I was trying to search on all the fields, and put "Hungarian" as a search term, but the system returns zero results. I resorted tagging the books 'hungarian', but this is extra work, and should not be needed, since the language of the book should also be in its record. It certainly is on the ones I manually entered, for example Hrabal Könyve.

Any suggestions?

I just put the language as a tag; since I'm adding tags anyway, it's not really any extra work. But if you don't want to do that, you should probably post a query in the Talk section or write Tim directly -- it'll get dealt with faster. Good luck!

Well, I found how I can see ALL the books whose original language is Hungarian: http://www.librarything.com/language.php?l=hun. Now I only need to combine this 'l' parameter with my catalog, http://www.librarything.com/catalog.php?view=davidorban&l=hun... and it doesn't work. But I am one step ahead! :)
