THL Simplified Phonetic Transcription

The THL Simplified Phonetic Transcription of Standard Tibetan (or THL 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 12 December 2003. It is essentially a simplified form of the Tournadre Phonetic System, which is used by Tournadre in his Tibetan language textbooks.

THL (formerly THDL) stands for the "Tibetan and Himalayan Library" project which is hosted at the University of Virginia.
