If the name is difficult to pronounce, for the English speakers at least, it's translated. Example: Medecins sans frontieres becomes Doctors Without Borders.
Red Cross becomes Cruz Roja among Spanish speakers I know. Maybe the rule changes for charities, because Blue Cross heath insurance is Blue Cross for Spanish speakers too.
Me ayuda si corrige mis errores. Gracias.
