I have a friend who does not understand English, and he wants to watch 24. I downloaded it for him, but while the English subtitles are perfect, some Arabic subtitles are not synchronized correctly.

(The encoding is wrong so the letters are displayed like that but that's not important, the video player reads them correctly.)
So what I'm looking for is gratis software that works on Xubuntu 14.04 64-bit (Wine is fine), that would allow me to easily synchronize the Arabic subtitles based on the English subtitles, edit it when I have to and read the encoding correctly.
What I mean by synchronizing is just copying the time section from a file to another. I also need to be able to compare between 2 files to see if they match. Any other feature is a plus.
