  5. Toitsu says:

    Why do they write Hitler as Gitler in Russia? I understand Gamburger, but names too??

    • Andrei says:

      why do tou wrute Russia, not Rossija?
      why do tou wrute Moscow, not Moskva?
      etc…

      • Toitsu says:

        That is not excatly the same thing. Moskva is Russian city and it has translation to many other languages as do has Rossija, but i have never seen person names to be translated. Of couse Russians do it as they want and that is it. Just got my attention as for the pure interest to the language. :)

        • anon says:

          Because of the same thing you call Japan Japan, we call it Yaponiya and it’s in fact called Nihon/Nippon.

          • Toitsu says:

            Actually, here(Finland) we use Japani and Nipponi. Yet again it is just a translation to another language. Countries and cities most often are translated. In first post i more or less meant that why is one letter changed completely different on people name. I see it in other names also as Hannibal/Gannibal Lecter and B also as V but is this because cyrillic V is written as B? Barbara, Varvara?

            But never mind! This conversation probably does not belong on this site.. :)

            • anon says:

              I think it’s because of the way any language treats foreign words, converting them to sound like a native ones. We don’t have much words starting with “Ha-” here, so the foreign ones get automatically converted to sound “Gah-” because that sounds familiar.
              The same thing as with foreigner’s accent: we’re just used to use one set of sounds and try to express everything in them.

              • Latvian power says:

                Adolfs Hitlers as we say. Pippi Långstrump not Peppi Pitkätossu as you say.

                • anon says:

                  We call her Peppi Dleenny Chulok here in Russia. The second part is just a translation of “Longstocking”. Fun how things sound differently in different languages.

    • whoever comes says:

      because of the consonant shift
      h->g
      e.g., humor->гумор(gumor), although now it’s spelled like юмор (jumor)

    • zax says:

      It is interresting (and slightly annoying) that Russians use G instead of H in many foreign names (both personal or names of cities). For example: Gomer (Homer), Gaaga (Haag (Hague in English)), Gannover (Hannover), etc.
      But domestic names are written with H. Like Helsinki, Harkov, Harbin.
      The fact is that these cities are now in Finland, Ukraine or China, but their names are apparently “domestic” to Russian language.

      • Ivan Mikhailov says:

        In old Russian books Herbert is transliterated “as is”, now it’s Gerbert, so H is slowly replaced with G . Less noticeable is, say, Japaneeze sound that is somewhat between “s” and “sh”: Hiroshima in English is Hirosima in Russian, so both spellings are not 100% correct but they wrong different ways.
