Dubbed movies in various languages

Hi, I need to discuss a problem that concerns mainly animated feature films or animated series. These films/series for children are often dubbed into various languages. Therefore the soundtrack songs get plenty of language versions.


For example: there are over 40 adaptations of Let It Go from the Disney movie Frozen. (However, they were released separately from the movie which is not that common.)


The problem is: there are many animated movies with songs that were dubbed (e.g. into Czech), but were not released apart from the movie broadcast. Should I create a separate broadcast for each language version? That sounds like overkill to me. Or is there any way we could group such language versions into one broadcast?


I only have one idea: adding a new feature of adding/showing "language versions of a broadcast" (with appropriate titles and premiere dates).


For example this work: Mně se zdá, že svítá nám has no original. I do know the names of the Czech performers, but as no Czech soundtrack was released, I don't know how to add such performance. Thanks for your suggestions.

Hi dudek I probably would create a new broadcast for each new adaptation, unless of course the soundtrack came out first.
