João Costa (jamesadams) | 31 comments How can I combine books when the author’s name is different in two countries?

For instance the author Jules Verne, in my language is name is “Júlio Verne”, and because of that I don’t know what to combine is books.

Thanks in advance!

Two options:
1) Merge Júlio Verne to Jules Verne. (This would be my suggestion, since the latter is his given name.)
2) Wait for the oft-requested AKA feature.

João Costa (jamesadams) | 31 comments I will try the first option, it makes more sense!
Thanks rivka.
