[Metadata Source Plugin] Amazon.com Multiple Countries

This plugin allows you to download metadata from an additional Amazon.com country portal, in addition to the builtin Amazon.com metadata source.
Created by request in this thread.

Behind the scenes, it simply subclasses the builtin plugin and offers an additional copy under a different name. So it will only function as well as the builtin plugin, and any bug reports about the quality of the downloaded metadata can be directed to the calibre bugtracker.

The default country portal is France, because that was second on the list after the US (which is the default for the builtin plugin). But obviously, like the buitin source, you can configure it to whichever additional country portal you wish.

Special Notes:
  • Requires Calibre 0.8.2 or later.

Installation Notes:
  • Download the attached zip file and install the plugin as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.
  • Note that this is not a GUI plugin so it is not intended/cannot be added to context menus/toolbars etc.

Version History:
Spoiler:

Version 1.0.0 - 21 July 2016
Initial release of plugin

And in case anyone wants three or more sources at the same time, here are some additional copies.

Using the plugin, I've noticed one problem.

My standard set-up is with Amazon US (built-in Calibre plugin) and Amazon Germany (Multiple Countries) on.

In some cases (I guess it's when books are in both Amazon stores, which is the case of e.g. some English-language books, offered on Amazon.de) the downloaded comments are a mixture of data from both sources, and some paragraphs are repeated. Is there any way to fix this?

Here an example:


Quote:
Introducing Translation Studies remains the definitive guide to the theories and concepts that make up the field of translation studies. Providing an accessible and up-to-date overview, it has long been the essential textbook on courses worldwide.

This fourth edition has been fully revised and continues to provide a balanced and detailed guide to the theoretical landscape. Each theory is applied to a wide range of languages, including Bengali, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Punjabi, Portuguese and Spanish. A broad spectrum of texts is analysed, including the Bible, Buddhist sutras, Beowulf, the fiction of García Márquez and Proust, European Union and UNESCO documents, a range of contemporary films, a travel brochure, a children’s cookery book and the translations of Harry Potter.



****Each chapter comprises an introduction outlining the translation theory or theories, illustrative texts with translations, case studies, a chapter summary and discussion points and exercises.

NEW FEATURES IN THIS FOURTH EDITION INCLUDE:

new material to keep up with developments in research and practice, including the sociology of translation, multilingual cities, translation in the digital age and specialized, audiovisual and machine translation

revised discussion points and updated figures and tables

new, in-chapter activities with links to online materials and articles to encourage independent research

an extensive updated companion website with video introductions and journal articles to accompany each chapter, online exercises, an interactive timeline, weblinks, and powerpoint slides for teacher support

This is a practical, user-friendly textbook ideal for students and researchers on courses in Translation and Translation Studies.

Pressestimmen

"Jeremy Munday's Introducing Translation Studies has long been admired for its combination of theoretical rigour and down-to-earth explanation, and this new edition will further confirm its place as the go-to introduction for students and teachers alike. Its further incorporation of ideas from the Chinese context is particularly welcome." Robert Neather, Hong Kong Baptist University, China "An even better fourth edition of a widely popular and commonly used book in Translation Studies (TS). Like former editions, Munday's volume is a sound and accessible introduction to TS that will appeal not only to readers with a professional interest in TS but also to scholars and students in related fields. In Introducing Translation Studies, Munday combines scholarly rigor with reader-friendly style and an excellent didactic orientation, which will continue to make this book highly attractive to students, teachers and newcomers." Sonia Colina, University of Arizona, USA

Depending on how you do your metadata downloads, multiple results may or may not be merged.
Obviously, this is extra noticeable when they both return identical results...

IIRC, when downloading metadata for one book at a time, you can choose which result to use, and when downloading for multiple books en masse, calibre will automatically merge the results.

...

tl;dr
Nothing to do with this plugin or Amazon.
