message 1: by Gizella (new)

Gizella Tóth (tigi5) | 25 comments I've got a little problem. There is a Hungarian author called Péter Müller and there is (or are) another author(s) (one is Austrian, I think) called Peter Müller (maybe even Peter Muller, but I am not sure:). As I cannot separate the name with and without accent (Péter and Peter) now every book is under Péter Müller.

Can anybody separate these two (or more) authors, please?

These are the Hungarian Péter Müller's books:

Nina | 426 comments I've tried too, but don't know what's going on.. Every time I change the details of a book to Peter, it automatically changes it back to Péter...

Gizella Tóth (tigi5) | 25 comments Yes, I know. You have to choose either Peter or Péter but it does not allow both. I just hope there is someone who can separate and change things.

Even with an accent, you still need to use the usual method to disambiguate authors: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2...

Gizella Tóth (tigi5) | 25 comments Oh, thanks, rivka, so I can do it myself - I thought that an ordinary librarian couldn't do it -- oh my, it'll be a lot of work :(

Nina | 426 comments Oh right. I didn't think it would see é and e are the same...

If you want to Gizella, I can help

Gizella Tóth (tigi5) | 25 comments I am almost done ... only 30 to go :D ('cause of course I left one space in our Péter Müller and put two spaces to the lot of foreign Peter Müller:)))
