Alexey Golikov (alexeygolikov) | 19 comments I'm not sure how book series should be organized if the editions are in different languages. If they should be collected to a common series then please combine these ones:

https://www.goodreads.com/series/139490
and
https://www.goodreads.com/series/53109

If not please divide them into a separate series by edition languages.

Neither of those appears to be series by Goodreads standards. Among other issues, it does not appear that all editions of each work belong to the "series". It's an imprint, not a series.

lethe | 13747 comments That one is most definitely a series in my view. The same series exists in different languages. See also https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Sorting this out is on my long list of things to do, but I could use some help transliterating the Russian names.

That is not the way to handle this. The Spanish series is the original one, the series title in other languages can be noted on the Spanish series page. The editions in different languages need to be combined.
