The Unicode character at code point

Here we are, 2018.

I've read this article before trying to add a new title, which claims:
We use the original title of a movie/show in its original language as it appears on screen in the opening credits.
Ok.

Then I try to add 'Главный конструктор'. And I get the error from the title of this post. In 2018 when UTF is widely supported *sigh*

Then, I try to copy-paste cp1251, KOI8-R.

Then, I google and find some posts from 2016 (I, II).

Then, I decide to 'send feedback' (feedback is important, yeah?) - it is better than doing nothing. And I see:
We found 31983 similar conversations
Do any of these match what you're looking for?
Oh, wow.

I'm not sure if this movie is available in English, there is no article in wikipedia about this title, you know. But I see the director in the database.
So, I am not sure that I can find the correct translation/translate the title correctly to specify russian title as alternative. And why should I use unoriginal title in its unoriginal language?

It's frustrating!

I'm okay with the absence of many non-English movies.
I'm okay with sites which don't support utf-encodings.

But I'm not okay with inability to do exactly what I supposed to do. I understand that one movie is not a good reason to rewrite some part of your backend. I even understand, that this post means nothing, cause I am not an active user, etc.

BUT!

I tried just a simple action for the first time and didn't succeed. Easy things should be easy, and hard things should be possible.


31983 similar conversations! Seriously?

Hi Max -

If the title is Russian please be aware that you will need to add the title with the following transliteration: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/other-submission-guides/russian-names-titles/GX27PHHMYTYE...#

Please try adding the title again, this time with the transliteration characters mention in the above guide.  Let us know if you encounter any issues!
