Transliteration of Chinese Words

Chinese words or phrases used by interviewees are transliterated into Roman characters in the English and French versions of this website. Because our interviewees and/or their families come from different regions of China, and speak different dialects, we have maintained the transliterations that each individual interviewee has come to know and use, resulting in spelling variations.
