Hi Ken -

I can see that the title page now includes the new title, "Beforeigners":

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8332130/?ref_=ttrel_rel_tt

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8332130/releaseinfo?ref_=tt_ql_dt_2

Note that if the title was initially released under "Fremvandrerne", we will need to retain this text as the Original title on the site.


Cheers!

So there is no way to switch to the name to "Beforeigners"? That is our title now. And for our followers abroad, the title "Fremvandrerne" a bit strange. Hope you can help us. Best regards, Ken from Rubicon TV

Ken: According to the show's IMDb title page, this is a Norwegian TV series in the Norwegian language.

When the show premiered in Norway, what was the on-screen title of the first episode there? "Fremvandrerne" or "Beforeigners"? The Norwegian Wikipedia lists the show as "Fremvandrerne".

The IMDb policy is to use the original title of a show in its original language as the official IMDb title. But international viewers who watch the show in English will be able to find the show in the database because "Beforeigners" is indeed listed as an alternate title by IMDb.

It has always been “Beforeigners “.
“Fremvandrerne” was just the Norwegian working title.

Hi Ken -

If the title wasn't released under "Fremvandrerne" and this was instead a Working Title, please submit this as an Alternate title with the attribute "working title", you can then submit a Title Correction, requesting that the title be changed to "Beforeigners".
