Importing Into Anki 1.x (Legacy)

In How to Use subs2srs you should have learned how to use subs2srs to generate a tab-separated-value (.tsv) SRS import file and .media folder that can be used with Anki. All you need to do now is create a new Anki deck with the fields that you require:

  1. Expression
  2. Meaning
  3. Audio clip
  4. Snapshot
  5. Video Clip

You can either do this yourself, or you can use the Anki deck template that is packaged with subs2srs (it is named subs2srs_template_for_anki1.anki and is located in the Anki Deck Template folder).

Here is a simple guide demonstrating how to import the subs2srs generated files into Anki using the provided Anki deck template.

  1. Copy the Anki deck template (subs2srs_template_for_anki1.anki) into the output folder.

    Note: The above screenshot shows the old name for the template (subs2srs_template.anki).

  2. Rename the Anki deck template to match the .media folder.

  3. Double-click the newly renamed .anki file to open it. Then click on the File | Import menu option.

  4. Open the .tsv import file.

  5. In the Import dialog, you should map each part of the import file to an Anki field. In the case of this example, the format of the import file is tag, sequence marker, image, video clip, expression, and meaning. Now just click Import and you're done!

    Note: The first value in the import file is always the tag and the second value in the import file is always the sequence marker.
