Translating values

All text based metadata fields can be provided in multiple languages. If no language is specified in the header, English is assumed.

To add a translation for a particular field, add /lang after the corresponding field name in the header row, where lang is the two-digit BCP 47 language code.

Example
... title/en title/fr title/ja ...
... Mona Lisa La Joconde モナ・リザ ...

 

For metadata fields with subattributes, include the language code after the subattribute. For example:
location:placename/en
If a you are providing multiple values for an attribute, include the language code after the #n. For example:
creator#0/en
