    How do you read them?

    When I read "named Pierwsza Małopolska Fabryka Naczyń Emaliowanych i Wyrobów Blaszanych "Rekord"", I read them as "named blah blah blah record".

    Is it acceptable?

    And how you?


    Context:

    As an opportunistic businessman, Schindler was one of many who sought to profit from the German invasion of Poland in 1939. He gained ownership from a bankruptcy court of an idle enamelware factory in Kraków,[3] named Pierwsza Małopolska Fabryka Naczyń Emaliowanych i Wyrobów Blaszanych "Rekord",[7] which he renamed Deutsche Emaillewaren-Fabrik or DEF (location).[8] With the help of his German-speaking Jewish accountant Itzhak Stern,[3] Schindler obtained around 1,000 Jewish forced labourers to work there.[1]

    Do you know how to pronounce correctly "Pierwsza Małopolska Fabryka Naczyń Emaliowanych i Wyrobów Blaszanych"? If it is hard to read, just read them as "blah blah blah"?

    If you like. This is not a question about the English language.
