Editing Subtitles in .mkv Files

Basically, there are some rather jarring errors in some of the subbed files I have, but everything else like the timing and style is okay. I'd like to know if there's a simple method to just go into the .mkv container and edit the text without touching the timing and stylized font.

I figure I'll have to demux, edit and then remux, but I'm not 100% on the method.

Many thanks in advance.

Yes, that's pretty much it.

Download MKVToolNix v3.4.0 (#), followed by MKVExtractGUI. Extract the first download, and extract MKVExtractGUI2.exe from the second archive, and place that file into the install directory for the MKVToolNix, where you'll find mkvextract.exe & mmg.exe (MKVMerge).

Run the GUI tool for MKVExtract, drag/drop your .mkv file onto it, and tick the subtitle track you want to extract. Edit it, and then run MKVMerge. Drag your .mkv file onto that, along with your edited subtitle file, untick the old one, and tick the new subtitles, give it a track name, and set the language up. Then click the start muxing button.

#: I suggest v3.4.0 because it's the last version that'll set the English language track attribute specifically. In version 4+ MKV Merge won't write default values to .mkv files, and English is the default language value if none is present on a track. If you're using a video player that understands this then you can download the latest version of MKVToolNix . On a secondary note, in the unlikely event you ever want to mux a .mkv which contains DTS-HD: Master Audio, then you'll need to use v4.4+ of MKVToolNix.
