Great! Thanks, Dmitry. But don’t do it if you think there’s not enough people in this community to justify it, though. I don’t want to waste TOM’s opportunities to get other sponsors!
So, here go a few options. I’ve only included those that support most formats. And sorry for such a boring post.
CaptionMaker/MacCaption by TeleStream has a desktop edition that starts at $1,720. The Pro is six times that. It includes timed text speech.
Online Captions & Subtitles Toolkit by Ooona Tools offers packages of separate services at lowish prices… per month. Any translator would need the full thing, at $162/month.
SubtitleNext starts at €430 (with VAT) for beginners, and goes up to €3,628 for the expert version (with a third option in the middle at €1,107).
Windows only (there’s iOS only too, but I believe you need Final Cut):
EZTitles might be the one that gets better publicity, but has the disadvantage of being windows only. It has purchase prices and rent prices. Basic option costs €1992.60 (with VAT) if payed once, or… well more than that if payed in 12/24/36 months. Rent starts at €98.40/month.
Spot Software has single price without 21% VAT (more expensive for European residents) is €1795.
TitleVision costs €2700, with an option of €675/year, where, I quote, “after six years’ leasing you own the program).
