I am having a new problem with MKVToolnix and subtitles.



Whenever I add one of these subtitles to any of these Matroskas MKVTOOLNIX disregard my advice to tell all of them are english, and somehow interprets the "de" among the words means it should be german.

There's just one problem here, the words "de" are part of "cor-de-rosa" which means "pink color" in portuguese.

The mistake MKVToolnix is making would be similar to telling me this:

The Adventures.mkv
The Adventures.srt

Would result in this:

Since this is a primary mistake I need to disable this for good. Whatever language I said the program to assume it is (in this case english) needs to be the one attributed to ALL subtitles. No matter what.

You can configure the languages the GUI tries to find in the file name in the preferences ("Multiplexer" → "Deriving track languages"). Just remove all languages safe for those you usually use.

If you don't want dashes to be recognized as valid separators for words for the purpose of deriving track languages, you can simply remove the dash from the list of boundary characters there, too.

Or simply deactivate that feature altogether, again at the same place.
Latest MKVToolNix is v56.1.0

If I ever ask you to upload something, please use my file server.
