If you
1.Download a SRT of English version.
2.Open it by Notepad on Windows XP.
3.Translate ONLY the TEXT to another language without making any changes on time stamps.
4.Upload the translated SRT back as appropriate language version.
5.Download the SRT of translated version again.
Original Time After Uploading
00:00:02,002 00:00:02,000
00:00:04,094 00:00:04,009
00:00:07,039 00:00:07,003
... 00:00:38,010 00:00:38,000
... It seems that all time stamps have been multiplied by 0.1 and then truncated.
Although it's hard to tell ,002 from ,000, but on subtitle pages of individual language version where the time stamps have been rounded to seconds, the problem comes out much obviously.

Looking forward to hear from you~

The zip archive attached contains two SRTs.
An English version downloaded.
And the Chinese version downloaded after uploading.
