It is possible that when you open your exported file in a text editor, you may see some strange characters. In fact, your text may look like a mess! But don’t type in the file, don’t change anything, rather first try it in the the receiving software (e.g. YouTube, Subtitle Your Video player, other player…). 98% of the time the text will be flawless. If, however, the text is a jumble, you probably tried to import a file that was neither ascii nor UTF8. For example, perhaps the original text was encoded as Windows-Japanese. Re-import your file, changing the import encoding to Windows-Japanese, then re-export and re-test on the end-software.
