That said, the English name should be added as primary to the Russian books, and the transliterated titles and author name should be changed to Russian script.

That would still leave titles and descriptions to be correctly written in Russian, and to combine them with the original titles.

Thank you. Also need to combine russian editions with original ones. If I get the rights I can do it by myself and can change transliterated titles and description to russian. I've got a lot of these kind of issues for my home library.
