Handbrake is not recommended for rip subtitles.
Your subtitles may exit hardsub using this feature.
my recommendation is:
1- download makemkv and make a remux of your dvd.
2- use mkvtoolnix to extract the subtitle from remux.
3- now use subtitleedit to convert the subtitle to the format you like (.ass, srt, any).
4- Finally, use mkvtoolnix to merge your subtitle with the video.
works well for me.
Thank you for your two different suggestions. I will try them. I'm NOT SURE THOSE WILL WORK FOR MAC, though

@mirella martinelli It would have been very nice it you mentioned that in your post..
It can be done with handbrake, although i don't know if the mac version is the same as Linux.
I you load the movie in handbrake go to the subtitle tab and click add all. select the sub you want and click edit(pencil icon)
select the sub you want and choose burn in or not (thats hardcoded) or select set default
Subs should now in the output file, depending on mkv or mp4 the output can be different
experiment with it
For MAC try MKVTools ($6.00)BeyonWiz T3 PVR ~ Popcorn A-500 ~ Samsung ES8000 65" LED TV ~ Windows 7 64bit ~ Yamaha RX-A1070 ~ QnapTS851-4G
Note: even if you manage to successfully put dvd subs into the mp4 container your player might not support this. In that case burning-in will help.
