I need to read 2 subtitles with 2 different languages. I'd like to have them displayed line by line like this clip :
I need one line English and one line Chinese then one line English and one line Chinese ,not one group of English lines then one group of Chinese lines.

For example :

Sub 1 :
This is
Subtitle 1

Sub 2 :
And this is
Subtitle 2

After mix :
This is
And this is
Subtitle 1
Subtitle 2

Hope you can understand.
Any help is appreciated.

Just mix the lines of the two subtitle files in one, while respecting the time of initial appearance.

Do you know any software can do that ? – ITFan Jul 14 '11 at 12:50
It is first important to know the file format you have. Your subtitles files are .srt? – SilverM-A Jul 14 '11 at 22:37
Yes, they are .srt. Thanks – ITFan Jul 15 '11 at 14:33
Sorry for the response delay! I don't think there's an existing software for that! You just have to open both file (in notepad) and merge manually! Just respect the timing ascending order and all will be ok! – SilverM-A Aug 14 '11 at 23:45
Thanks anyway ! – ITFan Aug 15 '11 at 14:30

I realize that this question is old but it may help some people. Disclaimer: I'm a founder of the company below!

At fleex, we released a video player focused on language learning. We don't display two subtitles at the same time like you said - too difficult for the brain to read two subtitles in different languages - but we "mix" them. That is, we alternate the display of English and Chinese (for you) subtitles.

When you pause the video though, both subtitles are displayed (see picture here)

And it's not just Chinese, we have 30 languages so pick yours!

Hope this can help someone.
