Guidance: Romanisation systems

Updated: Added Rusyn romanisation.

Guidance on BGN/PCGN romanisation systems jointly agreed by the US Board on Geographic Names and PCGN for the romanisation of non Roman script geographical names.

These are the romanisation systems and tables of correspondences currently approved by PCGN and BGN. The date on each system is that of its joint adoption by BGN and PCGN. The systems and tables are regularly reviewed and all those listed here are in current use.
