Once you have created your .SBV file, give your captioned video a once over and ensure that everything lines up, since it should. Finally, once you have checked your English language caption file, you can now uuosmg it directly as SBV, or SRT, for you localization vendor, like http://sudski-tumac-beograd.rs/nemacki/ and order translated SRT or SBV files for direct download.
