[Feature Request] Search titles for other languages

Post by Ambroisie »

Hi, here's what I would love to have, there are some shows I share on shared folders with my cousin, he's german and wants the titles in german, whereas I want the titles in english and french, I figured :

Why can't Filebot do the three in one ? Kind of : English Title (French One - German One)....

I think you should integrate some sort of "t.en" for the english language, "t.fr" for the french... et coetera.

What do you think ?

Only very few people would ever be looking for multiple languages, not to mention that you should name things in English or original language anyway at all times.

There won't be bindings because the data won't be available in advance.

There's hacks like this though:

Code: Select all

{def db = net.sourceforge.filebot.WebServices.TheTVDB; ['en', 'fr', 'de'].collectMany{ lc -> db.getEpisodeList(series, null, new Locale(lc))}.findAll{episode.season == it.season && episode.episode == it.episode}.title.join(' - ')}

Instead of having all three in the file name, why not name the file in English and take the results for German and French and symlink.

//STORAGE/Videos/English/English Title.mkv (Real File

symlinked files:
//STORAGE/Videos/Deutsch/Deutsch Titel.mkv
//STORAGE/Videos/Francais/Titre francais.mkv

Very good point. You should do what bonelifer is says. Create 3 different folder structure for the 3 languages. With the HARDLINK option you can have the same file on different folders without taking more space. And you if you want things more automated then you can just put 3 filebot -rename calls into a shell script.

EDIT:
This is what the previous expressions does:

It's a matter of copy and paste. You could have tried this yourself. ;)


EDIT2:
This is for future reverence and only works with r1972+

Code: Select all

{['en', 'fr', 'de'].collectMany{ lc -> database.getEpisodeList(series, 'airdate', lc)}.findAll{episode.numbers == it.numbers}.title.join(' - ')}

Ok thanks, but just to know, is there a way to make it write the two last ones in brackets ?

I think I'll do like bonelifer said, three folders structure, thanks all !

I show you how you get the data. How to format it in different ways is easy to figure out. Check your nearest Groovy tutorial. ;)

Compared to the above, how is this more complicated? It's almost exactly the same, just composed differently. :D

Code: Select all

{t} ({['fr', 'de'].collectMany{ lc -> database.getEpisodeList(series, 'airdate', lc)}.findAll{episode.numbers == it.numbers}.title.join(', ')})
Remember that this one requires r1972+
