Alternative spellings

Due to different interpretation in transliterations (e.g. from Cyrillic to Romanized charaters), alternative spellings are in circulation. Upon submitting a music title, please follow the guidelines below. The rationale is that we would like to keep the list as uniform as possible, and to avoid confusion on naming conventions. The spelling variation that has been used most over the years will be used in the music list. This list does not use local adapted variations (such as German use of -eva and -ova into -ewa and -owa respectively, e.g. Jelena Witrichenko or Amina Zaripowa).
