Kobo: same title / different language

Hi,

(Not quite sure where to post this question... is it only linked to my device - Kobo - and to my plugin - Kobo touch extended 2.2.20 and Kobo Utilities 1.7.3)


When I select files which differ only by the language, only one of them is sent to the device.

Examples:
  • 1984, H. G. WELLS (en, fr)
  • 1984, H. G. WELLS (en, fr)
  • Siddharta, Herman HESSE (de, en, fr)
  • Dune, Franck HERBERT (en, fr)
  • Henry IV, Shakespeare (en, fr)
  • ... (feel free to add your examples)

How to send to device books with the same title and same author but in different language?
Maybe someone can share his technique...
I tend to insert the language code in the title, which is a bit strange (maybe adding the name of the translator in the author list could also be a "solution").

Feature request
Is there a way to have Calibre (through the plugin I guess) to deal with the languages the same way it deals with the series... adding at least the language code to the library browser list (maybe on the right hand side)?

Regards

François

You can get the first part of what you want using the save template in the driver configuration. By adding the language into the template and hence the file name, the books will be differentiated on the device. Something like:

Code:
{author_sort}/{title} - {authors}{languages:language_codes()| - |}
should work. The will create a file like:

Code:
HERBERT, Franck\Dune - Franck HERBERT - eng.epub
For the library list display, there isn't a way to change the fields displayed. The series info is one that Kobo put there. But, you can use a metadata plugboard to set the title in the book. Something like:

Code:
{title}{languages:language_strings()| (|)}
will put the following in the title in the metadata and the library list will show:

Code:
Dune (English)
That's the closest I can think of. The exact template used in both places will affect exactly what the file name and title is.

Hi DavidFor,

Thank you very much for taking the time to answer and giving me the precious codes to achieve that.

Shame that Kobo didn't give us the opportunity to fill the right hand side of the library list.

Regards

François
