Arenda | 22205 comments Author profiles in different languages should not be merged. I've added a link the other profile on both profiles.

For Arabic (and other non-Roman alphabet) authors, when they have books that are translated, all editions should have the English/Roman alphabet author as the primary author on all books.

I will work on the books that are on the Arabic profile when I have some time.

I've added Kahlil Gibran as primary author for all editions that are on the Arabic profile.

Also found a couple more author profiles for this author that needed some way of fixing, and done those too.
