I've ripped and tagged my entire collection, and used (and prefer) English tagnames. So far so good, however my roommates had some reading difficulties, and prefer another language.

I could ofcourse retag the whole collection, but I was hoping that there was a way to translate the genre-names.

Is it possible? Or do I need to store double (or multiple) genre tagnames?

If you are only interested in multiple languages for the GENRE tag, and you don't have too many different genre values, you could do this reasonably easily in mp3tag.

Just tell it to replace <genre-name-in-english> with <genre-name-in-english>;<genre-name-in-other> for each of the different genre values you have in use.

Then rescan, and the music will show up in each of the two different genres.

I have about 50 different genres, so that is quite a task. Furthermore, if for some reason you require a new language, you have to do this again.

Could it be done by a plugin, or is this too deep in the core?
