    Re: Pope Francis

    Russian:
    папа римский Франциск /papa rimskiy frantsisk/

    (you have to specify "rimskiy" (of Rome); simply "papa" would be "daddy".

    Finnish:

    paavi Franciscus

    (We stopped translating the names of new popes and monarchs at the beginning of the 2000s, so we use the Latin version of the Pope's name.)

    Hebrew: The Israeli media is not decisive yet. I guess that eventually the name will be pronounced Frantziscus. We usually follow the Latin names for Popes, and c followed by i/e is tz.

    Re: Pope Francis

    There are two main transliterations of Francis in Chinese:
    方济/方濟 - Mandarin: fang ji/Cantonese: fong zai - from English Francis
    方济各/方濟各 - Mandarin: fang ji ge/Cantonese: fong zai gok - from Latin Franciscum

    Pope is 教宗 (Mandarin: jiao zong/Cantonese: gaau zung) or 教皇 (Mandarin: jiao huang/Cantonese: gaau wong)
    No duden en corregirme. ¡Muchas gracias!

    Just a minor correction in Perseas' IPA notation, it should be:

    /'papas fraɲ'ɟiskos/

    Both [ɲ] & [ɟ] are palatal
