    Russian language uses the russian alphabet only. If you want do write a russian sentence with english alphabet, it is a transcription (which doesn't reproduce a pronunciation), but not a translation.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Actually Olya, you mean a transliteration.
    Transcription does reproduce pronunciation.

    Moskva - transliteration.
    Ma-skvah - transcription.

    Ok, a transliteration.
    Actually I meant a transliteration... or a transcription..., I just wanted to say that something in English letters is not a translation into Russian.
