Overview

The CJKI Korean-English Database of Place Names (KEP) is a bilingual dictionary of place names that covers both Korean and non-Korean place names, including Japanese, Chinese and Western place names. KEP includes various data fields such as romanized readings, frequency rankings, classification codes, locale codes and English equivalents, and supports all major romanization systems.

A unique feature of this dictionary is that it also includes hanja (Chinese characters used in Korean) for most Korean names.  This data was compiled on the basis of precise transcription and transliteration rules, and verified by our Korean editors. It supports the Revised Romanization of Korean, the latest standard published by the Korean government in 2000.
