Transcription Systems: EFEO System (French)

Abstract : This article presents the EFEO romanization scheme, which was widely used to transcribe Chinese in non-English-speaking parts of Europe in the early 20th century. Its name is taken from an academic institution originally based in French Indochina, the École Française d’Extrême-Orient (French School of Far Eastern Studies). EFEO has hosted renowned scholars such as Paul Pelliot (1878-1945), Henri Maspero (1883-1945), and Paul Demiéville (1894-1979); its missions included archaeological exploration, collection of manuscripts and preservation of monuments, as well as ethnographic, linguistic and historical studies of Asia ranging from India to Japan.
