I use XBMC to sort my movies. All the movies are named using their original (mostly english) title and I would like it to show the titles in german.

I already set XBMC language to german and rescanned the movie library, but the titles are still shown in english.

How can I achieve this?

If it is an English movie then the title will show in English since that is the proper name of it. If you want the movie title to show in German then you will have to manually edit the nfo file. In between the <title></title> type the German version of the title and then save the file.

Here is additional information about the NFO files.

Per Jack's suggestion you could also use a media manager program such as one of the following:

Here's the application that I used to edit the information for my movies in XBMC, granted I'm using it with a MySQL database. mediaelch.de –  Jack Jul 22 '13 at 18:08

You can open the nfo file directly via notepad and edit the title without having to use any other program –  Linger Jul 22 '13 at 18:09
    
Linger, that is true. But I was just suggesting something that I use to create the NFO files to begin with. Editing one with Notepad is easy enough, but if you're going to mass-edit them or create a bunch of them, a purpose-built application is much easier. –  Jack Jul 22 '13 at 18:29
