ISO 233

The international standard ISO 233 establishes a system for romanization of Arabic and Syriac. It has been supplemented by ISO 233-2 in 1993; the table below shows the consonants for the Arabic language. ISO 233-2:1993 is an ISO schema for the simplified transliteration of Arabic characters into Roman characters; this transliteration system was adopted as an amendment to ISO 233:1984. It is used in library context, was introduced because ISO 233 was not meeting the indexing purposes, which are essential for the consistency of library catalogs. According to ISO 233-2, Arabic words are vocalized prior to romanization. ISO 233-2 is used in French libraries and in North African libraries, is recommended by ISSN for establishing key titles when cataloguing serials. ISO 233-3:1999 is dedicated to "Persian language – Simplified transliteration". ISO/R 233 is an earlier standard, withdrawn.
