Hi, I thought of an idea for voice acting dubbing credits of non English voices, (imdb may or may not do this but it worth a try of asking) :o)

Imdb could make a drop-down section (like how there are acting/director/writing/producer sections for voice acting dubbing credits for like movies and Anime and TV shows for Non English voice actors (like such as French, German, Italian, Japanese etc.)

Then they wouldn't be all cluttered under the 'Other Work' section and it would be more organized.

It was just some thing I thought of that maybe imdb would be interested in doing :)

IMDb really should create a proper place for dubbers. Unfortunately, I wouldn't hold my breath for it. I first asked about this in 2003 (!) and it still hasn't happened....

I believe IMDB only adds dubbing credits for the original and/or English speaking voices. So French/German/Italian/etc voice credits for e.g. "Cars" or "The Simpsons" are not accepted.

well i (and im sure other do too) dislike the way the foreign credits are all clumped together in the 'Other works' section.

Totally agree. Sometimes here in Spain we had movie actors that do dubbing roles in 3D animated movies, and I can add them on the cast list. :(

I believe IMDb has to draw the line somewhere.  Can you imagine how IMDb page for (e.g.) "Cars" would look like with 20 additional dub credits? I mean if they accept Spanish voice actors, then they should accept German, Italian, Swedish, Japanese etc etc. The list is endless with animation titles.

So? It's worth it and they are voice actors too and deserve the recognition ;)

In some non-american animated films you can see the english dubbing actors the first in the list, dispite they are not part of the original version. It happens in a lot of Miyazaki movies.

Or imdb could just let the users add them to the main cast section like:

voice: Chinese dub

voice: Korean dub

voice: German dub

voice: Spanish dub
