Hello all!

I just wanted to suggest an alteration, I could not exactly call it a bug fix.

When You search by language, I found that every chapter of perhaps every multilingual collection appears in the search results whether it is in that language or not, and it fills up the search results so that it is actually hard to find anything you searched for in the search results.

For example, just the other day I searched for anything that was Polish, and 60-80% of what I saw was in any other language than Polish, because it was in a multilingual collection.

If there is a way to mark individual chapters of multilingual collections so they can be searched by language individually, that would be glorious.

Or at least include multilingual collections as a single entry each in the search results, rather than getting every single chapter of every single one and filling up the search results.

That is my suggestion. Thank you for all the wonders of Librivox!

It's a known search error , not only with languages but we can't fix it easily , it will need a software re write

I see. Yes, it did not seem to be something that could be fixed easily.
