We're pleased to announce a simplification to the contribution guidelines for alternate titles.

We recently upgraded our systems so that the following attributes are no longer needed to perform the correct character encoding. We have therefore replaced all these attributes with imdb display title (or alternative title if there was already an imdb display title), and removed the options from the contribution form:
  • ISO-LATIN-2 title
  • Cyrillic KOI8-R title
  • Greek ISO-8859-7 title
  • Turkish ISO-8859-9 title
  • original ISO-LATIN-2 title
  • original Cyrillic KOI8-R title
  • original Turkish ISO-8859-9 title
  • original Greek ISO-8859-7 title

We have also changed the transliterated ISO-LATIN-1 attribute to just "transliterated title" and created a guideline for this attribute here.

As always, we would welcome details of any issues you find, or feedback you have via this thread.

Many thanks!

Really good to see this. I have a good idea how much had to be done behind the scenes to make this possible.

Should this be an announcement rather than a question? It looks like it to me.
