1) I opened a .srt file in Notepad. 2) Copied, pasted entire contents to Google language tool box. 3) Translated entire contents to another language, English in this case. 4) Copied and pasted entire translated contents to a brand new file in Notepad. 5) Saved as .txt file, ANSI coding, 6) Saved another copy as .srt file, ANSI coding. 7) None of them, (5) or (6), works as a subtitle file with the provided .avi file. Can someone tell me what I did are simply unorthodox. Or perhaps, which steps is wrong or missing. Thanks so much. I have no luck trying to watch some foreign movies.
