Original Title for The NeverEnding Story shows it in German

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088323/

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110647/

For both of these the original title is showing up as the German title rather than the English title. 

I looked at the edit titles, but couldn't figure out how to correct that other than delete the German title which should just be the localized title, not the original title.

It is not so difficult to submit a title correction, but you would have to prove the on-screen title at original release.

They are German productions and first release appears to be in Germany for both of them. So I don't know why it should be changed?

@mbmb​  Correct ... we went through all of this in the 1990s when it really mattered about original titles on IMDb as there was no option for local AKA display.

Nowadays they display correctly in English to anyone who has chosen English language titles ,so there's no need to edit the original title language, especially as they are correct as-is in German anyway.
