lethe | 13731 comments I regularly come across Slavic authors where the profile in Cyrillic is the primary one, with the English/international version of the name added as secondary to translated editions.

This is the wrong way around. The English/international name should be primary on all editions, with Cyrillic and other spellings secondary on the editions that have them on the cover.

1. Юрій Щербак (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... )
should switch places with Yuri Shcherbak: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

(Please take care to retain the info in the author profile.)

Thanks in advance.

lethe | 13731 comments 3. Кира Сошинская (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... )
Kira Soshinskaya (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... )

NB The only non-Cyrillic edition on Goodreads is this Estonian one: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... , which lists her name as Kiira Sošinskaja in the description.

I don't know if there are English-language works with her name in existence.

There should not be authors in Cyrillic credited on this Estonian book. Only their English/international and Estonian names should be there.

The Cyrillic profiles should be checked and where applicable, corrected to secondary (f.e. https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... / https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... )

Thanks in advance.

Ekaterina Okuneva (okuneshku) | 3219 comments #6 done with this particular edition, working on Cyrillic profiles of these authors.

upd: profiles of authors of Diogenese latern are corrected, latin names are primary. Please let me know if I miss something.
