Can't add alternative title

The Finnish TV series "Itse asiassa kuultuna" (2006) has a Swedish title "Hörd i sak".

I have tried over twenty times to add that alternate title. In vain. I even copy-pasted the original Finnish title "Itse asiassa kuultuna" (2006) but it was also rejected.

There are no white spaces nor any forbidden characters. Still this is all I get:

This item has been rejected. You need to correct
this item before it will be accepted.
  • The year or title type tag is incorrectly formatted.
    Please format this title according to the IMDb title guidelines.
  • There is a mismatch between the title type of the primary and AKA titles.

    Please correct the mismatch according to IMDb's title formatting rules. If you are adding an alternate title to one of the following title types, please ensure the alternate title includes the made-for-video tag of (V), a video game tag of (VG), a TV Movie tag of (TV), or series titles in quotation marks into the AKA field. Please see the below for examples:

    "Title" (year) i.e. "Mad Men" (2007)

    Title (year) (TV) i.e. The Oscars (2015) (TV)

    Title (year) (V) i.e. Aladdin and the King of Thieves (1996) (V)

    Title (year) (VG) i.e. Tomb Raider (1996) (VG)


AKA: "Hörd i sak" (2006)
Country/Language: Finland: Swedish title
Attribute: imdb display title

TV series have quotation marks and TV movies abbreviation in brackets.

I don't think they are supposed to be used simultaneously.

As I wrote the alternate title does not contain any forbidden characters. Such as the French Œ or Polish Ł or Czech Č. Ö is a very common letter in IMDb and so is its Danish/Norwegian counterpart Ø.

Thank you for adding the alternative title.

I guess this problem had something to do with this notice:

Please note: We have recently changed the format used when entering Alternative Title's. Please input just the name of the title, without a year, for example: The Matrix not The Matrix (1999). Tomb Raider not Tomb Raider (1996) (VG).
