Translate Video Subtitles

subtrs is a simple tool that translates subtitles from files.

So I decided to create this simple tool and translate my subtitles more successfully.



$ pip3 install subtrs --upgrade

[en] << Are you sure this line is clean?

[zh-cn] >> 你确定这条线是干净的吗?

[en] << Yeah, of course I'm sure.

[zh-cn] >> 是的,我当然确定。

[en] << I better go.

[zh-cn] >> 我最好去。

[en] << - Freeze! Police!

[en] << - Hands on your head!

[zh-cn] >> - 把手放在你的头上!
