The Movie Database Support

Hi everyone,

How to translate genres into Arabic? And how to write actors' names in Arabic?

I'm basically trying to improve the Arabic content in the database (which is very poor unfortunately). So if there is anything else that can be translated please let me know.

Your help is appreciated.

Some corrections to Finnish translations:

  • British = Brittiläinen

  • Sci-Fi & Fantasy = Scifi & Fantasia
  • Science Fiction = Science fiction
  • Western = Lännenelokuva

Reasons for correction:

  • British: spelling
  • Foreign: singular
  • Sci-Fi & Fantasy: spelling
  • Science Fiction: correct use of capitals in Finnish
  • Western: singular

In Greek

Action = Δράση Action & Adventure = Περιπέτεια - Δράσης Adventure = Περιπέτεια Animation = Κινούμενα Σχέδια Comedy = Κωμωδία Crime = Εγκλήματος instead of Έγκλημα Documentary = Ντοκιμαντέρ instead of Ντοκυμαντερ Drama = Δράμα Erotic = Ερωτική Family = Οικογενειακή Fantasy = Φαντασίας Film Noir = Φιλμ Νουάρ History = Ιστορική Horror = Τρόμου Kids = Παιδική Music = Μουσική Musical = Μιούζικαλ Mystery = Μυστηρίου News = Νέα Reality = Ριάλιτι Romance = Ρομαντική Sci-Fi & Fantasy = Επ.

  • Reality TV ------------ Reality Show
  • News ---------------- Notícias
  • Game Show ---------- Game show
  • Talk Show ------------ Talk show

Right: телевизионный фильм Wrong: tелевизионный фильм

First letter is Cyrillic "т", not Latin "t"

Too many musicals i.e. Finnish translation is wrong. I just noticed that I get really weird musical recommendations. Like The Bourne Identity, Oblivion, Rear Window and Saw :smiley:

The used Finnish translation for mystery means musical. There has been copy/paste error etc. Here are three corrected genre translations:

  • Mystery: Mysteeri
  • Science Fiction: Science fiction
  • Western: Lännenelokuva

Has this been added? I can't find it through /genre/movie/list.

Thanks! :)

@ArnauBlanch

There is no translation of the site interface into Catalan.
I think that genres in Catalan will only be available when there is a translation of the site interface.
And to have a translation of the interface, someone needs to do.
To do this, someone needs to ask Travis to add Catalan to Locale, the interface translation site.

See in this link Website Translation

https://www.themoviedb.org/bible/general/59f792a29251413e93000001#59f793929251413e93000011

And I suggest you also inform the translation of the current list of genres and the likely list to be implemented.
See here at this link:

https://www.themoviedb.org/talk/51b5fe1a760ee359996a0e62

And here's the Travis likely list:

My initial proposal for TMDb's new set of genres is going to be the following:

Action
Adventure
Animation
Biography
Comedy
Crime
Documentary
Drama
Family
Fantasy
Film-Noir
Holiday
History
Horror
Musical
Music Videos & Concerts
Mystery
Romance
Science Fiction
Thriller
War
Western
