Russian Alphabeth with Transliteration Scheme

Converting Russian letters into English ones, the Cyrillic symbols are usually transcribed or transliterated. Transliteration is more commonly used because Russian is a phonetic language, which means that, in general, letters are pronounced nearly as written except a very few rules. Nevertheless, there is no international agreement among experts on a single unified system of converting Cyrillic into Latin letters. That's why modern transliteration tables differ a bit.

Below you can get acquainted with the transliteration scheme accepted on our site:
