Do you mean a time-coded file? Jul 3, 2009

You don't translate the time code. It is a series of numbers that might look like this:

There are 25 frames per second in the PAL video format (00 to 24).

A time-coded file can normally be translated in a standard text editor, but be careful that the text isn't too long for the line or for the time it will be visible.

If the extension of the file name isn't .txt, .rtf or .doc, then you should search for that file extension to find out which file format it is and what program you need to be able to edit it.
