[Solved][Question] Can I set Author sort rules?

Some Authors with Kanji or Chinese characters has tricky reading.
Thanks for Calibre's awesome GUI, I can easily tell Calibre how the author's name should be read by adding words in the author sort column.

My question is..
Is it possible to set Author sort rules for specific authors?
I want Calibre to understand what is the true reading (true sort) automatically.

Sorry for my bad English.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

No, BUT you can manage AUTHORS and set the sort there (applies to all usages)

Right click the author name in the tag browser: Manage: change the sort value
