How can I learn braille in another language?

There are special braille codes for foreign languages.

'World Braille Usage' is a reference book containing a compilation of braille codes in languages from around the world and is available in our online shop.

The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) also has a braille code, which may be useful for students or professionals of linguistics. Information on IPA Braille can be downloaded for free from the International Council on English Braille website.
