I've seen several mini bios written in Spanish. I wonder if they're just automatic translations or IMDb has changed the guidelines about them. Anybody knows?

Hi Xurxo -

As per our guidelines, all mini-Bios should be written in English.  If you have seen mini-Bios on the site in another language, please post the name page links here and our staff can take a look.

I was checking the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" series and found many of the cast mini bios were in Spanish. They're very similar, that's why I thought they were automatically generated.

Additionally, this only happens within the app.

These are some of them:

- LeVar Burton
- Michael Dorn
- Gates McFadden
- Majel Barrett
- Colm Meaney

I'm attaching a couple of screenshots so you can see what I mean.

Then I guess it's the app that automatically translates them when you use it from Spain. I see it only happens to basic bios.

Awesome! I'd like to ask you one more question. I've seen several wrong translations in the app. Is there some way to submit corrections?
