In my own words, transliteration is taking a non-Latin character set and
rendering it in Latin characters. We're so used to it that we don't
think about it, but every time you see a reference to "Beijing" you are
looking at a transliteration, since the name is actually written in
Chinese characters. In most library catalogs, transliteration of
non-Latin data into Latin is the norm, although that may begin to change
with the advent of Unicode.
