Wiktionary:Greek Transliteration

These are the rules concerning transliteration in Greek entries.

  • The transliteration of Greek letters into Roman characters is not intended to provide a phonetic representation of a word. The correct place for that is under the Pronunciation heading. It is intended as a guide for those unfamiliar with the Greek alphabet. There is a page covering Ancient Greek transliteration.
  • Equivalences have been sought amongst data produced by librarians and geographers, professional people who need to transliterate names: for use in library catalogues, in gazetteers and for the labelling of maps, places where a reproducible methodology is essential. Due to the nature of Greek spelling transliteration is often irreversible and it probably is in this case.
  • ISO 843 (1997, TR) was obtained from values shown at Eesti Keele Instituut (pdf file), other sources are shown at the foot of this page.
  • This file superseded Wiktionary:Greek transliteration/Old in October 2009.
