thanks Chaley,

well I refrained from redefining language from, say, Spanish to es, because I wasn't sure if Kindle would then recognize the correct language and pop the appropriate dictionary.

I should, as you say, have created a custom column instead of hijacking the tags. However, I don't use the tags at all ("romance", "poetry" ... yes I know, they're my books! on the other hand I do need a quick way to identify books with the same title but different languages).

I see that you can clear certain fields (like the tags) for a batch of books, but I haven't found how to do that for the ratings.

cheers for now, thanks again for your help.
