Udmurt (удмурт кыл, transliterated as udmurt kyl), also known as Votyak, its name traditionally given by the Russians, belongs to the Uralic languages family, and more precisely to the Finno-Ugric languages family. Co-oficial language alongside Russian in Udmurtia, or the Udmurt Republic, located to the west of the Ural Mountains, the Udmurt language counts about 550,000 speakers. It is written in its present Cyrillic orthography since 1905.

The BGN/BGCN is a virtual committee formed by the United States Board on Geographic Names (BGN), which is a United States federal body, and the Permanent Committee on Geographical Names (PCGN), an independent inter-departmental body for the use of the British government. Both are aimed at establishing and maintaining uniform usage of geographic names, and their standards have been agreed upon by both party as a joint adoption.
