Apparently one can work on pac-files with the freeware Titlevision TV2003 Edit, with which you can work on translation, not spotting (=timing).

Are there any other free/inexpensive subtitling softwares that support pac and allow you to work on translation and/or spotting?

Hi Viivi,

Which is quite good, and they have a "Pay as you go" plan which works out quite cheap. You still have to take that into account in your final pricing.

I think there are also online subtitling software with a similar "pay as you go" system.

Good luck with your project!

How to check the video? May 24, 2011

Hi again and sorry for my delayed response.

I have managed to work on pac-files with Titlevision Editor with no problems. However, the free Editor version provides no video feed, so I need some advice on how to check the translation on the video.

Any other software for that? In what format should I save the translation and in what format do I need the video to be? Titlevision Editor reads and writes pac, rac, 890, and text files, but I am willing to try others as

You should save your subtitles in SRT Jun 12, 2011

Tittlevision supports exporting your subtitles in SRT format. Then you can view and edit them in Subtitle Workshop.
