Pinyin - Wade-Giles - Yale Converter
Romanization Conversion Utility

This utility can assist converting between various romanization systems. It uses a standard phonetic formula and can convert individual words or entire phrases.

Each word needs to be separated by a space. Since we only translate between western romanization systems, tone marks should not be used and will return errors. Punctuation is ignored. The preset links at the bottom can guide you to its usage.

If you get many errors, make sure you are selecting the correct input romanization method.
