I've never come across "cris" personally. It wouldn't make the same sound.

but when we are asked to translate belt it is "cris"

I have never heard the word *cris and nor has my dictionary. It might have been a typo that has now been corrected.

Why crios instead of cris?

Crios is the 'correct' spelling, but it is not a word I grew up with in a solidly vernacular Gaelic community.

I would be interested to know what word you did use.

I think I used cris but don't even remember why I thought that was correct.
