Transcription

Transliteration is the practice of converting a text from one writing system into another in a systematic way. In the library word is it used to describe non-Roman characters into Roman alphabet. You will find how to transcribe Non-Roman letters into English in  Transliteration Table. This link is to the scanned text of the 1997 edition of the "ALA-LC Romanization Tables: Transliteration Schemes for Non-Roman Scripts," approved by the Library of Congress and the American Library Association. These tables were developed for use when the consistent transliteration of non-Roman script (e.g. Arabic) into the Roman alphabet is needed, for example, in order to catalog non-Roman materials.
