2.51 is still the best

about Subtitle Workshop · ·

SW 2.51 is the best subtitle editor I've ever worked with. It is very feature rich, it's basicly has all features one could need, and also it has very clear-cut UI. It is also translated to a great many languages. The newer versions either lost features or some features became hard to find due to the oversimplification of the UI, in todays minimalistic trend. (Also a lot less translations.)
Despite it's age, 2.51 it is still usable and very good. It's only flaw is that becouse of it's age it can't play modern video formats. One way to adress this is to make a crude Xvid-encoded, .avi container version of your movie to use for preview in the editor. Also many edits can be done without the need of a video preview in the editor.
