How should I record a name when a different alphabet was the "native alphabet" of the person?
For example, Polish, Czech and Russian letters aren't well represented in Latin (modern portuguese) alphabet. Recording names, places, and so on, using just "my alphabet" could make it harder for someone looking for informations about my family.
And it gets worse when we're dealing with my wife's parents, since his father is japanese...
How can I deal with that? What approaches have you used ?
