Tested on 



There are two identical lines visible for the Tatar language
in the screenshot, both look exactly like this:

    Tatarça (Urıs Patşahlıq)

Which seems to mean “Tatar (Russian Federation)”

(http://www.alumnieeni.com/ru_en_name.asp lists “Urıs Patşahlıq”
as meaning “Russian Federation” in Tatar)

When selecting the upper of the two lines, continuing,
logging out of Gnome once and logging in again to make
the language change come into effect, I can see that the


was chosen. Which is Tatar in Latin script:

    $ LANG=tt_RU.UTF-8@iqtelif date
    Com Sin  6 13:00:25 CEST 2013

When I select the lower of these two lines and do the same,
I find the resulting locale to be:


Which is Tatar in Cyrillic script:

    $ LANG=tt_RU.UTF-8 date
    Җом Сен  6 13:01:34 CEST 2013

The list of languages shown by gnome-initial-setup lists
language endonyms, i.e. the name of a language is written
in that language itself.


    Tatarça (Urıs Patşahlıq)

can only be correct for the tt_RU.utf8@iqtelif,
for the tt_RU.UTF-8 it should be written in Cyrillic script.
Probably like this:

    татар теле (усия Федерациясе)

First letter missiing here, cut&past error, should have been:

      татар теле (Русия Федерациясе)

Rui Matos told me the translations come from the iso-codes package.

Therefore, I reported this upstream bug:

thanks a lot for the bug report. This should be fixed now and will be part of the next release. Please note that an automatic transliteration of the latin script into cyrillic has been added. If this results in strange or wrong words, please do not hesitate to open another bug report.

It is fixed in iso-codes-3.49 on Fedora 20:

$ rpm -q iso-codes
$ rpm -ql iso-codes | grep tt
