is there an way to do this thing to add subtitles to my video in hitfilm 4 express
Depends on what you mean. Of you want subtitles that are toggled off and on on a DVD or Blu ray you'll need to do subtitles in your disc encoding software. If you want subtitles toggled on a YouTube page, you'll need to do that on YouTube.
If you just want text burned into your image then you're making a Composite Shot for every line and building a lot of text layers.
I request you to add another feature in Hitfilm 5 or in an update as adding subtitles is a really painful task and requires lots of patience
I wished HITFILM 2017 will have a way. Running into the compositor every now n then for everything isn't easy.
Especially text which is just so basic.
Have to create separate composite shots for so many text lines. It really is a job of patience. I so hoped they had text templates inbuilt this time. Just changing the text would be so much easier. But if we copy and paste change the original composite shot changes. Have to duplicate each text layer. Also in tremedous hurry as creating subtitlea for an hour of work, not renaming each text while duplicating can just nearly kill you.

If you're doing a lot of subtitling or captions that frequently use the same fonts and font sizes, try this:
The setup of the initial template will take the longest time. Once you've got your template comp made/imported, duplicating it, changing its name, and editing its contents take just a few seconds.
THANK YOU @jsbarrett
Edit: This works super well. It has saved me so much time!
