"Were you ever in...." has the same meaning as "Have you ever been in.... " and is, in fact, a more literal translation. I believe it should be accepted.

I think I'll have to be mousing over Kazakhstan for quite a while on this question! I know it's an English word, but it's hard to spell! I want to put an h after the first K for some reason.

    Actually, in Kazakh both 'k' and 'kh' are the same sound: Қазақстан (Qazaqstan). The English name is borrowed from Russian, not from Kazakh.
