actually difference between these is closer to a dialect difference.
Because of funny English style romanization 'j' is a 's' sound and "ji" is either じ or ぢ with the later being from soft t-series, so d might sometimes get there as a reminder of old times or base words that have been shortened in use. Original writing uses じ, but as these are different symbols for same sound, it doesn't really matter.
R and L are mostly matter of if you are in Tokyo area or outside of it. Is same letter but some spell it as soft R and others with harsh L. Only real error is in translation being the extra L, which is utterly unacceptable.
