The Music Theory Translation Wiki is intended as a kind of translation project for music theory symbols, terms, and concepts. Music may be a universal language, but the tools used to analyze and describe it are not. It is not just a matter of different spoken languages (e.g., English, French, Korean, etc.), but different musical systems. There are, for example, dozens of different notational systems used for labeling specific types of musical chords used by different composers, music schools and text books. The articles in this wiki would typically feature an image of a musical example representing a specific topic (e.g., chromatic harmony, rhythmic syllables). Below this contributors would add the notational symbol(s) they use to describe these features and the name of their institution. Subsequent contributors would add their institutions name to an existing section if they use the same notation or create a new section if needed. Contributors from non-English countries would be encouraged to add commentary in their native language. This would be especially helpful for International students studying at music schools in the United States.
