An alternative name or title can be assigned on almost all omdb pages. This possibility exists for movies, series, people, companies, keywords and movie characters.
Alternative titles (movies, series)
Movie titles are usually adapted to the different language areas. As an alternative to the original title, other titles that were given to a movie can also be specified. On movie pages (movies, movie series, series, seasons and episodes) you will find an overview of alternative titles for this movie on the right-hand side at the bottom.
Clicking on “edit” opens a window where you can now specify the desired local or alternative title. Please select the appropriate language and confirm with “OK”.
Other titles can easily be removed by pressing the “Edit” button in the title overview and then “Current names” in the new window. All other titles that have been created are displayed here. With a click on “delete” you can remove the unwanted titles.
Also known as… (Persons)
There are often several names for one and the same person. Some people have adopted a stage name, others have become known by an abbreviation, and still others simply have multiple first names or surnames in reality.
On person pages you will find an overview of the different names of a person on the right-hand side. Clicking on “edit” opens a new window in which you can now enter the name or names by which a person is also known.
Synonyms (company, plot keywords, characters)
Synonymous names can be created for all companies, keywords and characters. Sometimes it can happen that a genre is known by several names (e.g. the genre “retro SF” is synonymous with “retro futurisms” or “retro science fiction”). The function of synonyms is that no pages have to be created twice, but e.g. categories that mean similar things can be combined under one page.
On one of the above-mentioned pages you will find an overview of all synonyms on the right-hand side. Clicking on “edit” opens a window where you can now enter the desired synonym. Please select the appropriate language and confirm with “OK”.
Synonyms can be easily removed by clicking on the “Edit” button in the overview and then on “Current names” in the new window. All synonyms that have been created are displayed here. With a click on “delete” you can remove the unwanted synonym.
