Convert captions/subtitles from SUB to SSA

SSA (SubStation Alpha) is utilized to handle, disseminate, and transfer a wide array of subtitle content in a distinct subtitle format. XML (eXtensible Markup Language), on the contrary, is an easy-to-understand language that arranges and structures documents that contain both time and text specifics. Occasionally, it may be necessary to convert SSA files, generated by particular proprietary software, into XML files for compatibility across multiple platforms. Here’s a detailed guide on how to transform SSA to XML using our Caption Subtitle Converter.

Step 1: Go to the Captions/Subtitles Converter

Step 2: Set conversion settings

Scroll down to the Convert To section. In the Select format dropdown menu, select “.ssa” For the “Character Encoding” option, most users can just leave it as “UTF-8” unless your SUB file uses a different type of encoding.

Step 3: Choose SUB file

Navigate to the Convert From section and click on the “Browse” button. In the pop-up dialog, find and select the SUB file that you want to convert. After you select the SUB file, click on the “Open” button.
