Export Ratings - Wrong Title Language

This just recently started as I've been exporting my ratings for years. Even though my preferred language is set to English, I'm getting original titles exported. Seems to have started in the past month or so.

Same problem. Original title is exported to the ratings.csv file which makes it impossible to find the movie I want by searching because I used a word from the title I know and, indeed, the main title that is displayed to me on the IMDB website. Yet, the search produces no results in the csv file because it contains the original titles, which often do not share any of the same words. When you have thousands of rating this makes it nearly impossible to find what you want. Clearly the exported file should have the same title that is being shown to me as the main title on the website. 3 months later and this still hasn't been resolved. Can someone please take ownership of this problem and insure some progress. Thank you!

I am also frustrated - I have checked back through the community and it was flagged 4 years ago. So frustrating I cannot reconcile  English titles with original title in list exports . I have spent 5 days now looking up all 4000 titles in my lists and creating my own VLOOKUP excel translation to help me do this. Do you have a way of prioritising development requests ? Is so this should be up there as an and user productivity development.

Does anyone ever read these messages from IMDB development team ?  I'm back 8 months later (same as other members on the post thread) and no reply . The issue still exists.  You are getting free user feedback on important enhancement opportunities here . So please at least have the courtesy of updating these suggestions with progress to improve your product .

btw this is a fundamental design flaw that should have been picked up during testing anyway.
