I don't know how things are in Europe, but in the USA the language for 
an audio track is normally garbage. They typically have two audio 
tracks, one labeled English and one labeled Spanish. The Spanish track 
has a low-quality copy of the English track, a descriptive audio track, 
or nothing. I have never found a case where it contains Spanish audio.
