Renaming

Renaming using the file name's fields

Given files names such as ./LL-{codesLang}-{speaker}-{word}.wav such as ./LL-Q150_(fra)-Tsaag_Valren-zèbre.wav  :

mkdir -p ./new                                # create dir
for file in ./LL-*.wav;
do 
   isolang=$(basename "$file" | cut -d- -f2 | cut -d_ -f2 | tr -d "()");     # using "-" as split, select field 4 : "zèbre", trim parenthesis
   key=$(basename "$file" | cut -d- -f4 | tr -d ".wav");            # using "-" as split, select field 4 : "zèbre", trim extension
   cp "$file" ./new/"$isolang"-"$key".wav;                          # ./new/fra-zèbre.wav
done

Renaming using metadata

IMPORTANT: This example process a SWAC Recorder's file. LinguaLibre's files metadata are in the cloud : on the audio's, speakers and languages pages.

avconv -i ./cmn-jiāoliú.flac 2>&1                       # print out metadata of $file, for some formats only
