Please next time consider that Russian/Ukrainian series very rarely are named in Latin, usually it's a transliterated name, so it need to be looked up in it's original language. Also, you can search TVmaze for "tvdb 269264" :)

But latin names should be added as AKA tho :)

Not necessarily. If the series was never broadcasted outside a Cyrillic countries, why would it need a Latin AKA? Where should it came from? And even if it does, it would rather be a translated name, not a transliteration.

I agree here :)

Not everyone has a cyrilic keyboard if someone is interested in a series from them.

policy says aka is not for translations, only for adding names that a show has in a different country :)

It's not a reason to invent a made-up name. If the series have an official Latin/English name, it should be added, obviously. But if it's not – the Latin name shouldn't be invented.

In this particular case, "Motylki" is a made-up name. It's a transliteration from the original Мотыльки (moths), but the series have a totally different official English name, Inseparable.

It's kind of implied in the meaning of AKA – also known as. The series should really be known under this name :)

I fully agree with you on this :)

with all do respect, but if we are going to whine about such small thing, our policy says too that english names will have precedence over their original Ukrainian/russian name, why are u still using the local name?

But it does not :D

It says exactly the opposite:

The name must be the original name given by the network or web channel. There must be no suffixes like "(UK)" or "(2013)" that are not part of the original show name. If a show doesn't have a name or working title, it should not yet be added.

Normally, the name's original language and character set should be used, no translations or transliterations. However, some shows are known by multiple names, all of which can be considered official. This mainly happens with - Japanese - anime shows, which can have a name in the Chinese/Kanji character set (like "進撃の巨人"), a transliterated Latin version (like "Shingeki no Kyojin") and sometimes even an English version ("One Piece").

You forgot to quote the last part.

When this is the case, the English or transliterated name takes precedence over the Kanji version. All other available names should be added as AKA.

Kanji is here being used as example, but it also depicts to any other language.

This is the important part:

Such a name is only considered official when it's actively used by the Show's original network or producers.

Does it? Why doesn't it say so?)))
It reminds me of discussion we've had over the names of the Russian actors.

But honestly, I couldn't care less, as long as the show could be found by it's original name :P

I never supported that either to use russian for their names. As simple as that, so I guess you understand my point :)

Thanks for the clarification, that's why I queried since I found disagreement, I suspected a retcon. I'll just have to rename for my scraper.
