-h, --help
Show command line options.
Show version number.
-e, --encoding=ENCODING

List possible character encodings to use with --encoding.
Go to subtitle number NUM in the opened file. If NUM is missing go to the last subtitle.
-t, --translation-file=FILE
Open translation file.
-a, --align-method=METHOD
Method used to align translation file's subtitle texts with main document's subtitles. Possible values are 'number' and 'position'. The default is 'position', which compares the positions in the main document and the translation file and inserts the translation texts so that those positions match. Existing subtitles are skipped and new ones inserted as needed. 'number' discards position information and inserts the N translation texts into the first N subtitles.
-v, --video-file=FILE
Select video file.
