Transliteration of Russian Cyrillic into English follows the U.S. Library of Congress standard with the exception of instances when that standard does not conform to familiar transliterations seen in public sources. Some exceptions are: the Cyrillic "e" and "ë" are transliterated as "e" for both characters; "й" and "и" are transliterated into the letter "i". Other deviations noted are, “Koretsky” and “Koretskii”, both used on the site as well as “Kiev” over its variant, “Kyiv”.


The majority of posters in the collection have been translated into English. Where 'translation pending' is seen on the website, this indicates the poster has yet to be translated or that a full translation has yet to be completed. The site visitor may occasionally see the term 'partial translation only' on posters where text was atypically long. Poster thanks following people who provided English language translations for this website: Maria Cantarin, MA; Aaron T. Hale-Dorrell, PhD; Yevgeny Fedotkin, PhD; Mart Jalakas, MD; Masha Kowell, PhD; Susan Pezzino, MA.
