Cyprus Translation Style Guide

Flag_of_Cyprus.svg

Full name: Republic of Cyprus. The long form may be used when contrasted with northern Cyprus, the ‘Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’. However, since the EU and its Member States do not recognise the latter and the Republic of Cyprus joined the EU on behalf of the whole island, ‘Cyprus’ is adequate for most purposes.

Official languages: Greek and Turkish (although the latter is not an EU official language). For transliterating Greek, see the table (Annex 1) in the English Style Guide.
