I'm a registered user, my settings.

Title display country: US
Title display language: English.

But when I visit some movie site, search in IMDB or come here though external search engine (google) movie titles change form English to something else.

And BTW, these movies HAVE original English titles.

After twelve years here, I saw it happen for the first time today. I don't know yet how extensive the problem is going to be.

Simple advice for the code.
The problem is that for UK or US films, people specify something like
"(original title)  The Great Gatsby"
But don't specify UK or USA
That's why I'll have the french title displayed even though I put "USA" as my Title Display Country

So instead of having
Title display country non existent ==> Display title of user's country

Change your code to
Title display country non existent ==> Display Original Title

In most cases it'll do the trick

THIS PROBLEM IS *NOT* SOLVED.

And it remains that way even if some lying stuff member marks it as solved.

I have all my settings set to english, despite that, it translates every movie title based on my current location. Would be nice to fix it.
