Romanization refers to the process of transliterating words from a non-Latin script into the Latin alphabet (AKA the Roman alphabet). Each language typically has several different Romanization systems that may give [[SpellMyNameWithAnS different results]]. Romanization is particularly necessary for names, loanwords and special vocabulary that doesn't have an equivalent in the target language.
