      Description

      Hello,

      The BBC has started using the Alias table, to get the English variant of an artist name, if available.
      However if the main name for an artist was in English in the first place, it makes sense to not even look at the aliases.

      We have had problems with an alternate name for an English Language artist being given, but which should not have been the main name.

      Please can you add a language to the main name of an artist?

      Thanks,

      nick.
