Maybe it's because of the complicated pronunciation that in foreign countries people usually translate the name of the club. Never heard an English comentator saying Crvena zvezda, always Red Star Belgrade. The same happens in Spain or Latin America, where they use the Spanish name, Estrella Roja de Belgrado. Here in Galicia, like in Portugal and Brazil, it's known as Estrela Vermelha de Belgrado.

Wow, now it makes sense. I thought this two names reflect two different serbian teams. Thanks for the infos!
