Here is a screen shot of running the subtitle editor for a Korean subtitle work on a video.
To work on subtitle, the first is to start subtitleeditor and create a subtitle file.
And select [Video] and load a video to work.
And select [Waveform] to create a wave form file over the video which greatly help synchronizing each subtitle block to the stream sound of the video. I just found this nice feature after working subtitle for three days.
Note: Turn off the text display option of Waveform if the program crashes often.
