    I think that the name of anything that is related to dzongkha should be made in dzongkha and the alias or translation to be done in within brackets. e.g. Tara Lhadhen Zhingkham Lhakhang should have been printed or typed as Dema Lhadhen Zhingkham Lhakhang ((Tara Lhadhen Zhingkham Lhakhang..(translate in the required language)). That way for those who are knowledgeable in dzongkha and chhoeykey will be easier to understand and sound correct and don’t have to think or guess what tara is, for example.
    Just a thought.
