    Basically, soft subtitles are subtitles that are not IN the actually video and are more of an overlay onto the video online. (If you downloaded it, the subtitles would not go along with it, it would be the raw.)

    Conversely, hard subtitles are rendered into the actual video and if you downloaded that, the subtitles would come along with it since its laced into the video. (A raw is taken, words are put in it, then it is exported.)

    I THINK it means that they are a few subtitles to choose from.. I saw that term on Crunchyroll before, when they had two subtitles to choose from. And I didn't see it there when there was only one subtitle available, so yeah..
