    It's hard to tell what exactly is meant without more context. But if
    I had to guess:

    * Non-ASCII scripts: scripts not supported in the ASCII encoding.
    * Japanese script: Any of the three scripts used in writing the
    Japanese language (kanji [Chinese characters], hiragana, and katakana).
    * Non-Romanized scripts: probably an error for "non-Roman scripts".
