Hi there, I'm going to do the subtitling for a clip but I do not know what software to be used, as this is the first time I'm doing this. Please let me know the most popular tool used to make sub. Thank you!

It's not that simple Apr 23, 2013

FYI a short description of the entire process may be found on this page.

Unless you really know how it works and what you are doing, "popular" software won't cut it. Users of some programs whose price tags carry a 4-digit sum in USD say it's easy to get high quality from them without knowing much, but I'm not so sure about that.

excellent web resource Sep 18, 2013

A quick thank you to Jose' for providing the link to his subtitling site. A great resource for those who translate subtitles whether novices or veterans.
