it could be very nice to me if somebody could give me the names of these cities in chinese: columbus, ohio; virginia beach, virginia; kansas city, missouri; colorado springs, colorado; baton rouge, louisiana; st. petersburg, florida; corpus christi, texas. i also have a question: does in names of cities such as kansas city or virginia beach, words "beach" and city" are translated tan1 and cheng2 or, for example, "piche" and "jiti"? thanks in advance.

columbus 哥伦布, ohio 俄亥俄, virginia beach 维吉尼亚海滩, kansas city 堪萨斯城, missouri 密苏里, colorado springs 科罗拉多泉, baton rouge 巴吞鲁日, louisiana 路易斯安那, st.petersburg 圣彼得堡, florida 佛罗里达, corpus christi 科珀斯克里斯提, texas 德克萨斯

Well, about ur question, i do think those name like kansas city can be translated to cheng2, but for the others like virginia beach, and colorado springs, im not so sure then, cos some similar ones like baton rouge and corpus christi, i can find their transliterations from google translate.

Texas can be abbreviated as 德州 and I think Florida as 佛州 (but not really sure)

"City" in such context is usually "市" (shi4).
