TINAU's Hebrew Transliteration System


Learning Hebrew and Arabic with their original scripts, rather than relying on transliteration, is essential for  cultural, political and linguistical reasons.  Mastering Hebrew and Arabic letters goes beyond linguistic skills; it is a holistic approach to embracing distinct cultures and facilitating meaningful communication.

BUT Learning is a process! and we know it. This is why we choose transliterating our words of the week, every week. 


Let us explain our transliteration system that offers an easy and effective gateway to the captivating world of Hebrew phonetics:
