Even if they do I think it's a lot better to at least try learn the basics yourself. Look up some translated lyrics for music you like and try timing the music videos with something like Aegisub.

Thank you very much for the videos xaxa.
I've tried a little timing beginning using Subtitles Workshop, a little bit tedious work.
Having the video and subtitle (that's being worked on) open in MPC and editing in Subtitles Workshop.

I have a little problem with Aegisub though.
I have a video that I choose "Open with Aegisub", then I choose to load the subtitle that I'm working on from the at the moment from the "File" menu.
I can view the video and subtitle but have no sound.
Video format: AVI, Audio format: MPEG Layer-3
Version of Aegisub: 2.1.8

Go to the Audio menu, and choose Open Audio from Video.
