Supported file formats and text encoding

Filename extension:


Text encoding:

Unicode (UTF-8, UTF-16 little-endian, UTF-16 big-endian).

Files must include the Unicode byte order mark (BOM).

To create subtitle script files with the correct encoding, use a text editor that can save Unicode files. The Notepad editor that comes with Windows can save files in all the supported encodings; Microsoft Word 97 and above can also save files as Unicode (UTF-16) text. Files saved in these applications always include the BOM. See these applications’ help for assistance in saving files in Unicode format.
