    I was thinking it would be call to write my notes as a transliteration in another alphabet, but the trouble is that most other alphabets (e.g. Greek, Cyrillic, Lao, Korean, Hiragana) don't have equivalents of all of our letters?

    Will I just have to use substitutes or does anyone know of any alphabet that actually does have an equivalent of all of our 26 letters?

    Thanks

    That is really interesting! It's similar to what I did once, inventing an alphabet only using single strokes.

    It's quite easy to translate from Cyrillic into English. You just need minor changes for the letters that aren't there, say v instead of w and dzh instead of j...
