List of Chinese exonyms for places in Russia

Recommended Posts

atitarev

Hello,

Please check my new Wikipedia article with a List of Chinese exonyms for places in Russia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_exonyms_for_places_in_Russia

It is better formatted than my previous page with a List of Chinese exonyms for places in Japan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_exonyms_for_places_in_Japan.

If you spot an incorrect transliteration or character used, please let me know. You don't need to know Russian but if you wonder, the English transliteration chosen was more phonetic, especially the use of ' (apostrophe) for letter "ь".

I am also looking for someone to publish a copy in the Chinese Wikipedia. :help

I made a few nice changes to the page.

1. This page contains only one table at the moment but I made it a separate section, more small tables to come.

2. Added links for each city/town in the English column.

3. Categorised and added see also links.

To do - comments on transliteration.

Add region (oblast') names where they are different from the centre (e.g. Yekaterinburg - Sverdlov), autonomous republics - Tatarstan, Chuvashia, etc.

Sorry, but the link doesn’t work in China mainland. However, I think maybe you can take it as your reference. Please check the link below.
