An example: I just tried looking for Tsukigakirei after MyAnimeList told me it was on CR. I tried searching for Tsuki ga Kirei, As the Moon, So Beautiful, and The Moon is Beautiful, and found nothing until I did a google search for the title here. I see anidb has Tsukigakirei (with no spaces) listed as the official English title, but nowhere else. Many titles have different English or romaji names, and I think it would make it a lot easier for users to find specific titles if you could somehow tag titles with these search terms.

This isn't intended to dismiss your suggestion--I think it's a good one. But, as a workaround to cases where it's not an entirely different title but an alternate spelling, (like in the Tsukigakirei example), using the Alphabetical "view all" list can be useful. Just remember that CR alphabetizes shows starting with "The" under "T" so it's often helpful to browse that section of the list too.
