→‎Non-Production Language Episode Titling Policies: Update as per discussion at https://anidb.net/post463118
===Non-Production Language Episode Titling Policies===
These basic principles apply to any language titles other than the original production lanague language (e.g. English, French, Spanish titles, etc.):. ====Finding Episode Titles====
# Check these sources, in order, to see if there is an official title available for the language in question:
## The video from an official licensed source for that language.
## The tertiary official sources like the DVD/Blu-ray back cover, if any.
# If there is no official title for that language, use a translation of the official title from the production language (JP/KO/ZH).
 After finding (or not finding) an applicable title, proceed to the next section on how to apply the title to each episode type. ====Applying Episode Titles: General Policy====# '''For English language TV series main titles onlyepisodes''': If there is also no official ## Not applicable.## Use the title in obtained under the production language, use the following scheme:rules for finding episode titles.## TV series main episodes# For English titles: Use otherwise if no title is found, use "Episode XX" where XX is the number of the episode.## # For all other languages: do not add a title.# '''OVA and OAD main episodes: Use '''## If there is only one volume in the entire release, use "OVA"/"OAD" if instead of the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles; also refer to [[Content:Titles#Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry|Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry]].## If there is only more than one volume, use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.### For English titles: otherwise if no title is found, use "Volume XX"for each OVA/OAD episode.## # For all other languages: do not add a title.# '''Movies main episodes: '''## If there is only one movie in the entire release, use "Complete Movie" if instead of the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles; also refer to [[Content:Titles#Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry|Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry]].## If there is only more than onemovie, use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.### For English titles: otherwise if no title is found, use "Movie XX" for each movie.### For all other languages: do not add a title.## ''Movies split into multiple parts when released by fansubs''### In the past (generally 2010 or older), fansubs used to release movies separated into multiple files: this was done to reduce file sizes, and allow files to fit on a 700MB CD-R.### For example, a 2 hour movie may be split into 2 files of 1 hour each, resulting in a "Part 1" and "Part 2" file.### When adding these to the database, only for Movies, we create multiple regular episode entries to store all the part files.### The naming convention is as follows: "Part XX of YY" -- see example: {{short|a331|Tenkuu no Shiro Laputa (Laputa: Castle in the Sky)}}### In the rare case of a multiple file fansub release for a movie series with more than 1 movie in the series:#### When each movie has a title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles, use "_______: Part XX of YY". Examples: "Origination: Part 1 of 2", "Execution: Part 2 of 2".#### Otherwise if no title is found, use "Movie ZZ: Part XX of YY". Examples: "Movie 1: Part 1 of 2", "Movie 2: Part 2 of 2".# '''Music Videos main episodes'''## If there are is only one episode in the entire release, use "Music Video" instead of the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles; also refer to [[Content:Titles#Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry|Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry]].## If there is more than oneepisode, use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.## # For English titles: otherwise if no title is found, use "Episode XX" for each episode.### For all other languages: do not add a title.# '''Web series main episodes: Use "Web" if '''## If there is only one episodein the entire release, otherwise use "Episode XXWeb". , "Short Movie", "Complete Movie", can also be used for Web releases etc. as appropriate, instead of the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles; also refer to [[Content:Titles#Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry|Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry]].## Music Videos main episodes: Use "Music Video" if If there is only more than one episode, use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.### For English titles: otherwise if no title is found, use "Episode XX"for each episode.## # For all other languages: do not add a title.# '''S episodes'''## Not applicable.## Use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.### For English titles: Use otherwise if no title is found, use the default "Special XXEpisode SX" title format, e.g. "Episode S1", "Episode S13".## # For all other languages: do not add a title.# '''C/T episodes'''## Not applicable.## Not applicable.### For English titles: See see the relevant type-specific section sections for in-depth guidance.### For all other languages: do not add a title. ====Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry====These anime entries typically only have 1 ''regular'' episode entry (regular episode type, meaning S episodes are excluded):# OVA/OAD# Movie# Music Video# Web Series (when used to release an OVA/OAD, Movie, or Music Video; does not apply to Web Series used to release a TV series)For these anime entries, when it only has 1 regular-type episode entry, the episode title is added to anime entry's title and '''not''' the episode entry's title; the entry's single episode title follows default rules as outlined above. # Generally, this rule applies only for cases when there are one (''{{short|a13248|Hajimete no Gal: Hajimete no Bunkasai}}'') or two (''{{short|a14024|Koi to Uso: Isshou no Koi / Koi no Kimochi}}'') episode titles for the single episode release.# In rare cases when there are more than 2 (''{{short|a13387|Tottoko Hamtarou: Anime Dechu!}}'') episode titles, do '''not''' add them to the OVA/OAD's anime title; they are added like usual to the episode entry's title.
