Romanization of Persian

Romanization of Persian or Latinization of Persian (Persian: لاتین‌نویسی فارسی, romanized: Lâtin-Nevisi-ye Fârsi, pronounced [lɒːtiːn.neviːˌsije fɒːɹˈsiː]) is the representation of the Persian language (Iranian Persian, Dari and Tajik) with the Latin script. Several different romanization schemes exist, each with its own set of rules driven by its own set of ideological goals.

Romanization is familiar to many Persian speakers. Many use an ad hoc romanization for text messaging and email;[1] road signs in Iran commonly include both Persian and English (in order to make them accessible to foreigners);[2] and websites use romanized domain names.

A sign shows the name of a station
with both Latin and Perso-Arabic scripts at Varzeshgah-e Azadi Metro Station.
