Add Language identifiers to multiple sub files in a folder

Postby Ronstang » Mon May 24, 2021 2:38 am

My output folder from MKV conversions contains subs for all files but they are missing language identifiers, and some files have multiple subs of different languages. So the subs are labeled as follows:

Movie Name.srt
Movie Name0.srt

Where there first sub is always English and the second sub, if present is always Spanish.

I would like the files to be named as follows:

Movie Name.Eng.srt
Movie Name.Spa.srt

Is there a way to do this with one operation for all files present in a folder?

Thank You
Ronstang

Renaming Options, File/Folder Extensions, (enable) Rename File Extensions As Part Being Part of Filename

Select all your 0.srt files first

3:Replace
Code: Select all
Replace:  0.srt
With:  .Spa.srt

Then select your (not)Spa.srt files

3:Replace
Code: Select all
Replace:  .srt
With:  .Eng.srt

Thank you, but I am missing something because I tried that several different ways and nothing happened at all.

Thanks so much....that did it. I did not understand that at first until I realized it was an option up on the top task bar menu. :D :D
