ALPHABETS

Many countries - especially in Arabia and Asia - use different alphabets. "Wikipedia" offers many translation tables for all different kinds of alphabets like Cyrill or Greek. But you always have to keep in mind that such tables will give you a rough idea only of the brands name. If you are not able to read the language you should try to find someone who can translate it for you. Otherwise you will end up with wrong translations. An example: many collectors list an Iranian cigarette with the name ZR (which means nothing at all). In reality the name of this cigarette is ZAR (which means GOLD). But that's what happens if you translate with such tables. If you need translations for arab, armenian, cyrillic or georgian alphabets you may contact Giorgio Cozzi from Italy, a collector who understands these languages.

BARCODES

Barcodes identify the country where the cigarettes get produced, but NOT where they get selled. So they are a good information source if you search for the producer, but useless if you search for the country where they got sold. An exception are barcodes starting with 20, they include no information about the producer. Codes starting with 20 are company internal barcodes which are valid at one supermarket chain only. You can find a barcode prefix overview at GS1. There is just one big problem with them - if a pack gets produced under license, the barcode identifies the license giver and not the producer. By following this link you will see a detailed overview of all barcodes I found in my collection.

COMPANY LOGOS

If you possess Russian packs and you are not able to read Russian language you will soon find out that older packs always show a company logo which is a big help to identify the producer. You can find such overviews at the homepages of Svein Pedersen (A Helping Hand to the U.S.S.R. Cigarette Factories) or Herbert Zach (Help for you) and Gerson Renato Fuchs (Utility).

COUNTRY CODES

If you unfold a pack you will find lots of codes, numbers, and colour/position test prints. Of course this is not possible if you collect full packs (or empty, but 3D). In many cases there is as well a country code identifying at which country this pack get's sold, this code is sometimes the international oval code which is used at cars (1 to 3 letters, e.g. D = Germany), sometimes the ISO 3166-1-Alpha-2 code (always 2 letters, e.g. DE = Germany), sometimes just the first 3 letters of the full country name (always 3 letters, e.g. GER = Germany). Duty Free packs have codes EXP or DF. In many cases there is as well a second - smaller - country code identifying at which country the pack got printed, sometimes even the printer's name (in many cases you will be quite surprised how far away from the production plant the packs get printed).

HEALTH WARNINGS

If the pack has a health warning, it's quite easy to identify the country where it's coming from. Here an overview of the health warnings I found in my collection. But be warned, in some cases - if packs get imported in very small quantities - they have a health warning from a different country and only an additional label somewhere on the pack shows the proper health warning or at which country this pack got sold.
