Why are you showing translated titles in Serbian instead of Croatian language?

Hi, I'm from Croatia and I started noticing that some translated movie titles are being shown to me in Serbian language. I thought it was happening since I wasn't logged in. Then I logged in with my Google account and set my site language to Croatian but the problem remained (For example for the movie The Conspiracy, Croatian translation should be Zavjera, but instead it writes Zavera, which is Serbian translation). Although you may think that's all the same, it's a major insult to Croatian people, so please solve this as fast as you can!

Hi, Boris Lovrić. Most likely all of those title pages need corrections to their respective "alternate titles" data sections. See https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2330322/releaseinfo for example. The Croatian title should be Zavjera. You can fix this by editing the page, and submitting the form.

Sorry for the inconvenience.  If there are data errors with the alternate titles then these can be corrected as suggested above by Jeorg. 

However, the general problem around displaying correct titles is a known issue and it is tricky to provide the best experience due to the way we store some of the information about original titles and local titles. 

Until we have a full solution, our recommendation is to go to your site settings at https://www.imdb.com/preferences/general and on the menu "Title display country" please choose "Original" which is the first item on the menu.  This will block the localization of titles which should improve things, even though there will still be some issues.

Boris Lovrić, could you maybe provide a list of title pages that have incorrect translations in their respective alternate titles sections?
