Please note: Quechua is a spoken language and not a written language. Only since about the early 80's has there been an attempt to orthogonalize spellings. You may see these words written very, very differently, i.e. Yachay as "Llachay". "K" and "Q" can be used interchangeably, and 'J' and 'H' can appear for 'Q'. Words can be spelled with and without the glottal stop marker,  ' ,  etc. Be flexible, be wise :-) Sound it out to winkle out additional spellings. My spellings are not the only "correct" spellings :-)
