Help! I need to do a birthday cake for my boss' wife (she's from Russia)with very short notice. The cake needs to have her name on it in Russian, but I have no idea what her American name looks like in Russian b/c their alphabet is totally different. Her American name is Deanna. If anyone can offer help, I would reeeeally appreciate it. Thank you!!

Those 2 links may help some, as would I think most translation websites, since it is not a letter-for-letter translation.

I had to do Japanese characters once and messed it up royally...I got slightly better at searching for the correct way to translate.

I believe it would be

ÐÐÐHHÐ
DEANNA

Keep in mind I haven't used Russian in 11 years, but I am 98% sure this is correct.

HTH!
