Codes for the representation of names of scriptsCodes pour la représentation des noms d’écritures

ISO 15924 (Information and Documentation – Codes for the Representation of Names of Scripts) is an international standard that defines 4-letter and 3-digit codes to uniquely identify scripts used for the written form of a language. The standard lists normative names for these scripts (or descriptions for special codes) in English and French (other languages are displayed on this page by a local translation), and also links them (when appropriate) to the version (age) of the Unicode standard in which characters for these scripts were first added (along with the "property value alias" defined for the script in the Unicode Character Database), and finally gives the date of last change of each entry (along with some basic info in the notice of changes for what type of info was added/changed/corrected/removed in each entry).

  • Where the name of the script is identical to the name of the language, the first three letters of the 4-letter code are usually matching the 3-letter language codes designated by ISO 639-2 for this language, but the script code may still be used for many other languages (including for transliteration purposes). The fourth letter in each code may be used to distinguish variants of presentation, that do not require a change of the orthographic system for texts in the same language encoded with the Unicode/IEC/ISO/10646 standard (or any compatible encoding which can be unambiguously mapped to it). Those codes for variants are shown with "Support: Maybe" and a yellow background below and not needed for any translated texts but may only be useful to tune their rendering to help readers. The bijective conversion of encoded texts between these variants is automatable with loss of precision.
  • Some scripts were encoded more recently in Unicode but still don't have at least one known font implementing them with a sufficient coverage, and that can be freely downloaded and installed on common operating systems. Translating to these scripts on this wiki is not recommended for now as it is very difficult for most contributor to check the actual meaning or accuracy of these texts. They are listed with "Support: Later" and an orange background below (this may change later when such font will be found and available worldwide).
  • Finally there also exists standard codes assigned for scripts that are for now not encoded in the Unicode/ISO/IEC 10646 standard, codes only assigned for special purposes not identifying a single script, as well as a range of codes that may be used privately inside applications but that require specific agreement. Those codes are shown with "Support: No" and on reddish background below, as they are not usable for creating interchangeable translations. Some scripts are assigned unique codes for classification purposes but are still not encoded with a standard set of characters in Unicode/ISO/IEC 10646, translating texts into languages using these scripts (also listed with this reddish background) is still not possible on this wiki.
