Yes, I'm on CONLANG -- didn't mean to reply to only you instead of the list. Transliteration from Cyrillic to Latin characters -- there's no standard and satisfactory scheme, and I'm sure someone will disagree with mine. I'm using the ' to represent the "soft sign" (a separate letter that indicates palatalization of the preceding consonant). -Tone
