I was trying to record French language shows a little while back and could not find real solution. I am in the US and use SchedulesDirect, I ended up with a custom rule searching for recordings that are subtitled, and manually clicking do not record to remove the ones in languages other than French.
This is far from optimal, but I could not find any better solution.
Of course that would exclude any shows on an actual French (or in yourcase Spanish) language channel since they would not be subtitled.
