I want to add a Swedish film but I also want to add the english name of the film. So that you see the Swedish name in Sweden and the English name in the rest of the word. I cannot find how to do it. Is this possible? Can somebody help me?

Thank you! :)

Nibbla: If the film was originally released in Sweden with its Swedish-language title, then submit the Swedish-language title as the film's title.

As part of the initial submission, there will be other types of data listed as "Recommended Information". When you see that, below that, there will be a checkbox labeled "To add more data for categories that aren't listed above, select this box". Check that box and click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, you will have the options to submit data from all of IMDb's data types. Fifth from the end of the list will be Alternate Titles. On that line, select "Add 1 item". Click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, you will be able to submit the English-language title. In the AKA box, enter the English title followed by the year in parentheses when the film was first released under that English title (which is not necessarily the film's original year). For Country/Language, select "International: English title" if the same title is used throughout the English-speaking world. And for Attribute, select "imdb display title".

Then proceed through the rest of the data submission as normal.

Good luck!
