    Foreign language titles, how to convert to English w/o typing all?

    The title really says it all. I just received an English addition of a box set containing all labels in Japanese. Is there a way to change the Japanese into English w/o retyping every label?

    Are you saying that after inserting a CD in you drive, CD Ripper gets metadata from the online databases, but all the retrieved tags are in Japanese, or just the titles?

    The tags are in Japanese. The box set is in English except for on the CDs. The set is Sony, "George Szell conducts Dvorak & Smetana".

    You should be able to go to 'CD Ripper > Menu > Manual Metadata Search' then in a browser find the album in Discogs, and as soon as you copy the URL to the clipboard it should populate the results in dBpoweramp for you to pick from.

    I think if I add the URL the post will be delayed, so I'll put it in this post: https://www.discogs.com/release/1388...hilharmonic-Sy

    EDIT: Cool, must have got privilege points (or maybe because it's Discogs).

    Dear Sinbum and Mville,

    First, thank you both for your efforts to help me.

    Second, please know that I had done that which you suggested. I still got Japanese for CDs 1 &2 and English for CDs 3 -0 7, but much was in error. The bottom line is that I did retype all in English. This was a true pain except that this box set contains excellent recordings so I suppose the time was worth the effort.

    Best regards,

    Tom
