At the 2022 Voynich MS Conference organised by the University of Malta, the keynote paper: "Transliteration of the Voynich MS text" refers to additional material that is available at the voynich.nu web site. This material is collected on the present page.
General information about Voynich MS transliteration may be found here with some additional topics provided here.
FSG transliteration (FG) version 1c
Currier transliteration (CD) version 0d
Takahashi transliteration (IT) version 0d
GC transliteration (GC) version 0c
Zandbergen-Landini transliteration (ZL) version 1r
The final version of STA was previously called ISTA-16 (intermediate STA version 16). The alphabet code in IVTFF file headers is therefore still IS16.
In the full format defition, characters highlighted in magenta (e.g. B7, B8) are not part of the normal STA definition. They are part of the so-called Level-0 STA and were only needed in order to cope with issues in the GC file related to alternative representations of some strings of i ending in Eva-l or Eva-m. Using these characters, the GC file can be converted to STA, and back to v101 without change. In the normal (Level-1) definition of STA these characters do not occur. In this case, conversion from v101 to STA and back leads to minor changes, but the STA alphabet is consistent. (See the paper for further clarifications on this topic).

Basic characters in STA
By convention, the STA codes are placed in the first column in each file. Furthermore, each file only contains those characters that are included in the original alphabet. Note that the tables for Currier and v101 include the Level-0 characters. After conversion to STA, the user should apply the L0 to L1 conversion as a second step.
