Is it possible to create genre for different languages eg
 
MediaBrowser.Resources / images / imagesbyname / genres / us / Action & Adventure
MediaBrowser.Resources / images / imagesbyname / genres / dk / Action & Adventure
MediaBrowser.Resources / images / imagesbyname / genres / de / Action & Adventure
MediaBrowser.Resources / images / imagesbyname / genres / nl / Action & Adventure

I think it is more expensive from point of view to resources. Better have a generic substrate images that would be language-invariant. And text overlay (label) with a localized genre name on them.

Currently TVDb provides only English genres. TMDb provides localized genres, if name and overview of the item are translated to your language, if not, then are English. Of course, not all items are translated.

 

In result, you had two genre sets: English and localized (Note that above the red line are English names, Russian names are below. "боевик" duplicates "Action", "вестерн" duplicates "Western" etc.):

@Luke, in such a situation it would be better to take on internet-providers only English names of genres that we could translate in the editor and get rid of duplicates.
