Russian to Turkish translations [Non-PRO]
Tech/Engineering / Spelling of place name in project
Russian term or phrase: Джейхан
The translation I am working on is Russian into English, but it refers to the Баку-Джейхан project (the second place name apparently being in Turkey)and gives its own transliteration of these names into Latin script as Baku-Ceyhan. One would normally expect Джейхан to transliterate as Jeyhan, but are they correct in spelling it as Ceyhan in this case? Is that how it is spelt in Turkish?
