Search: Localize suggestion search results

I am using the imdb app in germany and german.
If i search for a movie then i have to think about how the movie is named in english because the search field is only showing english suggestions.
For example: If I want to search the movie "Wall Street: Geld schläft nicht" I am not able to search something related to that german movie title. I need enter something related to the english title "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps".
This is fine if the english title is nearly the same than the german but otherwise its not easy to find the correct movie.
But for example if i select the correct movie from the search field suggestion then i get the movie with the localized title, in my example the german title.
Also if i only search for "Wall street" and let me show all movies for that text i also see the localized titles.
So my suggestion is to also integrate the localized movie titles already in the search field suggestions.

Thanks.

Regards
Alexander

Sorry for the delay on this.  We have opened a ticket with the appropriate team.  Can you confirm that the issue is still happening on the latest version of the IMDb app and which device do you have? Thanks.

We are moving this over to the "Idea" category.  At the moment it is not easy for us to localize the suggestion search due to the way it is implemented. We will consider this as we update the search technology in the future.  Thanks for reporting the issue.
