BC Book Prizes (bcbookprizes) | 2 comments How do we denote a dual language book? The "primary language" drop down only allows you to select 1 choice.

I have 2 examples.

It can only be done in the description field. If one of the two is primary, you can list it via the dropdown; otherwise leave the dropdown unselected.

Riikka (Rakuna) | 58 comments There is also an option to choose Multiple languages from the dropdown. I've been using that in situations like this. Isn't that correct?

Oh, is that an option on the dropdown? Cool! I never noticed -- yeah, that would be a good idea for books like this.
