Pronunciation of Words of Foreign Origin

How do you pronounce words of foreign origin in your languages? Do you use the orthography of the language of origin or that of the one you're speaking? What about words and especially place names that have identical spellings in both languages, like France (English/French), Berlin (English/German), and Buenos Aires (English/Spanish)? What about when one or more sounds don't exist in one of the languages?
