Add Text Strip
See the strip properties for "Effect Strip" will be:
The Horizontal and Vertical properties look like they should control the positioning of the Text but they don't, they control the pivot point of the Text object.
The alignment of the text is always left and there's no way to change it but a better way would be to have a new property...
Alignment: Center | Left | Right | Justified
