I have a question about the pronunciation.

I come across a name of a place "Potsurnentsi", a village from Bulgaria, when translating English article.

I'd like to know how to pronounce it, because, as a English-Japanese translator, I need to translate it into Japanese letters based on its sound.

I first posted this question on Kudoz, but the moderator kindly recommended that I post it here in this forum.

(Comments in English are most helpful)

Thank you for your help.

The pronunciation of this name (written with Latin letters by the way, even though in Bulgaria the Cyrillic alphabet is used) is:

"ts" as in "tsetse fly"
"u" as in "church"

the other letters should not be a problem.

I agree with Atanas and I can add that the accent is on "u" in Bulgarian if pronunciation is concerned.
