This page will explain some specific policies when working with the Tibetan language. Many of these policies can probably be applied to other similar languages (such as Dzongkha).

Script considerations[edit]

Tibetan is written in the Tibetan script, thus all Tibetan entries should be written in Tibetan script. The entry should include the transliteration of the word (see the Transliteration section for more details). The script code for Tibetan is Tibt.

Following common practice with Tibetan dictionaries, entries should not end in tsheg () or shad (), thus, use སྐད ‎(skad) instead of སྐད་ or སྐད།.
