Default Translation Search

I added a new section on the advanced search panel that searches through all of the tracklist translations for a given scrap of text (japanese or any other alternate language), and presents them all on one page. This should help greatly with translating all of these Touhou doujins (which is what I needed it for). It'll also help in 'unifying' some of our tracklist translations.

Interesting! I'm sure I'll be trying that feature out the next time I have a new JP tracklist to look for translations of.

Very cool feature, it's quite interesting to see how some stuff is translated in different ways.

I haven't tested it much but there seems to be a bug where some tracklist won't show the translation even if they have one. For example search this: 旅立ち, 3 results are blank.

Btw, would it be possible to add the album's title as a tooltip (to avoid cluttering the results page) in the link's "title" attribute?

Ah, good catch. That's not actually a bug, but a problem with those albums. There are still a few albums that don't have any tracklist set as the "default" tracklist, so I fixed it by setting the English tracklist as default for those 2 albums.

Also, I added the title in the tooltip.
