Perl Script to convert Chinese Simplified to Traditional or Traditional to Simplified


Just finished watching a movie with Chinese subtitles. I’m more interested in practicing reading of traditional characters, so I found a Perl script that converts a file containing simplified Chinese characters and converts them to traditional. Works like a charm. Works from command line on my Darwin Linux. You’re probably thinking this can be done with a copy paste option, but command line is much more convenient, since it won’t affect the text layout, which sometimes happens with copy and paste commands. This command worked on a .srt subtitle file used for films. Give it a try if you want. Found this script on Sourceforge. Thanks VBenito!
