"I would like to buy foreign movies on Blu-ray from their home countries. The problem is that it seems like most of the foreign movies don't have subtitles in English. I know only two years of High-school German and one semester of French. I don't think I will ever attempt Swedish. Is there a solution to this? Will it be possible to replace the native language subtitle with an English one on the disc itself."
