DVD/Movie subtitles are textual versions of the dialog or scene in DVD film videos displayed at the bottom of the screen, to have viewers understand the spoken dialogue or the signs better. And a commercial DVD disc always has several different built-in subtitle tracks. Forced Subtitle appears on screen when a foreign/alien language is spoken, or showed in a sign, location, or other text, aiming to explain the meaning but can not be placed in the dubbing.

If you don't want the whole movie to have subtitles, but just keep the forced subtitles only when ripping a DVD, you've come to the right place. This article aims to provide you an easy solution to rip DVD with translated forced subtitles on screen where a different language is being spoken.
