This support guide will cover:

How to download the plugin

Trint’s free Adobe Premiere plugin can be downloaded from Adobe Exchange.

Once downloaded, open your Adobe Premiere project and click “Window” > “Extensions” > “Trint”.

If this is your first time using the plugin, you will be asked to sign in to your Trint account. Enter your email and password, then click “Login”. If you haven’t used Trint before you can sign up by clicking the link on the page.

Transcribing in Adobe Premiere

Click on the “Editing” category from the Adobe Premiere navigation bar and then select “Trint”.

From here you can upload audio files by either dragging and dropping into the light grey box or clicking “Select files” and browsing your computer.

After an upload starts, you can choose the language for the transcription and also if you want to use words from your Trint custom dictionary. Once your file has been uploaded, click the yellow “Transcribe” button.

File status symbols

Every file that you transcribe in Adobe Premiere will be listed in your “Recent Trints” and have a status to indicate how the file can be used:

  • READY means your transcription is complete

  • RECEIVED means a transcript has been shared with you from another Trint account

  • EDITED means a transcript has been edited in the web-based Trint Editor

  • LOCKED means the file cannot be accessed until you contact us at

Export a Trint from Adobe Premiere

To export a transcript from Trint into your media file, click the export icon to the right of the file.

An upload window will then appear giving you two formatting options – SRT which is a full export of your transcript and EDL which only exports highlighted portions of a transcript.
