PassWord Mirror is used to print passwords on paper as a hint
Cuneiform hints use a separate program to use Latin-like symbols at :http://nutron.folmsbee.com/Alan/drums/baffle_cuneiform_69.pl
Cuneiform tests are described at:http://greekalphabet.blogspot.com/2009/06/cuneiform-test.html
Well, I'm Russian but I struggle to understand the purpose of this
(Sorry, I won't go and read the links to figure this out).
The opposite task is quite common - transliteration from Russian into
Latin, that's what Russians use
for communication in the internet when they don't have technical
capabilities to type or read in Cyrillic.
But why would one want to transliterate from Latin into Russian?
In any case, as the guys already told you there is no one-to-one
Tum asked, " But why would one want to transliterate from Latin into
Passwords can be changed from Latin into Cyrillic and printed on
paper. The paper is a hint for me to remember passwords. I put the
paper on my desk where other people can see the Cyrillic letters but
they cannot transform Cyrillic into the English passwords.
The software in the links allows people to create a paper record of
passwords in case they forget their passwords. I have 30 passwords.
Sometimes I forget one password when I need it. I walk over to the
piece of paper and I look at the Cyrillic words there. I have trained
myself to read the Cyrillic substitutions of Latin letters. I know
that all of the people around me do not know Cyrillic, Greek, or
Cuneiform. So it is safe to keep the paper record on my desk without
any of the people around me being able to get my passwords.- Hide quoted text -

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
А Б Ц Д Е Ф Г Х И Й К Л М Н О П Я Р С Т У В Ш Ч Ы З
Since there's no direct phonetic equivalency for a few letters, you'll
just have to memorize them.
Q - Я (on certain kbd layouts they are on the same key)
W - Ш (just because they look similar)
X - Ч (same key on standard QWERTY kbd)
Y - Ы (many russians transliterate Ы into latin as Y)
Other letters are OK, they _are_ phonetically similar if you take
Latin/German, not English.
