I understand the point of these pages are to show off IB languages, but please use only simple Latin characters for page titles! It simplifies searches and the like. Plus anyone that can't decode / read non-Latin alphabets will at least be able read the page title. Thank you! Elemtilas 03:26, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

The page can be easily accessed via the link from the Main Page. And it is better latinizing the whole page than latinizing only the title. Mohatma369 05:07, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
I think in this particular case there's nothing wrong with a page title in Russian. Obviously, we avoid using Cyrillics and other non-Latin scripts in the titles of normal articles, but in the case of Main Page translations I don't see the point of using another orthography than the one the language in question is using. I would look bad, and anyway, the way it's not it is working. Thanks a lot for the translation, Mohatma! I've been thinking about doing a Russian version myself for quite a long time, but alas, my Russian is far too weak for that. —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 09:37, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
I agree with Jan on this one. We're showing off the langues of IB and the various scripts used to write them. Is it really necessary to latinize them, considering that people who speak these languages would already know their scripts. thus really negating the purpose of latinizing it. p.s Mohatma, do you have any good resources for learning Ukrainian? Been trying to find some for ages! Geofism 11:25 Fri 13th March (AEDST)
OK, I sit overruled -- but I would only like to clarify that I didn't want Mohatma to latinise the whole page. Just the page title! Elemtilas 03:17, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
I understood you, Padraic...and I think setting up at least a latinized redirect page wouldn't be a bad idea BoArthur 14:36, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
