EMAIL TO THE EDITOR To the Editor of the Baltic Times.

  • 2015-02-05

All Latvian newspapers, with the exception of The Baltic Times, which is of course printed in English, continually change foreign names, namely Politicians/Celebrities, to Latvian spelling,  I  wonder if  any of your readers can enlighten me as to the reason for this. It is not  a new phenomena:  my late  Husband who was Latvian also complained about it.
I  feel that any Latvian  wishing to travel  or work  in Europe  would  be totally confused.  A name is  a  name  and  should not  be ‘ Latvianized’.
