This guide provides suggestions for making pseudo-phonetic pronunciation cues for Wikitravel phrasebooks. The goal is to make somewhat phonetic suggestions that could be read aloud according to English spelling rules to make the correct sounds.

The following alphabet shows how we like to represent sounds in Wikitravel phrasebooks. Try to find the sound you're trying to approximate in the definitions, and then use the representation given. These are rough approximations; fine points of pronunciation can be glossed over, unless there's a risk of being misunderstood.
If there's a sound in the language you're trying to provide pronunciation cues for that isn't represented, add a representation here.
