For subtitles that do not require synchronization, load the file to ESS, repair them (see Synchronization tools, repair) and finally save with a proper filename and encoding type.
For subtitles that require synchronization, load the file to ESS, and try to synchronize them using “Adjust” tool. If the tool ‘Adjust’ fail to synchronize, try the “Manual Synch” tool. Finally repair them and save with a proper filename and encoding type.
