Paulo Luz | 2685 comments Sandra wrote: "#30 Paulo, it already had the correct sort title."

Hi Sandra

The sort title should be "Pendulo de foucault, o" and not "Pêndulo de foucault, o"

The accents should not be used in the sort titles (at least in portuguese).

Thanks!

Paulo


message 33: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 27119 comments I've never heard that before. As far as I know, the sort title is the same as the title.

The librarian manual says:

"USING THE SORT BY TITLE FIELD
This field is for the title that would be used when sorting by title so that articles like "A," "An," and "The" can be excluded.

Examples of sort by titles:

title: The Lawman
sort by title: lawman, the

title: The Unsung Hero (Troubleshooters, #1)
sort by title: unsung hero, the (troubleshooters, #1)

When initially manually adding a new edition to Goodreads, the system will automatically create the sort by title - but only for articles "a," "an," and "the." For titles that start with punctuation or for a translated title that starts with an article such as "la," the sort-by title will need to be manually set. If there is series information present in parentheses following the title, Goodreads will change the sort by title to:

unsung hero (troubleshooters, #1), the

as opposed to:

unsung hero, the (troubleshooters, #1)

Either way is acceptable when manually editing the sort by title."



As you can see there is no mention of the accents.


message 34: by Paulo (new)

Paulo Luz | 2685 comments Please correct book title of the following book:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

to "Os Olhos Malvados do To Jonatham"

You can also add:

isbn: 9789725590195
Original published year: December 1983
edtion: Colecção: Bolso Noite
description:
"Ninguém gostava de Buck Vardis, o maltratado sobrinho do falecido tio Jonatham, por isso ele se escondia. Até que um dia, o tio Jonatham voltou na figura de um cadáver. E Buck Vardis finalmente, pode arrancá-los, libertar-se daqueles olhos, dos olhos malvados do tio Jonatham... Um policial empolgante de mais de um autor português."

Thanks

The librarian manual says:

Yes, I saw the librarian manual and nothing is mentioned about that.

The problem is that the system turns ê to a different word than e and puts all words with accents at the end of the alphabet:

a,b,c,d,e,f....x,y,z,à,à,â,â,é,è,ê,í,ì, etc

message 36: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 27119 comments #34 done. I left the i in Tio, because that's how its spelt on the cover.


message 37: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 27119 comments #35 If that's the case then that's definitely something that should be mentioned in the Feedback group. Please post it, probably the Question & Suggestion Folder would be best.

Also, you could post it in the Policies & Practices thread here in the Librarian Group.

While changing to unaccented letters is not mentioned in the Manual in regards to book sort-by fields, it is for author sort-by fields. Adding it to book sort-by fields is on our list.


message 41: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 27119 comments Good to know, so I should change them when I come across them?

I didn't know we had author sort by fields.

Sure!


Sandra wrote: "I didn't know we had author sort by fields."

They are on each author's edit page. We added them in late 2015: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...


message 43: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 27119 comments Well that makes sense. Of course I know that *duh*.

I was thinking of the book edit page and my tunnel vision was obviously in full swing. LOL

Thanks for the link, I'll read through it :)
