    Abstract

    The definitive transliteration guide for anyone who transliterates words, names, titles, or text from a non-Roman script into the Roman script. Provides the most up to date ALA-LC transliteration schemes for even obscure scripts. Includes 61 transliteration tables covering more than 145 languages and dialects written in non-Roman scripts. The first single source for accurate, up to date LC romanization practice. Supersedes all ALA-LC romanization tables previously issued. Organized for practical use.

  • This page shows the modern descendants of the ancient Brahmi script, in chart form, so that each character can be compared across scripts. The page includes scripts from North and South India, South-East Asia, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

  • Pickers allow you to quickly create phrases in a script by clicking on Unicode characters arranged in a way that aids their identification. The phrase appears at the bottom of the screen and you can easily cut and paste the result into your own document. They're written in XHTML with a small amount of JavaScript.

    This picker includes all the characters in the Unicode Khmer and Khmer Symbols blocks (in the default panel).

  • These notes are being compiled while I explore the Khmer script as used for the Khmer language. They may be updated from time to time. The page lists the Unicode characters used to represent Khmer text, and briefly describes their use. It starts with short notes on general script features and discussions about which Unicode characters are most appropriate when there is a choice.

  • Richard Ishida has created a chart to show which features (for example, combining characters, ligatures, case, baseline etc.) apply to a number of writing systems. The characteristics described are based on the exemplar character lists in the CLDR. The chart is intended to give a basic idea of which writing systems require what types of feature support.

  • This is a rudimentary page presenting the four major Brahmi-derived scripts of South East Asia: Myanmar (Burmese), Lao, Thai, and Khmer. These are presented in chart form arranged by character, so that the letterforms can be compared across scripts. A Latin transcription is provided as a pronunciation guide.

  • A character picker is a tool that allows users to quickly create phrases in a script by clicking on Unicode characters which have been arranged in a way that aids their identification. This is one such tool, which covers a number of scripts including Arabic, Bengali, Devanagari, Gurmukhi, Hebrew, Lao, Tamil, and Thai, amongst others. The user selects the required script from a panel on the right, and the characters for that script are presented to them, from which they can select the characters they need. As characters are selected, the phrase appears at the bottom of the screen and can be cut and pasted into other documents.
    Character pickers are likely to be most useful to those who don't know a script well enough to use the native keyboard. The arrangement of characters also makes it much more useable than a regular character map utility.
