    Perhaps you could try to open it in notepad, file -> save as, choose UTF-8 in encoding and press "Save"

  8. It is not sufficient to have your computer set to Greek, you need to set other language options when subtitling, in your editor, as well.


    I work in subtitle translations and I would recommend for any other language that is not English to be saved in the file you use for subtitled (either srt or txt) with UTF 8 pref. UNICODE encoding. Translation and readability of languages other than English require special ANSI codes, if you choose to go with ANSI encoding, and it is a bit more complicated option.

    You can easily do an UTF8/UNICODE encoding by selecting the encoding when you save the file (under the file name field, there is a field for encoding). Using Notepad++ when you write your subtitled makes this apparently easier by pressing a button which gives you all the encoding options. I found it easier to use the simple save as... encoded as.. system.
