Diacritics are transcribed according to the original. The following transcription levels (1-3) differ in the coding and interpretation of the characters.

The transcription is based on the German or Latin character set. Characters of other alphabets (Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew, etc.) are represented by their corresponding code points using standardized encodings (Unicode), community-standardized encodings (MUFI) and encodings defined by the coordination project.
