Also in Latin script Euro is spelled differently in different member
countries (euro, sl:evro, hu:euró, lt:euras, lv:eiro,...). However, on the
banknotes only one spelling has been adopted (which results from the fact
that the "deviant" spellers have not been part of the currency union at the
time of design of the notes).
The question is, can you list all the expressions, or do you discriminate
countries and languages?
The result is actually already known, they will only add a cyrillic line.
So both in Latin and Cyrillic script (eventually; so far only Bulgaria is
member) you'll inescapably will face discrimination.
