Russian term or phrase: Заде (часть фамилии)
Как "лучше" (или более принято) писать по-английски фамилии, как правило азербайджанские, содержащие частичку "-заде", например, Javad-zadeh.
Возможные варианты: Javadzadeh; Javad-zadeh; Javad Zadeh, или даже варианты этой частицы, например, -zada. Может, какие-то из этих вариантов считаются недопустимыми? Конкретно здесь речь идет о сфере науки (научный сотрудник, публикующийся в международных англоязычных журналах).

English translation:Zadeh (no hyphen)
Explanation:
While there are notable people who use the -zadeh approach. Traditionally, the use of a hyphen in English denotes a blending of a former and new last name and was frequently used in British history to preserve a family name that otherwise would have been lost.

Now it is also frequently used when a notable person gets married and wants to retain their last name for ease of recognition.

As English has had to adapt to other traditions, that isn't always the case anymore, (for instance arabic last names with al- as a prefix.) But if it is a lesser known prefix or suffix, I would recommend doing it without the "-" to avoid causing confusion as to whether or not one of the last names is a "maiden" name.
