    The transcription of the word SKOGA.

    How do you read the name SKOGA? Today I was asked how to transcribe it. I don't know if the word is Polish or not, but if the brand is known in Poland you may know the way it's pronounced. So, if you know, please, write it in Russian.

    Never heard the word SKOGA, but it would be pronounced as СКОГА without doubt. If you meant SKODA (the car) however, then it's СКОДA.

    The car is known as «Шкода», btw.

    No, I didn't mean the Czech Škoda (Шкода). I know this word and even used to live near one of their factories.

    I meant this one:

    И я не вижу. Но хотелось бы знать, как оно расшифровывается, если это аббревиатура, и из какого оно языка. Тогда была бы уверена на все сто. I need the transcription, not the transliteration.
    Anyway, thanks for your answers.

    but both, trancription and tranliteration in this case would look exactly the same.
    As for the abbreviation, I've looked, but couldn't find it, I doubt it's from Polish, though.

    Seems to be a label from a (originally) Danish food company. So maybe it's a Danish word.

    In Danish, Skoga would mean "forest"

    Look what I found on Wiki, maybe it is a Russian word after all?

    SKOGA was a joint Sino-Soviet airline, based in Beijing, China, which operated from 1950 to 1954. The name SKOGA (Russian: СКОГА)
