Abstract: We review the current situation of Multilingual standardization which includes ISO 2022, DP 10646 and an alternative proposal HCC. The implementation of various bilingual and multilingual character code systems including UNICODE, CCDOS, Bis-5, JAE, Wang and IBM codes are discussed. It is noted that while it is important to have a unified code length in character encoding, most existing systems use variable code lengths without much difficulty. The great advantage of such systems is its full compatibility with the existing ASCII systems and its high code efficiency. A system of dynamically re-locatable code set is suggested. It is fully compatible with existing ASCII and national standards (GB, JIS, KS). It has high code efficiency and is expandable. © 1990.
