This study is situated in the field of contrastive linguistics, namely, morphophonology. The aim of the paper is to examine the ways in which transcription of phonemes from Romanian into Serbian language is being realized in proper and geographical names. The analyzed corpus is based on literary translations. As both Serbian and Romanian language have phonetic, i.e. shallow orthography, and show a high degree of similarity of phonology systems, it is expected that transcription will not pose a lot of challenges. Previous research in the field of transcription from Romanian into Serbian offers some rules and recommendations. However, we find that the analyzed data indicates certain biases and problems that appear on the practical level, when it comes to transcription of proper and geographical names. Thus, the contrastive research of transcription from Romanian into Serbian shows high level of diversity regarding the solutions that the translators chose. Our paper will focus on the theoretical and practical problems posed by the transcription of the Romanian diphthong /ea/ into Serbian. We will analyse the suggestions for rendering the diphthong that have been put forward so far, taking into account both theoretically-oriented orthographical norms, and solutions preferred in practice by translators and other users of Serbian. We will finally address the rendering of /ea/ after sonorants /l/ and /n/, pleading for a change towards simplicity and consistency in transcription norms. Keywords: constrastive linguistics, transcription, Romanian Language, Serbian Language, diphtong /ea/
