If Invelos says that, when we're talking about entering cast/crew into the DVD Profiler database, we're to convert É to é  E to e, then that's the only thing that matters with regards to Invelos's database.
Yes, but I just wrote that Invelos data is different than credits data, no more, no less. In fact, Francois Berleand is different than FRANCOIS BERLEAND, but I know that Invelos wants crap in his database. That is the reason I do not use this database, and do not contribute anymore to this mess.

No, that is decidedly not different

You know, I do not speak nor read Korean , so I would be a stupid person or a liar to say anything about 박찬욱.  I just believe Danae Cassandra when he says it means Park Chan-wook.
But I speak and read French, and I can say that FRANCOIS BERLEAND=François Berléand and not  Francois Berleand. But you are probably so clever that you know things about French language that French people do not know...

After all, Profiler rules have always been to enter credits as given
Not exactly. In case of capital letters, rules ask to transform them to small characters, with a "no accent" "non written rule" which often introduces differences between given credits and Invelos credits.

credit : FRANCOIS BERLEAND = François Berléand
Invelos credit : Francois Berleand , which is totally different from "credits as given"

Any help here otherwise I'll just not contribute and cast info.

You have two solutions :

1/ follow rules and contribute data that is generally unusable (no linking for same actors, linking of different actors with same name, adding spelling mistakes for accented names....). In this case, most of people who really care with correct data will simply delete those data in your contributed profiles.

2/ Use correct data, with good linking and correct spelling (for example taken from IMDb with DJ Doena's CastCrewEdit2 plugin), and keep data for you (no contribution). That is what I chose when rules where stupidly rewritten the way they are now.

As long as it works offline I don't see the problem as I do all my profiles from scratch since everything is done the way I want it to be done...

Dead or not, I haven't find anything better for my collection...

Should it be possible to simply ask to the developers if it is possible to put the field "Original title" available in the colomns ?
Yes, it is possible to ask. As for answers, I asked for some features 10 years ago and still have no answer...

I think it is impossible to have two fields for title in the collection view.

But if you prefer to have "Original title (Title)" than "Title (Original title)", it is possible with a translation file : you "translate" Title to Original Title and Original Title to Title, and of course you permute texts in the fields.

Translation files allow to customize your program and can be used to replace uninteresting fields by those you want. For example I use "Rating Details" field for "Box office results". The "problem" is that you cannot contribute on those fields, but the best way to have a clean database is to ignore totally Invelos's "database".

Did you actually have Cast checked in the export?
Yes, of course. I just tried to enter a fake variant in my database, and your tool found it. So my conclusion is that I have no variant that can be found with your tool, which is a very good news. I worked on my database to eliminate all variants, but I feared to find at least a few dozens hidden somewhere.
In fact, it is more easy to track "same actor, different names", than "same name, different actors" which is the real problem for a correct linking.
