Fundamentals of the Transcription

The text is always transcribed true to the original in the Unicode format (encoding in UTF-8) of the Unicode standards valid at the time of the transcription. How to use specific encodings is explained in the respective transcription level.

Characters that are not displayed on the keyboard are written either
  • as a Unicode hexadecimal entity
  • or as a sign.
Mixing different Unicode spellings should be avoided. Specific transcription rules are defined for individual cases.
