Check Localization of name?

Post by GlassFish »

Hi, I would like to know how to check if the used name has Japanese characters in it.

I am using:

Code: Select all

 {norm(localize.ger.ny)+"/"}
{f.subtitle ? "Subs/" : null}   
 {norm(localize.en.ny)}{" - Part $pi"}
The problem is that several movies do not have the name in german and then default to japanese, which is quite annoying.
I want to fix that.

eg.: themoviedb
Hunter x Hunter Last Mission
It will show the Original title with the japanese characters, although the site is written in german.
However, even if there is no english title defined "en.ny" will just output the title in english.

The same with the Collection name. Is there a way to not use the japanese characters? Because I am unable to find an alternative Collection name.
Actually, I can just replace this japanese name with "collection"...

eg.:
Tiger & Bunny
The Collection itself has japanese characters in front of the name
The ger name has japanese characters in front too .


So, how can I check if the name has/is in japanese and then default to english?
OR how can I default to the japanese Alternativetitle, because that one is always in english unlike the originaltitle.

What can I do when a name/collection has Kanji? in it but there is no translated title?

Also, can I somehow take the japanese name in english words? There is often the japanese alternativename in english given but when I just use "ja.ny" then I will get the originaltitle which is in kanji.

If you are using TheMovieDB::TV with FileBot 4.9.2 then there are known issues:

TheMovieDB::TV prefers the Original Name field for {n} and thus ignores the user-defined language preferences in cases where Name and Original Name are not one and the same (fixed with r8090)
