Rila Sign System Rila

The Rila Sign System is an alternative alphabet for Russian, English, Spanish and other languages devised by Stefan Stoynov. He invented it because he finds writing text messages (SMS) in Bulgarian on a mobile phone rather difficult and he thought there might be a better way to do this. This sign system is designed to be easy to enter on a keypad and uses a small number of symbols that correspond to letters in the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets.
