Need help importing .txt subtitles in DVD Studio Pro 4
on Sep 20, 2009 at 5:11:46 pm

Hey everyone,
So I got a job doing subtitles for an international company and the need 9 different languages. I found out how to write .txt files in text edit so that I can time up the sentences accordingly. With this I figured once I did the english, I could copy and paste the other languages and create a file for each. Should work right? Well when I import the subtitles in DVD SP they come up in the right places, but there is a backslash at the end of each subtitle. My .txt file looks just like the example on lynda.com, but for some reason I cannot figure out why DVD SP is adding this to the end of the subtitles when I import them. Also, the last subtitle has a bracket at the end..... Can anyone help me and let me know what I'm doing wrong?! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Does this happen to the English or to other language files as well?

Can you send the .txt file to me at
neil at sadwelkar dot com

I think it has invisible characters that need cleaning up.
