coded with ffmpeg myself separately.

Ik wil een refund. Dit is misleiding. Er staat meerdere subtitles fragmenten toe te kunnen voegen… Dat is onzin in ieder geval. Ik zie graag een refunding tegemoet.

J’ai envoyé un mail au support, on verrà.
Pour l’instant je déconseille l’achat!
The supported languages are English and Japanese.
To launch the app in English, not in Japanese:
In the System Preference of your Mac, choose the Language & Region, and then reorder the languages list as English is upper than Japanese. Or remove Japanese from the list.

Being a fan of foriegn films, subititles were an imporant thing for me to have. I had been looking for a while for a free application that would do the job, and I had no luck. I decided to give this porgram a try and it does exactly what I want it to do -import subtitle files into movies! It is done in under a minute per movie and when you actually view the movie, you have the option to turn the subtitles off. I am very pleased with this application, and would recomend it to all.

I come from Windows and there I used to use a great app called ‘Subtitle Workshop’ (free), and now that I’m in MacOS I’m searching for something like that, but haven’t found something similar.
Compared to the later, this app lacks of 2 important features: It dosen’t tell me the duration of the subtitle, and it doesn’t have an option to change the encoding, so it’s annoying to be changing every foreign language character when you have to use another language that english. I paid for nothing. It should have an evaluation version.

Mac App Storeからダウンロードした一部のアプリが突然開けなくなる問題は、国内外多くのアプリで発生しているようです。Appleからデベロッパーに対しては、この問題の解決方法がメールによりアナウンスがありました。メールのキャプチャー参照。これによると、アプリユーザーはMacを再起動するか、OS X El Capitan (v10.11.2)にアップデートすれば解決するようです。再購入の必要はありません。 原因はMac App Storeアプリの認証に関する不具合で、くわしくは外部記事のこちらを参照してください。

I find this a great basic app for inserting soft subtitles or creating your own. Its quite easy to creat your own subtitles. Its a bit harder to rectify imported srt. subtitles when they are all out of whack by the exact same time frame. For example 6 seconds. Its very time consuming to change every single subtitle. If there is a way to change the whole file to start 6 seconds later (or earlier) Id be keen to know how.

This is a terrible program. It simply stops responding when you ask it to do what it's supposed to do - add a subtitle track to a video - and I have had to force quit each time I try to use it. Also, the subtitles aren't aligned with the video even thought the SRT clearly shows when the subs are supposed to appear. Waste of $5, I advise you not to put yourselves through this pointless exercise.
