Possible Duplicate:
Which is the best subtitle file editor (srt)?

I have ripped my Kill Bill DVD's but the Japanese parts aren't subtitled in English... I found some subtitles online but the only ones which seem to work are the ones for the entire movie. I want to edit the srt file so that the only parts left are the ones where they actually speak Japanese.

How would I go about doing this? What program can I use, and how easy is it to edit?

Also, I'd like to hard code the file after so that I never have to worry about the srt's again.

This is not a duplicate! Please re-open. I'm specifically trying to figure out how to edit the .srt so that I can get rid of subtitles. I'm not asking how to sync the file with my video! – GiH Oct 31 '09 at 15:35
Which the duplicate question does provide. Did you even look at the answers on the duplicate? – BinaryMisfit Oct 31 '09 at 15:40
It does not explain how to hard code a file with the subtitles. – GiH Oct 31 '09 at 15:51
Please see my comments on meta. I have locked the post to prevent further edits, and the second part of this question should be asked as a new question. – BinaryMisfit Oct 31 '09 at 19:52

I strictly recommend Subtitle Edit.


  • Visually sync/adjust a subtitle (start/end position and speed).
  • Create/add subtitle lines
  • Translation helper (for manual translation)
  • Convert between SubRib, MicroDVD, Substation Alpha, SAMI, and more
  • Import VobSub sub/idx binary subtitles (code is ripped from Subtitle Creator by Erik Vullings/Manusse)
  • Can read and write UTF-8 and other unicode files (besides ANSI)
  • Show texts earlier/later
  • Merge/split
  • Adjust display time
  • Fix common errors wizard
  • Remove text for hear impaired
  • Renumbering
  • Swedish to danish translation built-in (via Multi Translator Online)
  • Google translation built-in
  • Spell checking via Open Office dictionaries/NHunspell (many dictionaries available)
  • Effects: Typewriter and karoake
  • Can open subtitles embedded inside matroska files
  • History/undo manager

You can use VirtualDub to hard code subtitles into video files. You can find the instructions here.

I believe you can do this with gedit as well.
