chinese transliterations

Posted by adam_p_lax January 5, 2013 in the Group I Have a Question.

Hi all,


I was just thinking recently about all these Chinese transliterations of names of products, places and people from outside of China. Does anyone know how these transliterations are created? Is there some kind of institution or group of institutions in China that comes up with these transliterations? I was just very curious about this.
