B3S SubTranslator Help – 3. File issues

HelpI see that there are users that apparently can’t open any files in the B3S SubTranslator application. If that’s the case, it can only be because:

  • File format is not supported by the application
  • File format is supported, but has errors

3.1. Supported file formats

In the latest version (0.5.9.8.B) only 4 subtitle formats are supported.

  • MicroDVD{0}{10}Hello|My name a Subtitle.
  • SubRip1
    00:00:20,000 –> 00:00:24,400
    Hello.
    My name a Subtitle .
  • SubViewer00:00:07.00,00:00:11.91
    Hello[br]My name a Subtitle.
  • MPlayer2[0][10]Hello|My name a Subtitle.

3.2. Unsupported formats

ErrorAll other formats cannot (yet) be read from B3S SubTranslator. If you try to load a subtitle of unsupported format, you will get an error message:

  • Error loading file
  • SubTitle file format is not recognized.

3.3. Issues with supported file formats

Any “Error loading file” error message other than the previously described is usually related to an error in the subtitle file itself. B3S SubTranslator application strictly obeys the file format specification. If there is an extra “new line character” (CRLF) or an extra “empty space character” in the wrong place, B3S SubTranslator will report an error, and will fail to load the file. For it to be “softer” to subtitle errors, you should wait (a lot) until I modify the file loading modules.

My recommendation would be to use SubTitle Workshop (or something similar) to fix any errors before using the B3S SubTranslator.
