Hello everyone, just finalized my profile here at ProZ, I've actually worked on subtitling some videos before, mostly for educational/entertainment purposes, but I did those on Windows Movie Maker or straight on Youtube, so I would like to know any suggestions for a dedicated subtitling software, I'm not looking for something fancy just functional. Thanks in advance any comment/advice is much appreciated.

I don't do subtitling myself, so I can't offer any recommendations, but there have been loads of forum discussions on the subject- and just about anything else you can think of related to translating - so search the Proz forum for "subtitling software" or similar to find the results, and you'll find lots of useful information. An important component of our work is research, so I would encourage you to get good at it starting here.... See more

I suggest Aegisub: it is free, rather intuitive, and has everything you would need.
