What is the process for entering names in non-Latin scripts (e.g. Cyrillic)? Is the page title itself transliterated? If so, which transliteration scheme should be used?

http://genealogy.wikia.com/wiki/Genealogy:Language_policy#Non-Latin_page_names. Did you search for "non-Latin"? — Robin Patterson (Talk) 05:52, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
I stupidly searched for Cyrillic, foreign characters, etc. - Nibblonian 06:42, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Not stupid. "Cyrillic" has just given me about 15 hits, with the first few not seeming to have any relevance to your question. Daunting. Anyway, fire ahead with them but give us redirects where practicable; I doubt if there's anyone here who minds which transliteration scheme is used, but if there is they can tell you. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 08:05, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
