The rules of Unified English Braille (UEB) allow a range of approaches for transcribing text in languages other than English. These methods result in braille that is appropriate for a variety of types of texts as well as for different groups of readers. Full details are given in Rules of Unified English Braille 2013, Sections 13 and 14.
This document describes three general categories, which should be suitable to cover the majority of cases. Each of these categories is described briefly, as well as the circumstances for which they are most appropriate.
The examples and some of the language used in these guidelines are taken from a document prepared by the UK Association for Accessible Formats, "Transcribing Foreign Language Material in UEB", and are used with permission.
