Change News Language

Hi guys,

Just wondering if there's a way to change the metadata of a downloaded news source to take into account the language of the source. The default setting is to use <dc:language>en</dc:language>
, however I would like to specify (for example for each news source) the language it actually is (makes it easier for direct dictionary lookups on device)

Anyone have any idea how that could be done?
Much appreciated
ds

Hi Kovid,

Thanks for the response - I've found the new feature - and it's exactly what I needed. Just wondering if its not possible to set a default language for news as it comes in, or can one only do so after its come in/been downloaded?

Thanks again

News downloads are given the correct language when they are downloaded. As I said update to 0.8.20

Thanks a bunch. That's exactly what I'd hoped for.
Love calibre as I'm sure everyone else on this forum does; thanks for the work you've put in.
