Hi everyone!

I make sometimes subtitles as hobby, or i translate existing ones to my native language, if i feel that other people have also watch the movie what i just watched. Some of that i uploaded to OS as well. I am using macOS, and i did not found a good srt editor as i wanted to correct the timing or just wanted to create missing frames - even not for a few bucks, and the others was really expensive but overrated - so i did make my own app. I want it just to introduce you. I hope some of you may like it. I want later implementing a lot of things yet, like spell checking of every frames, soundwave view, maybe creating frames automatically trough analyzing the audio track and more, but its now the first version - however in my opinion more powerful and handy than other alternatives.
If you are curious please visit the apps launch page. I hope its not that bad that i posted this, and i hope there are more people wo have the same trouble.

I like this, pretty exceptional these days :)

Nowadays a VPN is a must for everyone. A VPN allows you safe surfing and protects you against spying governments and companies.
I advise AirVPN - from € 2,75 per month. Click the below banner for more info.

What a great initiative!

There was/is no - as far as I know - no translation software for Mac.
Now I have zero programming skills, but SE is one of the very best translation programs for Windows. You can do all the functions you would like to have with SE (wave,spell-check etc).

SE is open-source, would it be possible to re-write this for macOS?

I don't want to rewrite it, because my app uses a completely different paradigm with its timeline based workflow, i like things just keep simple.
I was working now for a while on the iPad and iPhone version of this app - and deployed already in the app store for every one - i think i makes fun to work with it on an iPad.

...and i work on a bigger update:
I implemented a fullscreen player functionality - so just opt out the timeline, and act as a normal video player - we are now able to import video urls too. It was neccessary because the player i used before did not ordinary handle the srt files while playing (and it is a famous player) so it was just simpler use my own.
The other biggest thing i plan, to integrate the Opensubtitles API, so i can import the subs directly in the app, and if i do some translation jobs, i will be able to deploy my subs to Opensubtitles via the app. Its also quiet useful if i want to watch a movie - and i watch movies only with subtitles.

It will take some time to do my assignment but I guess the updates are coming soon. I will inform you here later.

Thumbs up! I've just come across your app on reddit. Definitely, it'll be one of the best tools for my Mac, I'm sure.
I also like the idea of custom colors and other styling features. Btw, any updates about spell checking?
