  03/05/2019 - Added langpack  
   New basic Korean langpack. Visit localization section.

  07/04/2013 - Born on 4th of July - Subtitles Translator 2.00 finally available!  
   I know it took longer than expected (over seven years, really?!?) but the new version of Subtitles Translator is finally here. With the new media player from VisioForge, Subtitles Translator should be Win7/8 compattible so you don't need to keep the WinXP WM anymore :)
» Completely rewritten movie player part - new internal ActiveX control from VisioForge.
» Multiple audio tracks within file container supported together with quick switching inside the application.
» Better algorithm for resizing video window to fit the actual aspect ratio.
» Fixed bug causing to fail update the status bar when switching between the grids with TAB key.
» Fixed bug causing wrong number of selected rows in status bar when selecting from first row.
» Fixed minor bugs.
   Please let me know if there are any problems with the installation, as I am delivering Subtitles Translator inside an installation package for the first time (due to the ease of .ocx registration which could prove for some of the users difficult).

  02/21/2013 - Upcoming release v2.0  
   Good news everyone. In the upcoming week or two, I shall release new Subtitles Translator v2.0 with completely rewritten media player. I have incorporated free version of VisioForge Media Player Lite hence I don't need to pay for the ActiveX component (nevertheless donations are still welcomed). I have already most of the code ready, just need some polishing and preparing new strings for localization. Once I get that done, I'll try to release the new version asap. Stay tuned for more info!

  04/09/2010 - Windows Vista & Windows 7 fix  
   Finally, I have spent some time with Subtitles Translator (found out I almost forgot how to compile that thing) and since I have a work laptop with Windows Vista installed (which I hate), I goofed around with the movie player not displaying the frame numbers anymore. As it turned out, the problem is with Microsoft excluding WMP 6.4 ActiveX library from Vista and Windows 7 distribution. The only ActiveX player is WMP11 I believe. To fix the issue, I have included the WMP 6.4 OCX library from Windows XP and you can grab it from download page or straight from here. Once you download and extract the archive, read the included readme.txt to guide you with the installation. I have tested the fix under Vista Business 32bit and once installed the OCX, I was able to play .avi files by frame numbers, again. I encountered one problem, though. Once I uninstalled the OCX and tried to run ST, I've got some nasty error and ST crashed. Well, anyway... I am most certain that majority of you are already using some other software to translate the subtitles, but if you are the one still determined to use ST, give the fix a try and please report back to me, if it's working or not.
   But this is not the end of the story! Since I run into these problems with WMP6.4 vs. WMP11, I have decided to include some third party ActiveX Movie Player into ST to avoid using WMP at all. The downside of this is that it will cost me at least $70 to buy the license for such a player (maybe as high as $170 if I want some nice features as overlay transparent subtitles), thus it would be nice of you to donate me some cash to cover for the expenses (who am I kidding, anyway?). I already received two donations few years back, so I know there are generous people out there. This could also mean, that ST will be also able to support new formats like .mkv and new codecs e.g. H.264.
   Currently, I am testing players from Viscom, Gogo and VisioForge. If you know of some good (and cheap) ActiveX Media Player, I could embed into ST please let me know.
   EDIT: According to reports and my own testing on Windows7, even this fix will not help with Windows7. Looks like the only solution will be once the new media player is included.

  12/31/2008 - Happy New Year  
   Wanted to wish you all Happy New Year 2009, hopefully it will bring something new to Subtitles Translator as well Hmmm?.
   Just a small change - Turkish langpack has been updated to ver. 1.72.

  08/22/2008 - Yearly update  
   A year passed and I found out that I did not code a single line which feels pretty bad Buaaaah. I really wish I could spend more time developing ST but with all the real life work, it's simply not possible (good old college times). Well, never mind... I must find a slot where I could squeeze in a new version of ST!

  08/19/2007 - Cashback time  
   Hey, I have just received my first donation through PayPal! It really made my day so I decided to put up an update regarding ST.
Currently, there are things on my TODO list which I have not mastered to code in, yet. I want to code my own menus, but have not found simple tutorial for doing this as of today. I know there are many already coded packages for this but I wanted to do it on my own so there are only things I want and they are done in a way I want. If you know such tutorial or piece of code that would work in Borland C++ Builder, please let me know.
I am also planning to implement style editor alowing you to format text in the grid to italic, bold, change color and some other features, but I did not have time yet to crack down the stupid StringGrid class ni BCB even though I have got some tutorial for that. If I ever manage to succeed, I am sure it would become a very handy feature.

  06/04/2006 - Work on Subtitles Translator 1.72  
   I told you! The new version 1.72 is in already in half way state of completion, so hang in tight... If you want to see the progress, check the forum.

  02/05/2006 - Work in Progress  
   I am sure that many of you as the same question... Is the development of ST at stop? Will there be some new versions out? The answer is - no and hopefully. In the last year I did not have much free time that I would be willing to spend on coding ST. Currently I am still low on free time, but I miss on programming already so I launched C++ Builder only to find out, that I am not able to compile my project any more... After some investigation and hard trying I found out that the problem is probably in WMP which I upgraded to version 10. As usual, there's no way of removing this evil from my machine once it's installed so I am considering creating new partition with WinXP and Builder just for coding. Keep your fingers crossed that I will be able to resolve this issue and will bring you new version of ST in the near future. Yo!

  10/22/2003 - Subtitles Translator Homepage moved  
   Because my freehosting at isn't so free recently (they're asking to donate 25 just because they upgraded servers and are promising that this should be one-time-only payment which doesn't sound too trustful) so I decided to move the homepage to my own page since forum and localization was running on the server already. This way everything should be in one place and should be easier to maintain.

  10/16/2003 - New version of Subtitles Translator - 1.67b

   There are new/old sections to the site - Features, where you'll find info on how the program looks and what it can do. Download, where you can download the newest version of Subtitles Translator as well as langpacks. Retro, where you'll find info how the program evolved in time and also older versions of Subtitles Translator. Localization will tell you everything you need to know for making langpack in your own language.
  04/01/2002 - Started work on new design  
   Ok, today's the day when I decided that the site for my program deserves a bit more fashionable and sophisticated look. So here we go, we'll see what comes out at the end.


Movie player with
subtitles support
