So that's pretty intuitive once you've worked out where to look. Thanks a lot for your help.

It seems there's no way to batch-convert the authors format from "Twain, Mark" to "Mark Twain", correct me if I'm wrong.

I also wanted to add language to the file name.

Based on what I read there: http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/temp...codes-localize, I tried:

{authors}/{authors} - {title} - {language_strings(lang_codes, localize)}

Based on intuition, I also tried:

{authors}/{authors} - {title} - {languages}

Neither works. Does anyone know how to do it? Many thanks.
Use the Quality check plugin to swap Author names.:
First run the metadata check: find Authors with Commas
Select all the results (de-select those you do not want to change)
Then run the:
Fix: Swap Author....
