Hello,

I am on the search of a good professional subtitling software, if possible with a free trial version.

Can anybody give advices and and recommendations?

Wincaps, Spot, EZ Jun 21, 2012

Hi Julianne,

I know Wincaps, EZTitle and Spot editor are good software and have a trial version. My personal favourite is Swift Create but you have to pay for the dongle to be able to try it.

Good luck.

I'm also a Swift user... Jun 25, 2012

..but would recommend Wincaps, Isis or Spot.

A Swift trial costs around £600 +VAT which is deducted from the purchase price if you go on to buy a full version.

I haven't used Spot yet, but it certainly gets good writeups and is very versatile.

It's a number of years since I last used Wincaps, and, to be honest, I didn't get on well with it at all. They may have changed things since then, but I didn't like having to switch between different modes for different tasks.

Isis is also very versatile, and has good customer support.

Poliscript is another option, but I can't say I know too much about it since the last piece of their software that I used was DOS-based!

Most of the systems are pretty much compatible with each other, using a range of common file formats (pac, stl, srt, txt, etc), but there are some issues - ususally with caption positioning - so it's important to check which systems your end clients are using and investigate compatibility before investing.
