What happens to my Trint after I export?


After you export, you will still be able to see your transcript. You can also continue to edit and make changes to your Trint. There is no limit to how many exports you download.

How do I export?

Exporting your edited file on Trint is easy!

Simply open the file in the editor and click on the yellow Export button in the top right hand corner. You can then choose the relevant format and whether you want to export a) the entire document or b) just the highlights.

File Types

Trint exports into the following formats:

  • SubRip (SRT)
  • Web Video Text Tracks (VTT)
  • Word Document (DOC)
  • Edit Decision List (EDL)
  • Interactive Transcript (HTML)
  • Avid DS Subtitles (TXT)
  • Spruce STL Subtitles (STL)
  • Project (XML)
  • Comma-Separated Values File (CSV)

SRT and VTT: used in captioning

EDL files: used in video editing

DOC files: used for text editing

Interactive Transcripts: downloads a rudimentary version of a Trint that you can play on your browser

Options for Exporting Captions (SRT and VTT)

Caption Length

You can change the default length of your subtitles by moving the slider to the left or right.
For more direct control, you can set subtitles to match the paragraphs of your Trint.

Speaker Names

You can toggle speaker names on and off by checking the box shown below. Remember, you must manually insert speaker names into your Trint for them to show up in your exports.

You can also customize how speaker names are displayed by having them inserted to the left of the subtitle or above it. You can also choose to input the names in all uppercase letters (CONNOR) or as entered in your Trint (Connor).

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at support@trint.com.

Can I Export multiple files at the same time?

Yes, you can do this from your Trints page. Select the files you want and click Export in the menu bar at the top of the page.

My export disappeared

Trint does not erase your files after you export, so if you can't find your files, you should check your Trints page thoroughly before contacting support@trint.com. If you have folders on your Trints page, it could be that this file has been accidentally moved into one.
