How to Add Subtitles to Blu-ray Movies?

Actually, when we watch Blu-ray movies, there are usually several subtitles in different languages. But it is also very common that the subtitles in the Blu-ray movies may be not in our familiar languages. Or sometimes we need to add subtitles to Blu-ray movies so as to watch movies with ease. This post is centering on how to add SRT/ASS/SSA subtitles to Blu-ray movies so as to let you freely watch Blu-ray movies in familiar languages on various media players or portable devices like iPhone X/8, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, etc. Here will show the specific instructions.

I like to buy foreign movies on Blu-ray from their home countries. Aside from having original cover-art and sometimes being distributed by companies with a hand in production, there's no logical reason for this. The problem is that it seems like most of these don't have subtitles in English. I know only two years of highschool German and one semester of French. I don't think I will ever attempt Swedish. Is there a solution to this?
