Change original title

Dear IMDb,
i have a problem regarding the title of one of my films. The title of the film, which is listed as "Ako sa varia dejiny" is not correct and I need to change it to "Cooking history" which is the original title. I tried to change the title several times but it won't work and also updated the title in the update history, also without success.
Also the displayed title changes when logged-in and out. When logged-in i see the preferred and ORIGINAL title in English but when logged-out you can only see the Czech title (so everyone else only sees this one).
Does anyone know how I can change the original title of a film?

From the data:

Cooking History Czech Republic (imdb display title) / International (imdb display title) (English title)


So, yes, Cooking History is the display name which is the one I see. When you aren't logged in I assume the system is detecting your location (Slovakia?) and displaying the title in the local language.

So there isn't a problem here, as far as I can tell.

Hello Emperor,

thanks for your reply. But the problem is that my location is Austria therefore I'd need to see the title in English instead of Czech. And also the Original title is the English one which is falsely displayed as the AKA title.
So my question is how can I change the Original title?

Thanks in advance!

OK, I see. It seems like someone has added the imdb display title attributes to try to correct the problem.

Then going back to the original post, what did you mean when you said:

I tried to change the title several times but it won't work and also updated the title in the update history, also without success.


Have those submissions been rejected? If so, what was the explanation?

When did you make the submissions? There are backlogs in data processing, so you do need to wait a while, as this won't happen instantly and if you keep submitting the same changes you will keep resetting the clock.

If they have been rejected, you can copy and paste your submissions in here and someone will take a look at them to see if there is a problem there.

Hi - I too need to change my film's title.
It made it into IMDB with a working title which I used for a withoutabox submission.
I've now changed it on withoutabox but IMDB still has old title.

Any help is much appreciated!

Matan,

Click the Edit Page button on that page, scroll to the bottom and pick Title Correction. You should enter the new title followed by the same tags as before: (2013) (V).
