Dear all,
Would you please help me understand what "time-coding" means?
I was asked by a client to transcribe a project and the client asked if I could provide "time-coding SUB/SRT/TXT file".

Many thanks in advance.

time-coding Jul 13, 2011

Timecoding or spotting is entering the in and out time codes (in: when the subtitle appears - out: when it disappears) in hours, minutes, seconds and frames. The most accurate way to do so is by using a subtitling programme (such as Spot or Swift).

Dear Mr. Ali,
Actually, I don't have any idea, but I found something about that time coding. I think both links are useful.
Best regards,
