In the Chinese World timeline, the Latin alphabet is only used in western Europe, and is far from being an international script. While most of the world uses Hanzi (the Chinese ideographic script), given how different the various Chinese and non-Chinese languages pronounce each symbol, Cyrilic has become the most used script for international affairs, much as Latin is OTL.

This transliteation for Mandarin is actually a Roman transliteration using Russian transliteration to Cyrilic. Here it is compared to OTL Pinyin (P'én én).
