just do what we told you already. Install 
http://packs.matroska.org/packs/Matroska_Pack_Full_v1.1.0.beta.exe and 
report back to us. Its IMPOSSIBLE that both languages play at the same 
time, if you install this new pack. Forget converting the file to a DVD, 
you obviously neither have the knowledge nor the feeling of what would 
be necessary to achieve that, as its a very complicated task. In other 
words, matroska container was NOT INVENTED to allow easy converting of 
the files  into DVDs, as matroska can hold streams that can not be put 
into a DVD. Your goal should be to play the file as is, without 
extraction of streams.

Other hints :
- forget VirtualdubMod for MKV handling, this tool is abandoned and outdated
- i don't believe Zoomplayer will not be able to play the MKV file, if 
TCMP can play it. IMO you are simply giving us wrong info here, for 
whatever reason
- if TCMP can not render the file, you won't hear or see anything
- if Realplayer is installed, you will be able to play MKV files with 
realvideo content ( we rape its decoder ), but this doesnt mean 
Realplayer should be used to play MKV files ( it cant, and won't ever be 
able to )
- once you demux the MKV files into its components ( rmvb video, aac 
audio, ssa subtitles ) of course you can't watch the video fully with 
everything. After all, matroska was invented and is being used by so 
many people because there is no other container on this planet allowing 
to play a video files with these component tracks ;) .....
