The instructions give below explain how this can be done:
Note: Before going further, ensure that you have already downloaded the correct subtitles for the media. Although you can search for them right from within UniConverter itself, you may have to manually browse through different websites if the default one doesn’t have the right, well-managed *.srt file for the clip.
Step 1 Import the video to UniConverter.
After launching Wondershare UniConverter, ensure that the Toolbox category is selected in the left pane, click the Subtitle Editor, and import the video you want to add the subtitles to.
Step 2 Import subtitles file.
Click and open the Subtitle menu from the right area of the imported file, click the Add, and select and import the subtitles file with SRT extension to the program.
Step 3 Define the nature of the captions.
Once the SRT file is added, you can either choose the Keep all subtitle track(s) radio button, or the one with the name of the file itself from under the Embed subtitle(s) section. While selecting the first option lets you enable or disable the captions during the video playback, the second one permanently burns the text to the media, and cannot be turned off while playing.
If you wish to go with the second option, you can click the Edit icon from the right of the SRT file name, and on the next window that opens up, select the text from the left section, edit its content from the Subtitle text box in the right, and even manage its display duration using the Start Time and End Time fields. You can also use the options under the Font section to change the font type, its size, color, and manage its attributes like bolding, italicizing, and underlining. The Transparency slider and the Position buttons allow you to define the text’s opacity and its position on the screen. Once everything is set up, you can click the OK to save the changes and get back to the previous window.
Step 4 Produce the video with subtitles.
Define a target video format and a destination folder using the Output Format and File Location options present at the bottom-left of the right window respectively. Next, click the Convert from the right of the media to add the subtitles to the video.
