Are you planning to type the subtitles yourselve or rip them from a DVD? – Ivo Flipse Sep 29 '09 at 20:59

To make subtitles I recommend Subtitle Workshop. You can try the version 4 beta although I don't miss anything in version 2.51.

I have also heard good things about Aegisub.

Search for a program called Subrip. It's a bit old, but still works.
