There is no ISO-8859-9 for Turkish language. This is really serious problem. Original Movie Titles and Cast's names are ridiculous. If IMDb system can accept ISO-8859-7 so please let you accept ISO-8859-9 too. Define it make us happy please.

Hi Hasan -

Unfortunately, since we don't support the character sets for the Turkish language you will need to transliterate Turkish titles.  You can find additional information about our existing character sets and transliteration guidelines here: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/alternate-titles-akas/GBFBWTQG2RLMHSUR?ref_=helpsr...#

In the meantime, I have forwarded your request to includeISO-8859-9 to the appropriate team.

Hi,

Thank you for your kind reply, 
"since we don't support the character sets for the Turkish language" That is absolutely not fair. If you don't support some character sets of ISO 8859 , i would say ok. but it is not so. For example ISO 8859-7 and many character set is supported by imdb. 

What are difference characters between turkish and english?

ŞÇİÖÜĞ and şçıöüğ that is all. But please consider that our cast's name for example Cuneyt Arkin in the imdb site. In fact his name and surname are Cüneyt Arkın. It is really ridiculous for us. For example if i  write yor name is in turkish Mişel, What do you feel about it? IMDb site is international site and in my oppinion they should support every character set whole of world if you make an acoount for their films serials and etc in your site. 

for the guidelines, first i will read it. 

We wanna fix our people name and movie's name. Because some of them, really really very bad. 

Thanks again your reply and support,

Tansel
