Description of the bug: 

When importing a PowerPoint from a German Presentation the default PowerPoint title is "PowerPoint-Präsentation" and not "PowerPoint Presentation" and thereby doesn't use the file name as it isn't matched. (as described in 

This makes importing presentations a real pain, as I'd have to ask our volunteers to edit the title of every presentation in Windows Explorer. Otherwise we wouldn't even know what presentation is in the schedule to select it. 

Please create an option to just use the file names with PowerPoints, otherwise EasyWorship just isn't usable for presentations!

How was your service impacted? We would only see the name PowerPoint-Präsentation in our schedule and wouldn't know which PowerPoint is what.

How was your preparation time impacted? We had to go into the detailed Properties of each PowerPoint Presentation, and change the title manually. Some last-minute presentations make this very stressful 

Step by step instructions on how to reproduce the bug:

1. Download the PowerPoint file in the attachment.

2. Import it into EasyWorship

3. Observe the same title for every presentation (can also be seen in the screenshot)

Steps to resolution: Please either make an option to always use the file name or fix the matching for the German language (you should probably think about all other languages too) by adding "PowerPoint-Präsentation" to your matching algorithm.
