Avid DVD by Sonic link subtitles to menu

I'm authoring a DVD with two subtitle languages and want to make the subtitles selectable from the menu. There are 8 movies on the DVD with options to play individually or play all. I can't find anything in the documentation to do this,
Guidance is appreciated!

Each menu item you add allows you to link to a title and specify the audio track and subtitle track to use.
So you can create multiple menu options for the same content.
But that's an ugle approach. I'd use a more featured authoring solution like Scenarist ( which we use) and use GPRMs to store a users subtile (or clean) choice and use that to enable or not the required subtitle. That way you have a seperate subtitle choice menu.
Using the Avid DVD you'd most likely create the subtitle choice menu first and from that step to one of 3 identical menuz to play the 8 titles hardcoded to enable the required subtitle or clean. Don't forget back buttons.
