Subtitles in Premiere Pro

I am stuck: I need to make a Digibeta tape with english subtitles of my movie.

What I have is a subtitle-textfile with timecodes from Subtitle Workshop (which I can easily import into Encore - what I cannot do is export the subtitle-timeline)

For the digibeta playout I need to go via Premiere, so the question is: How do I get the subtitles into Premiere without a lot of handwork (=retyping & lipsynching them by hand)?

Any thoughts or workarounds?

Cheers, Peter

PS: That's the movie I am talking about:

Can you render out a video of the subtitles on a solid (or transparent) background, and then superimpose that video file in premiere?

I know nothing about Subtitle Workshop or Encore, but I'm pretty good at "workarounds"...

you just make a new avi with the subtitles overlay and you play it from premiere for export.
export your movie from premiere to an avi cmopatible with virtualdub (huffyuv?), subtitle into virtualdub, reimport into premiere, export to you camera.
virtualdub is able to overlay the subtitles with a plugin ( look at vobsub 2.23) using the subtitle workshop file (or some version you can export from).
usually i use .sub (microDVD format).

another way would be to created the subtitle pictures (using MaestroSBT, in find a way to place into premiere with timecode (there must be a way)
