CTP/CJM Working Group on the ALA-LC Japanese Romanization Table Formed

In 2012 CTP and CJM formed a joint Task Force on the LC Proposal for Japanese Romanization to respond and provide feedback to the LC Revision Proposal for Japanese Romanization Table. The revision was approved and released in Dec. 2012.

Based on the 2012 CTP/CJM Task Force ’s report and recommendations, CTP and CJM formed a new joint working group on the ALA-LC Japanese Romanization Table in September 2013 to collect feedback on the 2012 revision and work on unresolved issues, etc., to be chaired by Yoko Kudo.
