In this tutorial Automatically create Google translate subtitles. I am going to explain to you how to do an automatic translation with Google translate. You have to take this into account. That it doesn’t go perfectly this way. This way everything is literally translated. As an example, “Mr. Gold” becomes Mr. Gold. Of course, not as it should be. Unfortunately you will have to adjust this manually.
Download the English subtitles
You can also use a language other than English. But the Google translate works best with English. These are also more available. Pay attention! Whether it’s not a hard-of-hearing English version. Otherwise, you also get translations like “The door makes a squeaky sound”. Sometimes you can easily recognize these subtitles. Then it says at SDH. This stands for Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing.
For starters, you need an English subtitle. This can be found on the various subtitle sites. If you have downloaded this subtitle. Then this is often an SRT file. You will find this “subtitle.srt” file. to a “subtitle.txt” file. Google does not handle SRT files.
