Hi, Stella.. try this:
1) You need this soft: Subtitle Edit 2.9.1 (or.. similar)
2) Open the sub with Subtitle Edit, and over the left you'll see ''Subtitle Format'' now, you need to change the file extension from original >(.srt) to >(.ssa)
3) Go to ''Subtitle Format'' and change: (ANSI - 1252) to > (UTF-8) ..and (up) change: (SubRip (.srt)) to > (Sub Station Alpha (.ssa))
4) Go to 'File' and 'Save as...' you'll see the new extension (.ssa) Done!
Note: The new sub format will change the font, and colours font (white - black shadow) but now you'll able to see the special symbols of your own language (hope so) ..it's work for me on my own, Spanish.
Note 2: If you see this symbols <i> and.. </i> on your screen: Open the subs again, and (press CTRL+h), ''Replace'' 'Find what' <i> 'Replace with' (nothing.. leave it empty) ..and click 'Replace all' ..Repeat the procedure with </i> ..Done!
