Changed “Music Collection” (音楽集 Ongakushu) to “Music Compilation” (音楽篇 Ongakuhen).


I think VGMdb should normalize these terms. For instance if we do a search for the term ”音楽集” on VGMdb the results will be: Ongakushu, Ongaku-shu, Ongaku Shu or Music Collection… so, what should we use?

And if we search for “音楽編” the results will be: Ongakuhen, ongaku-hen, ongaku Hen, BGM, Music Collection (which it’s a term already in use for 音楽集 in VGMdb), Music Edition, Music Compilation or simply omitted… … what should we use?

I think Music Collection (and Music Compilation) are what should be in the display titles. The romaji line should have the romaji equivalent. I usually use Ongakushu, but I honestly don't know if which of the three romaji choices you gave is more correct (or more in-line with our romanization scheme.)

I tend to think ongakushu and ongakuhen shouldn't be translated, but when ongakushu can be music collection, ongakuhen isn't that obvious
music compilation is indeed a good alternative face to music collection (in order to make the distinction between "shu" and "hen")

on another note, I'd prefer to use "ongaku hen" (not stuck) because "hen" used in tracknames is generally not stuck with its preceding noun

Thank-you.
Anyway, I think the staff should make some guideline regarding to this. Normalization is very important.

That's a different context, though. 篇 in ongakuhen means "compilation" whereas 篇 in tracknames usually means "chapter" or "version" instead.
