Which "S" letter to use when transliterating to Hebrew? June 9, 2012 4:32 PMSubscribe
When you transliterate from English to Hebrew, how do you determine the "S" for names?
If your name was Sandra, Sabrina, Sachi, or something that really has no Hebrew equivalent, how do you decide which letter to put in front? Is it more common to use a Samech or a Sin? Is there a standard convention for this, or do you just pick one?
