Export subtitles as time-coded transcript?
on Feb 7, 2017 at 11:09:54 pm

Hi all,

I'm working on a film that requires a lot of translation. Instead of creating a timecoded translated transcript, I did much of the translation as subtitles within a Final Cut Pro 7 project file. Is there a way I can export these subtitles as a text document with timecodes? Some third party software I can use?

I could also bring the whole project into Premiere and try to export it that way. Does anyone have suggestions? It would be too time-consuming and complicated to copy and paste them all, and too much work has been done on hundreds of hours of footage.

Thanks for any advice!

Check out Title Exchange Pro from Spherico:

It does an incredible variety of things and should be ideal for your FCP 7 project.

Don't take it into Premiere as this will make the process a lot more tricky.

Thank you, Simon! Have you used it yourself? Were you able to make an actual time-coded transcript and did you have to do any modifications to it?

I've used it in numerous different ways and on pretty much every subtitle job we ever do.

The simplest method for you purposes it is take an XML out of FCP 7 and turn it into a Text file that you can then edit, and turn back into whatever type of subtitle file you choose.

But that's just the simplest option - there are countless possibilities, depending on your needs.

I can't recommend it enough.
