Import a translation as well as a transcription

I am processing some videos from youtube, these videos already have a transcription and translation and I want to put them in SayMore for various reasons.

I can change the srt files from youtube into audacity label files and I can import the audacity label file into SayMore as the transcription, but how can I import an additional audacity label file for the translation column? There doesn’t appear to be a way to do that.

Someone else might have a better idea, but as far as I can tell, there isn’t a way to import Audacity files for translation.

SayMore uses .eaf (ELAN) format.


It doesn’t understand just any ELAN file, but rather one that has the tiers it creates. You could then get your srt files into that format, then import it:


For details on the format that SayMore expects, see the documentation under “ELAN”. You can also let it create an .eaf file, and then look at that in a text editor.

I hope that’s helpful. I’m sorry we don’t have the import you’re looking for.
