Spot 6: Three years in the making, but worth the wait

It's been a long time coming, but it's finally here.
Back in the autumn of 2012, Spot was approached by one of the world's
most renowned localisation companies to add several custom features to Spot 5. By Christmas 2012, we were ready to release this new version as Spot 5.2., but we weren't satisfied. For more than 30 months, we looked at ways in which we could improve Spot, not only for individual freelancers but also for global subtitling houses employing dozens of subtitlers - ways to create, edit and time subtitle files more quickly, to reformat and QC files faster and with greater accuracy than ever before.
Nearly three years later, we believe we have created the best ever version of our Spot Subtitling System. Try it for yourself and we'll sure you'll agree.
