  -> Thank you! :-)

agree  Kurt Porter: Would district or county be ok here, vice transliteration?
2 mins
  -> Not sure. Thanks!

agree  GaryG: I share Kurt's concern that "uyezd" would not be understood by most people who read the translation
21 mins
  -> Thanks!

agree  Jeff Skinner: I share the same concern; two dictionaries (Oxford and Katzner) disagree whether it should be 'district' (Katzner) or 'uyezd' (Oxford). Perhaps translate it in parentheses, or a footnote, the first time it occurs, then leave untranslated from there?

agree  Kirill Semenov: in a literary context, I think `district' or `county' would be better, but if it's official, transliteration is probably preferred
