Part 2: How Do I Convert SRT to PDF?

So, you've got your subtitles in SRT format, but what next? How do you get them from an SRT file to PDF?

The tools below are all easy to use, and they'll make short work of downloading your subtitles in PDF format.

1. Ebby.co

While Ebby is primarily an automated transcription service, it also offers a conversion tool that allows you to convert SRT to PDF free online.

  1. Open the Ebby website and locate 'subtitle tools' on the menu at the bottom.
  2. Choose 'Convert SubRip'.
  1. Click in the upload box and browse to locate your SRT file.
  2. Select 'PDF' as the output format.
  3. Click the 'Convert SRT' button and wait for Ebby to automatically download the converted file.

There's limited information on the Ebby website about the conversion process, so it's not clear how large a file the service can cope with. The conversion tool here is a courtesy add-on to Ebby's main transcription service, which you can try for free.

2. Happy Scribe

Another free SRT to PDF converter online is Happy Scribe. This tool works similarly to Ebby, you simply upload your file to their website and let it take care of the rest.

  1. Open the Happy Scribe website and go to Free Tools > Subtitle Tools at the bottom of the homepage.
  2. From here, choose the Subtitle Converter.
  3. Now, upload your SRT subtitle file. (Happy Scribe can also work with VTT files if needed).
  1. Choose the desired output format.
  2. Click 'Convert Subtitles' and allow a few minutes for the video to be uploaded to the Happy Scribe server and then converted.
  3. Download the finished file.

Again, Happy Scribe is mainly an audio and video transcription service, with the conversion tool as an addition. There's no mention of a file size limit for this free service. It's worth noting that the output PDF will not be formatted, so you'll likely have some work to do to make it usable.


We've looked at VEED before, as part of our article on AI Video Generation. It's also useful for our purposes today because it has a subtitle conversion tool.

  1. Open the Tools section on VEED's website.
  2. Choose the Subtitle Converter, and click Convert Subtitle File.
  3. Click 'Choose Subtitle File' and then upload your SRT file to VEED.
  1. Go to Options > PDF.
  2. Click the download button and allow VEED to download your subtitles as a PDF.

VEED is worth looking into if you make a lot of video content, and they have other services beyond SRT file to PDF conversion. As always when working with online tools, you should do your due diligence, particularly when dealing with sensitive information.

4. Flixier

Flixier is another online video editor, and, like VEED, it also has a conversion tool tucked away.

  1. Open the Flixier homepage and go to Tools > Subtitle Converter > SRT to PDF Converter.
  2. Click 'Get Started' and upload your SRT file.
  3. Use Flixier's editing tool to edit your subtitles as needed.
  4. Select 'PDF' from the dropdown list in the Subtitle tab.
  5. Click Export, and wait for your file to be downloaded.

Flixier isn't a dedicated converter, but it is still a user-friendly option for people who want to know how to download subtitles in PDF format. Since it's a video editing tool with a lot of other features, it might not be the best choice for a simple conversion process.

5. MConverter

If you need to batch convert SRT, then MConverter might be the best fit. It's just as quick and easy as the other tools, and also has the facility to upload multiple files at once. The drawback is that it's not able to convert SRT to PDF. It can, however, convert SRT to TXT, and you can then use another tool to convert TXT to PDF.

  1. Open the MConverter homepage and select SRT in the 'Convert From' list of tools.
  2. Drag and drop your SRT file into the converter, or browse to locate it.
  1. Once the file has been uploaded, choose PDF as the output format and click 'Start'.
  2. Hit the download button if your file isn't automatically downloaded.

With the free version of MConverter, you can only convert files up to 100 MB. To go beyond that, you'll need either MConverter Plus or Pro, which allow you to convert files up to 1 or 2 GB respectively.

Part 3: Editing Subtitles and Managing Your PDF

There, that wasn't too challenging, was it?

You've got your subtitles downloaded in PDF format, and it only took a minute or two. The trouble is, subtitles are rarely completely accurate. People are generally forgiving of the odd mistake or two in a captioned video, but if you want to use those subtitles to create a transcript or other content based on the video, you'll need to do some editing.

UPDF works beautifully for this. Simply open your PDF in UPDF, and you'll be able to edit all aspects of the text, both for content and formatting. Use it to transform those scrappy subtitles into a polished transcript to post on your website along with the video, and reap the SEO benefits of the text content as well as easy sharing of video content.

UPDF doesn't just let you edit PDFs. It's an all-round PDF management tool that you'll soon come to rely on.

UPDF has plenty to offer everyone who regularly works with PDFs. Here are some of the features likely to be of particular use to you as a video content creator:

  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR): If your video planning and scripting process involves physical documents or research materials, use UPDF to turn scanned images into editable text. Then you can organize your notes more effectively, and copy and paste with ease.
  • Editing and Annotation: With UPDF you can add comments, highlights, and virtual sticky notes to PDFs. You can also edit all aspects of the document, adding and removing elements such as images and text boxes as needed. Add ideas or timestamps to scripts and storyboards, and share ideas and reminders with collaborators.
  • Organizing PDFs: You can rearrange pages however you like with UPDF, and add or remove pages as needed. This is perfect for that messy stage of scripting, where you might want to move whole sections around.
  • PDF Compression: If you need to share large script files or documents with clients and collaborators, then UPDF's compression tool will be useful. Shrink the file size without compromising on quality, and make files easier to share and less expensive to store.
  • Multi-Platform: One license, any platform. UPDF works seamlessly across Mac, iOS, Windows and Android, and you only pay once for the license. This makes it convenient to work wherever you are.
