For Tatar, at least, it's OK to use eng as far as I can see.
Official usage is n with tilde. See, e.g., the language law of 1999,
which is available online and which uses n with tilde throughout:
However, I was in Tatarstan early this year, and signs etc. frequently
show inverted e and n with descender where the law would call for a with
diaeresis and n with tilde. It's pretty much of an alphabet in transition.
