Assuming I have two subtitle files with .srt extension,

  1. ENGLISH_DVD.srt - Subtitles in English language obtained from a DVD
  2. TURKISH_TV.srt - Subtitles in Turkish language obtained from a TV broadcast

Also assuming these two .srt files are synced for videos different FPS or length.

How can I combine these two files such that the resulting file has the timestamps from the ENGLISH_DVD and has the actual subtitle content from TURKISH_TV, so that I can watch the DVD version with Turkish subtitles?

edit: I know about "linear time correction" method but it did not produce satisfactory results for me.

Wouldn't you need to sync the timestamps for both before attempting a merge? Otherwise you're going to end up with the Turkish subs out of sync with the action on screen. –  Karan May 26 '13 at 22:56
Hmm, I was thinking: I have 10 timestamps (from English file) and 10 subtitle lines (from Turkish file), so I want to merge them... haven't really thought about syncing. –  Cihat Keser May 27 '13 at 5:39
are the number of timestamps, equal in the both subtitle files? could you upload them? –  living being Dec 28 '14 at 20:33
