Transliteration is the conversion from one script to another, e.g., from Latin to Kanji, Kanji to Cyrillic, Cyrillic to Hebrew, etc.  Often, releases will be transliterated for the benefit of people who enjoy the music but cannot read the original script.  While transliteration to the Latin script is the most common, it is not the only possibility.
 
 
== Capitalization for Transliterations ==
 
 
Transliterated releases should be capitalized and otherwise conform to the rules of the transliteration system used.  This is only relevant when translating to a script that has a capitalization concept: Armenian, Cyrillic, Deseret, Georgian, Greek, Latin, and Roman.
 
 
Some languages have specific transliteration capitalization guidelines:
 
* Chinese: [[Capitalization Standard Chinese]]
 
* Hebrew: [[Capitalization Standard Hebrew]]
 
* Japanese: [[Capitalization Standard Japanese]]
 
* Yiddish: [[Capitalization Standard Yiddish]]
 
 
For any other languages:
 
# If the text is being transliterated to a script '''without''' a capitalization concept, there is of course no need to change capitalization.
 
# If the text is being transliterated to a script which '''does''' have a capitalization concept,
 
:# If the original text was in a script '''without''' a capitalization concept, only the first letter of each sentence and proper nouns should be capitalized.
 
:# If the original text was in a script which '''does''' have a capitalization concept,
 
::# If the original text's language has a [[Capitalization Standard]] guideline, keep the capitalization the same in the new script.
 
::# If there is not a [[Capitalization Standard]] guideline for the original text's language, only the first letter of each sentence and proper nouns should be capitalized.
