That's great.  I'm sorry about not noticing this before, as you can see
this only confirms that I'm unable to give a proper attention to your bug.

No, I did not mean here different languages but that some letters may need
to be transliterated in a different way depending on the context.  For
example, a letter "е" might be transliterated as "e" or "ie" or "je"
depending on whether it appears after "ж" or after another consonant
or after a vowel or a soft or hard sign etc.  All within Russian language.
(Sorry if I'm messing that, maybe what I wrote is wrong but may be correct
for another combination of letters.)

Rafal
