Help on the Library of Congress Transliteration System

In this project the phonetically based Library of Congress system of transliterating Russian Cyrillic has been simplified in two respects: no ligatures are used for the digraphs TS (Ц), IU (Ю), and IA (Я), and all elements of the transliteration are capitalized, e.g., Щ is rendered as SHCH instead of Shch.

А = A Б = B В = V Г = G Д = D Е = E
Ж = ZH З = Z И = I Й = I К = K Л = L
М = M Н = N О = O П = P Р = R С = S
Т = T У = U Ф = F Х = KH Ц = TS Ч = CH
Ш = SH Щ = SHCH Ъ = ” Ы = Y Ь = ’ Э = E
Ю = IU Я = IA
