Unfortunately it lacks support for diacritics (quite used in my native language) that make this little application useless for my subtitle works. I guess it could work for English subtitles, but having "Subtitle Edit" program, who needs anything more...

Mar 13, 2016 Version: 5.1 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 2/10 Value for money: 5/10 Overall: 4/10

Brilliant Little Tool.

Jun 20, 2009 Version: 4 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Very good piece of software. It does what it promises, it's easy to use, unobtrusive and flexible. It generates a file in various formats (I tested ASS) that can be pasted onto the video file (I use Avidemux to do so). I couldn't ask for more.

Jun 9, 2009 Version: 4.0 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Very nice tool.

These tool could open many "difficult-to-read" subtitles in my personal tests. And very important: could save them correctly later!

To save subtitles Jubler its very nice too. Specially when you need to use Unicode to "fancy" or non-occidental languages: chinese, greek, etc.

I recommend this software.
