From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The THDL Simplified Phonetic Transcription of Standard Tibetan (or THDL Phonetic Transcription for short) is a system for the phonetic rendering of the Tibetan language.

It was created by David Germano and Nicolas Tournadre and was published on 2003-12-12. It is essentially a simplified form of the Tournadre Phonetic System, which is used by Tournadre in his Tibetan language textbooks.

THDL stands for the "Tibetan and Himalayan Digital Library" project which is hosted at the University of Virginia.
