I am looking for a software that can make a German subtitle for a German movie.

There is this German TV show Stromberg for which I couldn't find any subtitle. So I want to make its subtitle by myself. Is there any software to do that? I want a software that, first, makes movies' audio to text and, then, make a subtitle of that text for that movie.

I used to translate shows in my native language. By far the easiest one I have found is Subtitle Edit.


Subtitle Edit is a free (open source) editor for video subtitles - a subtitle editor :)

With SE you can easily adjust a subtitle if it is out of sync with the video in several different ways. You can also use SE for making new subtitles from scratch (do use the time-line/waveform/spectrogram) or translating subtitles.

The best feature I found was that it displays an audio timeline, which you can use to synchronize your subtitles 100% correctly.
