Re: [libreoffice-l10n] Video subtitles - srt files?

The text in srt is broken according to the proper timing, which makes
sense. Wouldn't it be better to translate directly the SRT files to have
the correctly timed close captions directly?

Yesterday, I hinted at Mike that the (automatically generated CC) .srt made by YouTube was severely broken; the text itself has errors, but also the textflow/segments are quite random. Thus, the timings are incorrect.

Mike probably has his own English .srt file, with good timings, and will likely fill it in with the translations and submit to YouTube.

BUT there's a hitch: Many languages have different length of those sentences; at least in my case I had to split the segments differently from what you'd do for English.
I'm pretty sure there are other languages having this problem.

So, I have prepared my own .srt for Icelandic (testing right now) which I'm going to send Mike (in a matter of minutes).

Would you like to have the English .srt I made, with correct text but also some additional frames/segments?

Best regards,
