I created this website as an alternative to konwerternapisow.pl which went down sometime this week (today is 11/10/2015). I used it almost every day to convert subtitles from txt to srt and decided to create an alternative for myself, and anyone else who also found it helpful.
If you find any bugs or have some suggestions on how to improve this converter feel free to contact me on Twitter @drecken. I'm writing the code from scratch and will fix any bugs I can find. With time I hope to add support for more formats or anything else that will be requested.
Convert your txt subtitles to srt online, for free! Enjoy!

12/20/2015 - Encoding is now optional. All subtitles with a format that could not have been determined will be emailed to me and examined to improve the converter and support those formats in the future.
