Transliteration according to the BGN/PCGN system

The standard developed in the United States, later also adopted in the United Kingdom, is used for the translation of geographical names. In fact, it consolidated the standard practice of the transliteration of geographical names among native English speakers. The original version of the standard uses the diacritical mark ё. There is also an unofficial version without diacritics.

There are no replacement options for this transliteration type.
