I have a movie that is split into two parts. Each part has it's own SRT file for subtitles. I want to join the movie into one whole part and keep the subs. Is there any way to re-join the seperated subtitle files. I don't want to open the SRT and change 400 lines of time codes.
PS. I don't want to hard encode the subs. I want to use the SRT files in DVD Lab Pro so that they are selectable.

"Can You Dig It!"
Yesss! I found the answer. Just in case this question comes up again, here goes...
1) Open Subtitle Workshop.
2) Go to Tools --> Join Subtitles
3) When the new window opens click the ADD button to add your SRT files. Set the frames per second (FPS) of your M2V, AVI, etc.
4) Click JOIN, name your file, and click OK.
5) DONE!!!"Can You Dig It!"

So many times when someone finds a solution they just say "never mind I found it" which is of no use to anyone else who reads the thread later on and is looking for an answer.
The way you did it is the way it should always be done.
Thanks, but now I have run into another problem. My subs are 8 seconds out of sync when the movie gets to where I joined the two files. Anyone have some suggestions? I have Subtitle Workshop and Subresync, but I can't find any user guides to show how to do this."Can You Dig It!"
I had a major headache this same issue (merging subs). Everytime i loaded the new joined srt file into dvd lab pro. I got all these erros about time overlapping & etc. I then realized when merging with subtitle workshop i had to check the recalculate time box. Duh i'm such a idiot oh well maybe my dilema will help you or anybody else when merging subs.
Thanks for the tips. I managed to join the two .srt file together but some minor adjustments in the timing is still required. Thanks anyway.
Judewang - please don't dig up old threads to add to them. It's good that you were helped, but really we would prefer that you didn't post in a thread that was almost 6 years old. If all you have to say is "I agree", or "This helped me" and the thread is more than about 6 months old, we'd really prefer that you don't post to it.
Try Subscene.com & find new subs for your film. Free.
This post lead me to my solution, so I thought I would reply with how I resolved my issue. I started with 2 srt files.
1. Using VobSubs Subresync I opened each file and resaved them as .sub files.
2. Using vobsubs SubJoiner I joined the two recently created sub files which outputs a single .sub / .idx file
end of story.
This may be an old thread, but as of 16 March 2014 it's still the top Google result if you're looking to concatentate .srt files.
I am happy to report that Subtitle Workshop 2.51 works a treat. No troubles installing on Windows 8, and the link provided by ronmaz is still live, even though it's an older version:Subshifter to time-adjust my subtitles and started to append one file to the end of the other when I realised the line numbers would start over in the middle (twice, as I was joining three .srt's). I only used the Tools > Join subtitles function of Subtitle Workshop, but I can tell you it was super-fast and super-easy.
I found this thread more than relevant--as would anyone looking for a dead-simple, lightweight solution.
Combining two SRTs is a matter of copying and pasting and then saving the file in Notepad, you don't need a special tool for it. If you're worried about the index numbers of each sub not properly following then open the new combined SRT you saved with SubtitleTool.exe and save it again.
If the timings of the subs need to be adjusted then a tool is mandatory. SubtitleTool has no advanced graphical interface with a waveform, other tools do.
