Thread: Does Shiprush Stamps have support for foreign characters?

  1. #1
    I would assume this is an issue with Cyrillic characters... When they download from the ebay store, we go from something along the lines of

    Антон Семилетов
    Севастопольская д. 84, кв. 33
    Саранск Мордовия 430033
    Russian Federation

    to

    ********** ******************
    ****************************** **. 84, ****. 33
    **************


    Is there a fix of any sort for this? Mail sent out with these characters ends up being returned (I wonder why, hahaha). Attached is a screenshot illustrating the problem.

    Ouch.

    We agree this is a problem, but there is no solution, as the USPS , FedEx and UPS shipping labels do not allow non latin letters.

    In other words, I need to figure out an Anglocized version of the customer's name and then input that?

    Correct.

    All shipping systems would impose the same burden, I am afraid, as the labels cannot accommodate non latin letters.

    But it is easy... just ask Google Translate: http://translate.google.com/

    Which gives you:

    Anton Semiletov
    Sevastopol, 84, Apt. 33
    Mordovia Saransk 430 033
    Russian Federation

    Try it!

    (I should add that I read Russian, and can tell you that this is the correct transliteration.)

    Thank you for addressing this (I already found a Transliteration tool, but it's good to know Google Trans is accurate)
