Subtitle is more like a transcript of any dialog or let me say, a seen commentary in films, video games, television programs or any other video. Normally, subtitle is displayed at the bottom of the video or shown at the top screen of the video (only if another text is displayed at the bottom.
The reason we make use of subtitles is to get a written translation of a dialog in a foreign language, sometimes same language, so as viewers can easily understand such dialog. Of course, you can’t get a full understanding of a dialog but with the help of subtitles, there are better understandings.
