  • Choose your file and click 'Continue'

  • When your file is read, click on it to open it. Hey presto - you're in the Subtitle Generator :)

  1. Upload a Transcript

Natural Subtitling Engine

The Natural Subtitling Engine is an algorithm we've developed on top of our transcription product which uses millisecond-level timestamps and heuristics to generate high-quality subtitles.

Happy Scribe provides two types of subtitles:

  • SubRip Cap (.SRT) is a very basic subtitling format that can be used on most web publishing platforms (Youtube, Facebook, Vimeo, etc...)

  • EBU-STL (.STL) is a European format used by many broadcasters for subtitling TV programs.
