English v. Non-English Legal Name

If the organization is based in a non-English-speaking country, ask the organization if they have an official legal name in English (they often do). If they do, use that name for “organization name” and place their non-English legal name under “Name in Source Language”. If an organization does not have an English legal name AND its legal name is not written using Latin script, transliterate its name (ask the organization if they have a standard transliteration) for the “Organization Name” field and write the organization’s name in its original script and language in “Name in Source Language”. The name in“Organization Name” should always be in Latin script.
