Language overview

Ukrainian (українська мова, transliterated as ukrajinśka mova) belongs to the East Slavic group of the Indo-European family. Official language in Ukraine, Crimea and Transnistria, it counts about 45 million speakers. The Ukrainian language is written in a variation of the Cyrillic script counting 33 letters.

Transliteration system: ISO 9

The international standard ISO 9 establishes a system for the transliteration into Latin characters of Cyrillic characters constituting the alphabets of many Slavic and some non-Slavic languages. This system is univocal, as one character is represented by one equivalent character (by the use of diacritics), which represents the original spelling and allows for reverse transliteration (or retroconversion). The first versions of the standard were based on the scholarly system, but the latest version, ISO:1995, emphasizes the unambiguity of the transliteration instead of the phonemic representation.

Other transliteration systems for Ukrainian

The other currently supported transliteration systems for Ukrainian are: ALA-LC, and BGN/PCGN.
