The subtitle is a written form for dialogues in a video. It uses written description to explain what is happening in the video, so that viewers who have difficulty in hearing or who are unfamiliar with foreign languages better understand the video content. Thus, subtitling videos is a matter of cardinal significance.
Generally, adding subtitles to video requires a video editor. If what you want is to insert captions to a web video like Vimeo, YouTube, etc, except for an extra editor, you could have it done by these web video platforms as well. How is this accomplished? This tutorial takes Vimeo as an instance to describe how to add subtitles on Vimeo whether the Vimeo video is before or after uploading.
