Title
Wade-Giles or Hanyu Pinyin : practical issues in the transliteration of Chinese titles and proper names
Source
Cataloging and classification quarterly. 12(1990) no.2, S.105-124
Year

Abstract
This article briefly examines an issue currently facing cataloguers: how to transliterate Chinese proper names and titles into romanized letters. The two major transliteration systems are Wade-Giles, still used by many libraries in the West, and Hanyu Pinyin, which is not only used in the People's Republic of China's elementary schools as a pronunciation aid, but has recently been adopted by our own western media and certain departments of the American government. The authors advocate the complete abandonment of Wade-Giles in favor of Hanyu Pinyin.
