This item has been rejected. You need to correct this item before it will be accepted.
  • The year of release is missing from the title.
  • Please include the year of first public screening in ( )'s as per IMDb's title guidelines. If the year is unknown please use (????) instead.
  • The year or title type tag is incorrectly formatted. 
  • Please format this title according to the IMDb title guidelines.
There is already a release date there. I am not trying to update the release date. I'm updating the alternate title for English. Nothing to do with the release date whatsoever.

The year they want here is the year in which this alternate title was first used, not the year that the film was released.

For example, if a film was released in 1990 with the title "My First Film" but re-released this year as "First and Only", then you would use the Year 2014 with the alternate title.
